Acting 101

This class focuses on getting beginners comfortable in front of a crowd, feeling confident, while learning some solid “technique” behind acting. A lot of people want to take an acting class because the art itself feels so amorphous – they want to know exactly what “TO DO.” Brittany teaches the Stanislavsky method because she thinks it gives new actors concrete tasks to focus on. You’ll read plays and learn how to analyze them as storytellers.
