ACTING

So you wanna be an actor, eh?!

 

Acting classes encompass learning to work with scripts, language, stories, characters, intentions, and actions.  We focus on things like: creating a character (mentally, physically, vocally); shaping scenes (thru-lines, arcs, rhythms, tempos); voice (clarity, projection, strength, dynamics); staging/blocking (movement, flow, placement); collaboration/trust (teamwork, building a cast, sharing connections on-stage and with your audience); listening/responding (effective partnering).

 

Ovation! acting classes are a unique educational and social experience. Students need to be willing to try, experiment, and let their guard down/be open.  There’s really no right or wrong in acting class.  It’s about the personal journey and the discovery as you go along, building towards a presentation of your work.

 

"To grasp the full significance of life is the actor's duty, to interpret it is his problem, and to express it, his dedication.” ~ James Dean
