Students will focus on the advancement of their acting technique and skill set. Through the exploration of sensory work, improvisation, character/scene study, text analysis, and more, participants will learn to achieve rich, natural, and honest acting perfect for stage or film.

STUDENTS WILL EXPLORE:

  • Technique Strengthening: Go beyond pretending and role-playing and actually experience REAL LIFE on stage or screen. Our Method-based technique centers on bringing the actor’s own life experience and understanding to character and scene work.
  • Improvisation: Improv is becoming very common in the audition room and on set. The fast-paced, quick-thinking nature of improvisation is key to bringing naturalism and realism to any actor’s work.
  • Character Development: The secret to quickly uncovering the W’s of any and every character!
  • Scene Study: Understand the structure, relationship, objectives, and conflicts of your script and/or audition sides. Learn to work with other actors, listen and respond, and exist in the moment!
  • Script Analysis (including subtext and logic work): Discover what’s simmering under the lines and hiding in every moment.
  • Monologue Preparation: Let us help you find and perfect your monologue.
  • Audition Preparation: Important, helpful, and fun auditioning tips to prepare young professionals for cold readings, advanced audition sides, and interview questions.
  • Cold Reading: This most intimidating audition practice will be debunked!
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Parents/Guardians are responsible for paying the ENTIRE class fee no matter the number of his/her child’s absences and/or in the case of his/her child’s discontinuation of ANY Arts Effect program.
