ACTING 102

Acting 102 is a follow-up for students who’ve taken Acting 101 or a similar class, and would like to continue learning and developing their foundation acting skills, through acting exercises and analysis of their characters’ needs, wants, motivations and backstories.  Plus, you’ll learn a “sight read” method that makes cold readings in auditions much easier.  You’ll have fun and take the next steps forward in developing your acting skills. You can take this class just for fun, or as part of our Certificate Program in Acting FundamentalsSeattle: UW campus

ACTING 104
