Adult Learn to Act ~

STAGE & SCREEN

For beginner through to intermediate students wishing to develop their acting skills in an exciting training environment.

Adult programs at Ovation! offer a unique educational and social experience.  Adults come to classes like ours for a variety of reasons.  You may be looking to try something new, or to get back into something you’ve always loved but have been away from for awhile. Whatever your motivation, and regardless of your current ‘level’ of expertise (or not!), taking an acting class will always.........  Boost your confidence & self-esteem  <> Improve your presentation skills (oral and dynamic) <> Exercise your body, mind, and soul  <>  Provide joy and fulfillment!

In this class, we explore the core elements of drama. You’ll examine voice, body, movement, characterization, speech, and thematic communication, through a variety of scene studies.  When preparing for a role every actor asks 6 questions: WHO AM I? WHERE AM I? WHEN AM I? WHAT DO I WANT? WHAT IS MY OBSTACLE? HOW DO I GET WHAT I WANT? We will learn how to answer these questions, how to pursue that powerful want, and how to recognize what is stopping you, because conflicting needs and obstacles are what create Acting!  We’ll examine these elements primarily from the live-stage performance perspective and then we’ll re-focus a bit to the on-screen perspective to identify and understand the similarities and differences between the two mediums.  You’ll work with scenes, commercials, monologues from a variety of sources/materials.
