​These classes are about the fundamentals of acting through exercises, script analysis, scene study, improv and monologues. Here you will explore and develop the actor's artistic tools: body, voice and imagination. You will gain an understanding of the actor’s process in building a character, and be encouraged in making their own creative choices of self-expression, in bringing written characters to life. This class atmosphere is friendly, highly supportive, energetic and fun, and an excellent place to honor and examine your acting “bug.” This class will also prepare you for the audition process from having the perfect headshot and resume to being a STAND-OUT in the audition room!
