Spring Classes - Revised

Here are my new offerings. 

Let me know if you are interested, then get me that deposit, ASAP. I can only guarantee a spot if I have the deposit :-) 


First off. Here is the 4 week Character Scene Study class that will be starting Monday the 9th of May. You will be working to stretch yourself as far as you choose. The challenge is to own the stretch. To work comfortable outside of your realm of comfort. As I have often said in class, character work is hard fought territory. To walk in the skin of another person is the goal. The idea is to bring in a different scene each week. The option is with you whether you bring in the same character or not. Of course, if you just want a 4 week scene study class, and would prefer to stick close to home with your work, you are still welcome to join :-) As soon as you sign up, we will work to find a script/character for you. It is really up to you what to work on. You could work on an “out there” character or just something you have not done before but you think should be in your wheelhouse.

4 Weeks - Character Scene Study (Limited to 8 ADVANCED actors)
Dates: Monday May 9th through May 30th
Time: 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Cost: 110 - 130 bucks (110 for those of you on a tighter budget). Deposit of 40 dollars holds your spot. 
Checks are preferred, but Paypal and Square (3% surcharge) payments are accepted.
Refunded for more than 48 hours in advance of the first class.
 Actors are expected to bring in their work "camera ready”. That means off book and loosely staged.
All work is filmed. Each actor receives their weekly video files. Time permitting, the work is viewed and discussed.
The requirement for this class is that you have either been through my On Camera Acting I and II classes, or you are comfortable in front of the camera and are proficient in on camera acting preparation and script analysis.

**On Camera Acting I - 7 weeks (Limited to 10 actors).
Dates: April 27th
Time: Wednesdays 6:30pm - 9:30pm
The cost is $240 - $290 (240 for those on a tight budget) 
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 check 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 10 actors)
Dates: April 28th - June 9th
Time: Thursdays 6:30pm - 9:30pm
The cost is $210 - $250. $210 would be for someone on a tighter budget. 
A $50 dollar deposit holds a spot. The balance is due by the second class.
Checks are preferred, but Paypal and Square (3% surcharge) payments are accepted.
Mailing address for check payments, below. Paypal payments accepted (Choose Friends or Family to avoid surcharge). 

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.
