ACTING 101: BEGINNING ACTING

Course Description

In this enjoyable introductory class, you’ll learn how to create characters, memorize dialogue, and use your voice, body and emotions as acting tools. 

Whether you’re taking an acting class just for fun, to get over your stage fright and get more comfortable in front of people, or have professional aspirations to act in television or movies or on stage, everyone is welcome.  

We’ll do warm­ups and theater games, improv and scene work. You’ll also get information about Seattle’s film and theater scenes, and learn about auditioning opportunities in Seattle. 

This class can be taken by itself, or applied toward our Certificate Program in Acting.
