Class Experience

Learners will have a basic understanding of how to break down a monologue, lines, or piece of text as an actor. They will answer questions like “What does the character want (objective)?”, “Who is the character talking to?”, “Where is the character?”, and so on. They will create a character that is unique to them. I hope each learner begins to define what kind of actor they want to be. They will be able to apply what they learn in class to future monologues and performances!
No homework is required. Learners are encouraged to pick a section of text ahead of time and memorize if they choose.
Learners are encouraged to have a space where they can be loud and can move around. We will be using our full bodies and voices to perform and play games.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The physical exercises and movement will not be too strenuous for the learners. The movement we do in class is not excessive or prone to cause sweating. Bottled water or footwear should not be necessary. However, the student may come prepared with water or proper footwear as they see fit. The movement we do in class is very minimal. Most of the class will be about the performance and the creative process.
