Through immersion and experience as actors, students will learn language and techniques to improve performance, audition and rehearsal procedures. Improvisation, physical movement, body language, and voice development will be explored in character creation and development. Teaching methods include lectures, demonstrations, class exercises, workshops, scene study and games.
