The Arch Street Teen Center recently christened its new Greenwich Grind Coffee House, which received its name after a contest entered by teens from all corners of town.

On Tuesday Kyle Silver and Felipe Gomez were at the GHS Health Fair, introducing themselves to teens and saying  hi to ones they know from the teen center and its 30-strong Teen Center Board.

Felipe, who is finishing up at Southern Connecticut State University, also finds time to serve as creative director at the teen center, where he works on social media and the teen center’s website and design.

The teen center is offering a free Acting for Film & Theater class on Thursday afternoons beginning on April 2nd.Felipe said the workshop is open to participants in 8-12th grade. Students will develop a strong sense of self-confidence in their performing abilities through breakthrough acting exercises inspired by the gifts of the great master teachers (Stanislavski, Adler, Strasberg, Meisner and Uta Hagen) and designed to bring out the best in each actor.

Each class will also develop the actors’ performance and audition skills through scene study, monologues and on-camera work. Classes will be limited to a maximum of 15 actors to assure personal attention.

The course will be led by Kyle Silver who said instructors will come out from the city to work with teens. At the end of the workshop, students will deliver a monologue that will be taped.  The workshop is free but for a $40 materials fee and runs 8 weeks beginning on Thursday April 2 from 4:30 until 6:00pm.
