Acting

This class uses Meisner Technique which focuses on external sources for inspiration, with actors reacting to fellow performers and their behaviors. They will work on improvisation skills which enable an actor to be spontaneous and respond to live moments as well as rehearsed situations. Students will develop the backstory for their characters and learn to trust their instincts. They will advance their interpretation skills and be better able to support their authenticity as an actor while communicating a character’s journey. In their partner work they will practice listening and responding to their scene partners making the process more believable all while developing the true meaning of the script. They will be given a monologue in which they can directly address the audience and speak the characters thoughts aloud while alone on stage. Giving them incredible tools for pursuing anything in life. They will receive many opportunities to perform, on our in house stage, during a revue show at the end of each session.
