TAUGHT BY JOSSIE HARRIS THACKER
“I believe confidence is the biggest gift we can give our children.”

A message from Coach Jossie:
With the threat of COVID-19 causing all of us to stay at home there is no better time than now to create a space, a virtual space even, where kids are encouraged and inspired to let their imagination run free with possibilities. I’d love to help you with that.

At, “Kids W.A.Y (Who Are You?) Acting Academy” our students, also known as, “W.A.Y kids”, are creatively challenged to get closer to successfully answering the question, “Who Am I?”. And what better time than now with so much time on their hands. Our focus is teaching tried and true acting techniques while simultaneously building self-confidence. Coach Jossie will guide W.A.Y kids through acting fundamentals such as improv exercises, scene work, monologues, writing and mock auditions.
Kids W.A.Y Acting Academy's mission is creating a safe place for both kids and teens to gain self-confidence in order to boldly share their gifts as professionals in the entertainment industry. Kids W.A.Y also equips kids and teens in discovering their true voice in hopes to help combat and prevent being a victim of bullying. I’d love to be their acting coach.
