LEARN TO ACT

STAGE & SCREEN

 

 

~ For beginner to intermediate students wishing to develop their acting skills on stage and screen in an exciting training environment.

 

Explore the core elements of acting. You’ll examine voice, body, movement, characterization, speech, and thematic communication, through a variety of scene studies,  integrated discussions, textual interpretations, readings, presentations, viewings, and exercises fostering an appreciation of the elements of acting whether it’s for live performance or for filming.  We’ll explore the differences in the requirements and preparation for stage vs. screen performance and delve into the 6 core acting 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?
