Class Structure and Style

       

This class is for participants aged 14 and up to learn the basics of stage performance.

Each class is 1.5 hours long, and will cover a different concept.  Students will be exposed to

   

  • Physical Acting technique, including Michael Chekhov’s Psychological Gesture technique.

    • This technique has been proven to be especially helpful for athletic performers and ‘movers’.

  • Intellectualized Acting technique, including Uta Hagen’s Workbook technique. 

    • This technique has been proven to be helpful for academically focused learners.

  • Additional movement theory, including the works of Rudolf Laban and Konstantin Stanislavski.

 

Students can expect to learn

    

  • how to build a character, 

  • how to think creatively, and 

  • how to prepare monologues and scenes, both alone and (if possible) with others.

 

Students are encouraged to work with other family members within their own household. Parents are encouraged to join in too.
