Class Description

From your first audition monologue, to the best warm-up techniques, to building a scene with a partner, we will find out what exactly it means to be an actor. In this class, we’re going to explore the best techniques in the business to create a character and build an ensemble. Starting from the inside out, we’ll work our way from developing our individual characters through monologue work and jump into ensemble building with fun exercises and scenes. Every student will have a chance to build their audition skills and explore their acting style in a fun, creative, and collaborative environment.
