In Acting 101 students start with very simple, yet effective confidence-boosting exercises. They are encouraged to use their imagination and take creative-initiative in the class. Once students begin to confidently express their thoughts and ideas, they begin to work together as a team to tell stories. While working together creatively students develop listening skills and the ability to communicate clearly. The foundation of 101 is improvisational acting, which helps young actors value one another's ideas, and build off of them, in order to create something exciting and dynamic.
