Have you always wanted to give acting a try, but weren’t sure how to start, or were apprehensive about getting started? Did you always wonder what it would take to prepare and perform on stage? Have you been on stage once or twice, but would really like to work on the basics again so that you can improve your next performance and develop as an actor?
The Acting for Beginners course will introduce you to all the basic skills and techniques you need take on a role, develop the character, properly prepare for the performances and then perform confidently on stage. The course is designed for beginners with no experience, or those who have had one or two small roles and want to further develop their skills.
A partial list of course content includes:
- Mock auditions
- Character analysis and development
- Movement and voice
- Relaxation, concentration, presence, and warm–up techniques
- The rehearsal process
