Movement for Actors

“An ounce of behavior is worth a pound of words.”        Sanford Meisner

An actor’s job is to create behavior, and behavior is expressed through the actor’s entire instrument, their body, their voice, their breath, their imagination and their impulses.  The 6-week workshop Movement for Actors helps us to unlearn restrictive habits that block experience, breath, access to our emotions and our ability for expansive behavior.

This class will use various movement techniques to teach actors how to free their bodies as well as shape their body’s energy to fill the space.  It will explore how emotion informs our physicality and what we can do to have greater access to our emotional life.

The actor must have control of their instrument in the same way a violinist must have control of their violin and bow. This class begins the journey of understanding the instrument’s roll in telling the story.

ACTING FOR BEGINNERS -The Character in Performance

April 20- June 22. Wednesdays 2pm

Class Filled

It’s why most of us decided to pursue acting - To "be" someone else. Walk in their shoes, speak in their voice, feel their pain, live their joy! – to become THE CHARACTER.

THE CHARACTER class gives acting students a foundation in creating truthful, dynamic characters for film, television or stage.  It teaches techniques that find the character’s voice, physicality and psychology.  Students work on strengthening their vocal and physical presence, creating characters that are believable yet completely different from themselves. Through exercises, improvisations, monologue and scene work, students acquire a comprehensive set of “acting tools” to draw upon when approaching a role.  At the end of the 10-weeks, students will know how to bring a character to life and apply their techniques in scene work and performance.

Come join this fun, supportive but immensely practical acting class.

Proof of VACCINATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL IN PERSON CLASSES.
