Spring 2019: Acting Foundation Intensive


The professional actor has a command over a specific process that is tailored to their specific needs and is rigorous. Knowing how to implement that process for any character requires confidence in your approach and methods.

ACTING FOUNDATIONS is a four-week intensive class held on weekends that examines the necessary foundations of every actor’s process and provides each actor with a clear and distinct approach to character development.

The course is designed to dig deep into Konstantin Stanislavki’s principles of given circumstances, tactic/action/objective/super objective and obstacles, which exist in the shifting reality your character is in.

Whether you are new to developing your acting process, or need to re-examine and evolve your current process, this intensive class will enhance your ability to analyze dramatic texts and fire your creative imagination as an actor.

Entry by pre-approval.
