6:30 – 8:30 P.M.

Students work on self- selected monologues in order to learn about character development and stage presence.

We provide a safe environment where you can take risks and learn about:

  • • Business aspects of acting such as photos, resumes, agents, etc.
  • • Physical and vocal skills
  • • Relaxation, focus, concentration
  • • How to audition
  • • How to make the most of your rehearsals
  • • How to have fun and reconnect with your creative instincts

Teaching is based on a realistic, naturalistic approach to stage acting through text analysis skills. Class size is limited to assure individualized and personalized attention.

This class is for educational purposes only and will not secure or guarantee opportunities for employment in the field or representation by an agent.

Classes are designed for adult students, age 19 and older. No prior experience is needed. Previous students are welcome.

Cancellation policy: Deadline to cancel class is 5 days prior to start of first class if class minimum is not met, unless otherwise discussed with instructor.
