This event is in the past.

Actors Connection's NEW 6 Week Scene Study is simply your best opportunity to flex your Acting muscles! 

Scene Study is THE class where students take all of their technique and harness it for performance. It is a weekly workout where actors test their performance abilities in a safe and encouraging environment. This is a chance for the actor to "tune up" the tools in their tool belt and get their instrument working at 150%. Liz integrates a variety of exercises into the scene study format, as well as the perspective of an industry insider working with the actor to learn to take risks and make big, bold choices thereby giving the actor an opportunity to improve their craft while gaining performance experience. 

Liz looks to bring each actor to an honest, instinctive place and wants the emotional life to be organic and the choices to be exciting and truthful. Through working on scenes of various genres, she will help you discover your strengths and weaknesses with the help of the trained eye of a producer, casting director, teacher and coach. Liz will select scenes for you and your partner based off your My Profile section in your Actors Connection Account. 

This class requires that the student already have acting training and are ready to fine-tune their skill set. This is a class intended for intermediate/advanced actors.

Class size is limited to 14 to ensure personalized attention and plenty of time with each actor. 

**Please keep in mind that all programs at Actors Connection are for educational and professional development purposes. Participating in any class or event is not a promise of employment.**

Please update your headshot and resume in your online account as needed upon registration.
