Acting on Stage and Screen
Acting from A-Z (suitable for beginner to advanced students)

Whether you envision yourself acting on the Broadway stage, the big screen, at your local community theatre, or even in corporate/commercial pieces, this course provides the necessary skills to render a performance that is exceptional, consistent, and flowing. Come and learn in an environment that is friendly and supportive, where you will put a variety of techniques and methodologies into practice through:
  • scene study (analyzing scenes in various scripts from the actor's perspective; exploring techniques for character development through action, motivation, and relationships within the scene).
  • scene work (reading, performing, and discussing scenes).
  • a diverse range of exercises, "theatre games", and activities to optimize voice and breathing, speech and articulation, movement, isolations and combin-ations, freeing the body, utilizing space, sense memory, emotional recall, personalization and substitution, and more.
  • improvisation activities (i.e. once you have the author's words and actions crystallized in your mind, you personalize them through a series of challenging improvisations, using your own words to invent significant moments of your character's life that do not appear in the text).
Come and explore your creativity in a friendly and supportive environment, and learn to identify the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of tapping into the resources deep within yourself in order to master any character/role that you are called upon to play. From preparation to performance, this course will give you all tools necessary to ace every performance! Film and television issues/techniques are also covered.
