Adult Acting Classes

Live the life!
ON-CAMERA. Class Intensives.
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced & Master Level

 

BEGINNERS

NEW TO ACTING? Replace your fear with confidence. In this safe space you’ll LEARN HOW TO TAKE RISKS, TRUST YOURSELF and to be guided by the relationship rather than the ‘story’ or the ‘character’.  Learn the basics of auditioning.

 

FOR ACTORS WITH NO EXPERIENCE or training or who are transitioning from modeling, athletics, dancing and even the corporate world into acting. This class is perfect for directors or producers who want to understand the acting process.

 

  • 6 classes, twice a week for 3 weeks

  • 4 hours

  • Every student works in every class

  • Limited to 12 students

INTERMEDIATE

EXPAND YOUR IMAGINATION and learn the importance of discovering specifics to CREATE A CHARACTER and how they help you focus on the other person instead of yourself. GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD and INTO THE RELATIONSHIP. With more challenging scripts, this intensive will delve deeper into creating a life, and the audition process will be explored more thoroughly.

 

FOR STUDENTS WITH SOME TRAINING (college, etc.) and experience such as commercials, student films and shorts.

 

  • 8 classes, twice a week for 4 weeks

  • 5 – 7 hours

  • Every student works in every class

  • Limited to 12 students

ADVANCED

Dig deeper into your core using SPECIFICS and IMAGINATION. Discover more COMPLEX, CHALLENGING material while still TAKING RISKS and living in the moment (and your body). Lean into the discomfort (and excitement) of the unknown as we explore both the creative and practical challenges of complex auditions.  

 

FOR PROFESSIONAL WORKING ACTORS with prior training and experience including co-stars, leads in Independents, and professional theater experience.

 

  • 8 classes, twice a week for 4 weeks

ONGOING CLASSES

DEEPER CREATIVE EXPLORATIONS include: more detailed script breakdown to support creating more COMPLEX CHARACTERS, working with multiple ‘scenes’ and full scripts, preparing for cold reads, callbacks and shoots…all while still creating characters QUICKLY, SPECIFICALLY, and THOROUGHLY. Practical explorations may include the challenges of audition and on set experiences.
