Acting and Theater Classes for Kids, Teens & Adults

Acting For Young People (AFYP), the theater division of Potomac Arts Academy, brings the absolute best in acting and theater classes to our community!

Potomac & AFYP - Better Together!Our energizing collaboration allows us to give you a greater opportunity to experience professional level theater and acting training. Look for expanded programs, exciting new offerings, and new class and performance spaces!

The goal at AFYP is to provide actors of all ages (5 years to adults) with professional-level training in a supportive and fun environment. Through this training, we hope to help our actors develop skills that will serve them in all walks of life, on stage and off. Our faculty is made up of working professionals in the industry – actors, directors and teaching artists who are constantly honing their skills through their creative endeavors and bringing those skills back to share with our students.
