In this class you will learn about short and long-form improvisation and acting terminology, such as objectives, beats and subtext. Additionally, students participate in monologue and scene work, as well as fun warm-up games and acting exercises.
At various points throughout the year students are given the opportunity to present what they've been working on for family and friends at an informal public performance. Whether that be a one-act play they've created, a monologue they've worked on, or a fun improv game they want to show off. In preparation for this event, students will go through the process of rehearsing, working together as a team and gaining the confidence required to get up in front of an audience.
Acting 201 offers students the opportunity to advance their acting skills in a supportive, low-pressure environment, while having fun in the process.
