January-February Classes

Hello all.

Here are my classes for next round. I will be doing one and done scene study classes in January, as well. There will be one last Actorcise next week before the Holidays. I will let you know the details.



**On Camera Acting I - 7 weeks (Limited to 10 actors).
Dates: January 7th - February 18th
Time: Thursdays 6:30pm - 9:30pm
The cost is $250 - A $75 dollar deposit holds a spot. Refunded only up to 48 hours before the first class. 
The balance ($175) is due by the second class, after which there is no refund.
Mailing address for payments, below. 
Checks are preferred, but Paypal and Square (3% surcharge) payments are accepted.

Beginning with improv and easing into scripted scene work, this is a relaxed,
fun approach to getting comfortable in front of the camera. 
The objective of the class is to establish the foundations of a process that emphasizes
simply listening and talking - being "in your skin" - as opposed to in your head. 
This is a great transitional class for theatre actors and an excellent foundational class for new actors.
All work is filmed, reviewed and discussed - time permitting.


**On Camera Acting II - 7 weeks (Limited to 8 actors)
Dates: January 6th - February 17th
Time: Wednesdays 6:30pm - 9:30pm
The cost is $220—A $50 dollar deposit holds a spot. The balance is due by the second class.
Mailing address for payments, below. Paypal payments accepted. 

Moving beyond "being in your skin" and finding simplicity on camera, here the focus is on script analysis, 
the "headspace" of the character, rehearsal process and auditioning. Actors are expected to up the ante, 
as we get into the hard work of acting. Know that this one will require more of your time outside of class. 
The class is especially tailored to actors who have already been through the Foundational I class, though that is not a requirement.
All work is filmed and (time permitting) viewed and discussed.
