Create! Challenge! Become!
This introductory acting class is designed for the beginning student.  Curriculum at this level starts with the basics of technique while encouraging creative thinking and challenging students to work hard to get things right!  Incorporating improvisation, terminology, and some script work, students will start to develop their voice, body, and mind as they pursue goals, create characters and scenes, and work as an ensemble. This class is typically taken more than one time in order to build a good basis for moving into the Intermediate classes.
