About the class

In this class, participants will actively explore the performer’s most fundamental skills. Through a series of theatre exercises, they will connect to the power of their voice, gain awareness of their bodies in space, and unlock their creativity by developing characters and exploring storytelling.   

In a playful environment, committed and fully engaged, participants will explore a variety of acting techniques to help bring their best foot forward as performers – and in their everyday lives.   

The class will end with an open class to share what they have learned over the 10 weeks.
