Acting Fundamentals

Acting Fundamentals
Ages 8-13

Starting ground. This is the first level of our acting courses, where students will learn and discover the foundation of acting principles and techniques. Students will learn acting basics: objectives, tactics, obstacles, beats, text analysis, awareness and focus. They will study scenes and monologues, and learn the tools for creating precise, focused, relaxed and playful relationships on stage.

*Please note: Classes do NOT conclude in any type of performance or recital. They are for educational purposes only, for technique and learning the craft!!
