Acting For Ordinary People

An introductory course for everyone! If you’ve ever wondered what an actor does, this is the class for you! This class creates a fun and safe environment for beginning students looking to gain confidence in their public presentation skills while taking some first steps into acting. Students in the class will use monologues to explore the basic choices an actor must make while working on a role. The emphasis will be on doing — students will be performing in class regularly throughout the semester. No experience necessary!

Acting II

Do you feel the need to develop a process to approach your work on stage? Feeling rusty or a bit out of practice on your basic acting techniques? This class will focus on developing the ability to make strong choices and heighten emotional intensity in your work on stage. In each session, the instructor will help you to refine your ability to find beats, play subtext, create believable emotions, engage in cold readings, and express objectives through physicality. The class is designed for actors or all levels of ability and class size is kept small to ensure individualized instruction.

Children’s Acting (ages 9-13)

Do you ever get accused of being overly dramatic? This class will teach you how to take that dramatic energy and focus it into a performance. We’ll explore theatrical techniques by using creative play in the form of improvisation games, movement, and small theatrical scenes. Please note, quiet and shy people have a flair for drama just as much as those who’re outgoing.

Instructor: Karen Ball
When: Saturdays beginning April 6, from 10am to 12pm (8 weeks)
Where: Acorn Studio
Price: $125.00
