Acting - Winter Term

If you're looking to get involved in theatre or just looking to pursue acting as a hobby this course will lead the way. In this class students get a chance to dig into the techniques of acting. Character, vocalization and physical exercises will give you a great start to discover your range of expression. At the end of class you'll have a collection of tools that will apply to staging, script work, how to work with actors and directors and more. A student showcase will top off the experience and showoff the hard work of the class.
