Explore the world of acting in a fast-paced, fun, one-week immersion course!
Immerse yourself in a one-week acting experience! Character work, monologues, and scene work will be addressed in a fast-paced, challenging and fun class. Exploration in emotional range and collaboration will be addressed, as well as voice and speech work.
You’ll come away with new skills and new friends in this packed week-long class. The final class includes a performance for family and friends.
After introductions, we will begin with some brief acting exercises that will cover speech, movement, and creative expression which will enhance the students’ understanding of all of the elements involved in the acting process.
We will spend the week discussing and working through the acting process and various aspects of acting. We will cover:
- Creating a character
- Television and film roles and scenes
- Commercials and voiceover
- Vocal and dialect work
- How to prepare for auditions
- Improvisation, posture, and movement
The last half hour of every day will be reserved for a Q&A with the instructors and the students on the acting process and “the business”.
