Acting Fundamentals Series

Most students start with the classes in this series. If you take all SIX, you will earn a Certificate in Acting Fundamentals.  For adults 18 and older. 

  1. ACTING 101: FUNDAMENTALS – In this first four week introductory class, we’ll learn some basics including how to do improv; how to memorize dialogue; and how to begin performing short scenes. If you’re new to acting or have been on a break from it, start with this class.
  2. ACTING 102: CREATING CHARACTERS – In this class, we’ll focus on understanding the character(s) we’re portraying, connecting with them on a genuine level, discovering their backstories and objectives, and bringing them to life.
  3. ACTING 103: EMOTIONS – Our focus in this four weeks is on increasing the range of emotions students can feel and express when acting.
  4. ACTING 104: INTER-ACTING – In this fast-paced four week session, We’ll focus on listening to and responding to our scene partners, “making it real,” and letting go of preconceptions about where the scene is heading.
  5. ACTING 105: PERFORMING LONGER SCENES – In this class, our focus will be on performing longer, more complex scenes involving several characters.
  6. LET’S MAKE A MOVIE – In this class, we’ll make a movie, starring the students in the class. It’s a good way to get something for your reel. Some students take this class several times, to get several different clips of themselves acting as different characters, for their reels. (This class can also  be applied toward the Acting for the Camera Certificate)

Voiceover Acting Series

There’s acting in person, on stage or in front of the camera – and then there’s voice acting.  Voice acting is the art of doing voice-over work on a wide range of features such as TV shows and feature films, animated shorts, commercials, radio plays, documentaries, video games and more.

In voice acting, the actor’s face never appears on screen, but he or she has the opportunity to create a character and make a connection with the audience using only vocals.  An actor might be twenty, forty, or sixty years old, but using your voice you can create a character of any age, nationality or species.

You can use your voice to create characters who are svelte and frumpy, attractive or repulsive, hopeless or sexy, young or old, funny or dramatic. Voice acting is fun, and a great way for actors to improve their general acting skills on and off the screen.  

Most students in our voiceover classes are adults. Ages 14 and older can sign up.
