Acting/Improvisation Class

NEW! Registration now Open!

May contain: person, human, and people

This class is Dark in September, and will return in October.  

In this introductory four-week class, a total of eight classes where safety is paramount, students will learn to communicate directly to the audience only through their senses and the physical language of the stage- creating reality out of nothing.

In our non-judgmental environment, students will have fun with theatrical warm-ups and gain experience sharing on the stage in groups, as well as independently. As students become more familiar with the games, the process of releasing their inhibitions, and "sharing" with the audience, fun and creative expression will develop naturally.

("Sharing" is an informal, theoretical term the instructor will use when directing student performers to speak louder or to be more visible on stage for the benefit of the audience.)

It is important to note that there is no competition in Improvisation- there is only growth. Thus, the instructor primarily serves to promote individual growth in the process during group activities. 

It is also important to note that there will be no scripts for students to take home for memorization. The only homework might be that students begin to observe natural interactions in public, hearing the sounds in the air, or perhaps, feeling the wind against their skin, in order for them to get a wider view of their personal world. Students will use these sensibilities to help them solve problems in their groups while being careful to "share" with the audience. This may prove useful in facilitating or quickening their development as actors. 

By the time the workshop is complete, students will realize that "All the world's a stage."- William Shakespeare.

Age: 11 to 15 years
Time: 4:00 -5:00 p.m.
Day: Tuesdays and Thursdays
Length: 4 weeks, 8 classes
