Learn To Act is an introductory class for people with little or no acting experience. In a welcoming, light-hearted atmosphere, we help you develop your confidence and abilities.
We will teach you to be confident in different acting skills, including improvisation, using the breath and the voice, creating an effective stage picture and building a character.
As the course progresses, we explore more challenging areas of acting, such as text, movement, vocal skills and staging dialogue. You will learn games, exercises and techniques designed to widen the range, power and flexibility of your voice. We will ask you to choose and learn a text, which you will have a chance to perform in all sorts of contrasting ways as the course progresses. This will give you an insight into how to bring the written word alive in performance.
We will also work on a text by a major playwright, such as Chekhov or Ibsen.
