Description

Class Experience

• Learners will be introduced to the concepts of audience and volume.
• Learners will demonstrate appropriate call and response using their voice (e.g. - loud vs soft), physical movements (e.g. - strong vs smooth), and imagination to create the foundational elements of theatre.
• Learners will perform imitative movements, theatre games, rhythmical activities, and be introduced to key vocabulary words related to theatre, performance, and acting.
• Learners will takeaway knowledge re: how an actor uses their physical instrument, voice, and imagination to create a theatre experience and begin understanding how to define actor, character, and audience. 
This class is led by an internationally renowned and critically acclaimed / award-winning SAG/AFTRA/AEA Performing Artist with over 2 decades of professional acting experience in television, film, live theatre, commercials, and radio. I have been teaching numerous styles and elements of acting / voice / dance, life skills, yoga (various disciplines), and meditation / mindfulness techniques to children and adults since the age of 16. In addition, I am a trained Wellness (Health) + Life Coach. Please see my Teacher Profile for additional information.
No homework is assigned.
Learners are required to have an open and safe work space (please clear the area of anything on the floor including rugs), wear sneakers with socks, comfortable clothing that allows for unrestricted movement, and have a water bottle handy. As with any class game or physical activity, it is suggested that learners go at their own pace. Paper and pencils, or preferred writing element is optional if a learner would like to take any notes. Note-taking is completely optional for this class however, and not required.
No acting experience is necessary for this class and there are no assessments other than guidance. With that said, learners are encouraged to ask questions or request clarification as needed.
