Through fun improvisational exercises and games, this class teaches the foundations of the craft of acting: active listening, objectives, movement, and connection. Each student will also work on a monologue and a scene. This class is great for the beginner or for those who wish to get back in shape by revisiting the fundamentals of acting.
Taught by Amanda and Art Hennessey
Words from previous students:
"Introduction for Acting was nothing short of a personal journey. It provided a disciplined foundation for character development, speaking and scene study, while at the same time was flexible enough for the unique growth of each individual actor in the class. An improvement in acting is noticeable after just one class. I would strongly urge anyone who is well-versed in the field, to anyone who is a novice, such as myself, to take Amanda and Art’s class. Since their class, I’ve landed several auditions and booked a couple of acting jobs. I look forward to enhancing my knowledge of acting by enrolling in the next class level soon."
"This class is perfect for you if you want to be an actor, a better presenter, or a more engaging public speaker. And if you're just curious about what actors do and why, it's good for that, too."
