10 Session Program. Scene Work - Improvisation - Monologue Study - Showcase Performance opportunities.
The focus of this course is on relaxation and natural performance based on sound fundamental acting technique. We also provide the unique opportunity to perform before live audiences in their own in-house showcase productions.
Many people who attend these classes have never acted before and just need a supportive environment to try it out. We work in very manageable steps. You will not be asked to do anything you are not comfortable with.
Acting programs are often very intimidating. The instructors are harsh and anxiety is not addressed. We offer a more humane and effective alternative. Our program is designed to empower as well as guide you through the acting experience.
