If you've been thinking about starting a career as an actor, Acting 101 is the PERFECT way to start off. You'll work with Maggie Phillips who will introduce you to a variety of approaches to Acting, Stage basics, Terminology and the Craft of Acting.
Acting begins with the ability to be your authentic self in the present moment. Maggie will begin with imagination exercises and improvisation to help you be present, truthful, and therefore more compelling onstage or onscreen. You'll then work your way into text and performing scenes, covering the basics of scene analysis: discovering character, point-of-view, working off your partner, making it personal, finding objectives, and building up circumstances and emotional stakes.
These techniques will help you prepare for roles and auditions, and find your authenticity as an actor.
Class size is limited to 14 to ensure personalized attention and plenty of time with each actor.
