Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn how to create an interesting character and bring themselves to a role.  They will learn to breakdown a script and perform as if acting for film or tv. This is a great introductory class so that they can later join an ongoing scene study course. 
I have taught acting classes to beginning actors, students in schools in the US and abroad and to professional actors in Los Angeles, Atlanta and the Caribbean. I am currently a professional actress in LA and can help your student explore the basics of on camera acting in a fun, supportive and encouragin environment!
Students may need to watch TV or films to research specific materials. The selection will be based on confirmed parental approval. They will need to learn and memorize their (short) scenes. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
A one page handout will be provided to every student. Additional scenes may be provided for those who prefer, but casting themselves in various characters and studying shows/films with their character types is encouraged.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Feedback will be given upon performance with the opportunity to adjust and make changes. 
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
If your actor does not already have a scene in mind or choose one provided, they have the option to find their own scene on tv or film. This scene choice must be approved by the parent. The parent may want to assist in helping the student write down the words for the characters in the scene. These should be short ~ 1 minute scenes with one to two people in the scene. No curse words or questionable materials will be allowed. The script will then be submitted to me (teacher) for approval with parent's confirmation before performance is allowed in class.
