Class 166412: Acting 102
Tuesdays, 6-8 pm, August 9, 16, 23, & 30
Location: Phinney Neighborhood Association
Nils Osmar, instructor


In this class, you’ll learn how to approach scripts professionally, focusing on your character’s goal (what he or she wants in the scene); motivation (why it matters); and other key elements of acting, to bring the character you’re portraying into focus and bring the scene to life.

We’ll do more improv, scene work, and warm up exercises, while moving students’ acting abilities to the next level.  As in all of our classes, there’s lots of performance time and practice in class. Fun times! And lots of learning. Instructor: Nils Osmar



  • Some students have asked how this course differs from the Acting 101 class. Acting 101 is intended as an introduction to acting (laying the foundations for developing a range of different skills). This class is taking things to the next level.

Student comments about this class:

Beginning Acting was fun; Intermediate Acting was where the real work started. The instructor worked hard to give students a solid foundation in pursuing their goals in the field. I highly recommend this class. – A.M., Seattle

I loved the first meeting… I feel like I finally understand the idea of ‘objective’ in a way I can actually use. When it clicked it was like a light going on. I don’t need to plan the emotions at all, just find who my character is and what she wants. Everything falls into place. Yay! Great class, Nils! – Mary R., Bellevue
