Breaking it Down: Scenes, Sides, & Scripts 

Most actors pretend and indicate. They do not listen; they wait for their cue’s, ready to “act” their line readings. This class focuses on looking at different works allowing the student to learn how to develop a truthful acting instrument rooted in fundamentals. 

In this class, the student will learn how to react truthfully, how to approach a script, how to interpret what is being portrayed,  & how to list to your intuition on the stage.

Feedback is given and scenes are filmed.

Broadway Dance Auditions 

Musical Theatre requires Dance. There is no way around that fact. Don't Limit yourself to roles because you "don't dance."

This class will focus on Recognize, Repeat, Retain Perform. Each week there will be a new routine with steps that are found in local and professional Musical Auditions.  Students will be taught the technique of the steps in advance at varying levels and then will add them to the routine.  The end of the month the class will end with a mock audition where they will  have evaluations that will allow the student to learn what they can improv on.  It will also be posted to a private YouTube account for them to view and review on their own.
