This course enlarges the student’s understanding of “performance” in a playful, encouraging, collaborative atmosphere. Acting Workshop-101 is designed to offer students a dynamic, engaging encounter of theatrical training. Through fun and engaging exercises, students will work on overcoming stage-fright, improving focus and concentration, connecting with others through trust games and active listening, understanding “stage presence,” and opening their imaginations to playing characters. The workshop utilizes improvisational exercises and written texts to guide the actor to a full realization of self and the building of a truthful acting performance.

This workshop is appropriate for those who've never studied acting before, or for those who are looking to build upon their dramatic training.  Some minimal memorization will be required. Students will be expected to attend all three scheduled classes and to actively participate in games and exercises. Don’t worry – if you’re shy and need a little help emerging from your shell, you are welcome here. Experienced actors may enjoy this refresher also.
