Students will leave this class with a positive attitude toward their abilities in the performing arts, including improvisation, stage movement, voice, acting, and performance skills.

The following skills will be presented to the students using theater games, individual and group exercises, pantomime, and improvisation:
How to audition – what to expect, how to prepare for an audition; and opportunities to practice your audition.
Script reading – cold reading (for auditions); script markup; blocking; “off book” preparation.
Stage movement–blocking, listening, reacting, cheating, and other techniques.
Scene building – working with other actors to develop and act out a scene.
Improvisation – an introduction to a structured method of making things up and acting them out.
Characterization – how to become your character on stage.
Stage business – what you can do on stage to enhance a scene.
Pantomime–a great tool to teach confidence and stage skills as well as visibility, gesture, expression, absorption, and energy.
Voice– good stage voice; how to achieve it – projection, breathing, relaxation, awareness;, how to color it with emotion.
Acting – bringing all your skills together for your performance.
Ensemble – working together to create the optimal theater experience.
