PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CLASSES

On-Camera Technique

We combine two of our PD courses into one 8-week class. Actors spend the first four weeks learning how to audition for the camera and the last four weeks gaining experience acting in front of it. Get practical hands on experience. A must for anyone wanting to increase their skill in acting on-camera.

Acting as a Business

The business side of acting is just as important as knowing how-to act.  This must-have class covers topics such as: headshots, resumes, agents,  social media, and much more. Increase your business savvy and take your career to the next level.

Acting for the Camera: Film

Students take a short 5-minute excerpt from the scene or one-act they are rehearsing and translate it for the film, giving them the experience of being in front of the camera and working on a real set.

Voice-Over with Wendy Zier

Wendy Zier, professional VO artist (Disney, Hasbro, Citgo) teaches this fun and informative class, giving you the tools you need to set you up for success as a voice-over artist.

 

With over 25 years experience, Wendy covers topics such as  breaking down a script, working with a mic, understanding different types of speaking styles, how to approach the business, and in-class coaching.

Auditioning for
the Camera

Students take a short 5-minute excerpt from the scene or one-act they are rehearsing and translate it for the film, giving them the experience of being in front of the camera and working on a real set.

MASTER CLASSES

Acting: Sense Memory

This Master Class focuses on utilizing your senses to connect to objects, people, and text better. Untap the technique needed to bring truth to your character's emotional life and environment. A must class for any serious actor.

Character Development

Using techniques such as animal work, observation, movement and voice, students will explore creating a character using fictional or non-fictional people and bringing them to life.

Improvisation

Learn how to live in the moment and act on the spot in this fun and exciting class. Students learn games, long and short forms of Improv, and improve their skills for listening and communication, all in a risk-free environment.

 

Acting with
Movement

Explore acting with the inclusion of movement. Students will learn to use their bodies to help tell the character's story using Feldenkreis, Alexander, and Laban techniques.

Shakespeare

Take the fear out of Shakespeare and discover the beauty and fun of this often misunderstood branch of acting. Students explore the language of Shakespeare and the literary styles he uses including iambic pentameter, anthesis, prose vs. verse, and more, while working on a monologue chosen just for you.

Script Analysis

Students will gain a deeper understanding of story structure, character traits and arcs, archetypes and how to identify them, scene arcs, act arcs, act breaks, subtext, and theme.

 

There will be professional audition sides in the final two classes, allowing students to put their new critical analysis skills to the test.

 

Those interested will also have the chance to perform the sides for critique and redirections. 

Styles of Performance

Step up your acting game with this Master Class. Students will work on short monologues while exploring four different styles of performance: Clowning, Realism, Farce, and Elizabethan.
