This class is designed for those looking to take their acting or auditioning skills to the next level. It introduces students to the essentials of acting by using improvisation, movement based exercises, and simple 2 person scenes. Students will learn to relax into the moment instead of trying to “make something happen” and just allow the scene to unfold naturally.
