Class Descriptions:

This class nurtures the Young Actor’s creativity through exercises designed by Lee Strasberg and applied at a level commensurate with the teenage experience. Students train in this technique to develop the actor’s ability to respond with real behavior to imaginary stimuli.  The first part of each class begins with Lee Strasberg’s relaxation technique and moves to his sequence of sensory exercises. The second part of each class is devoted to improvisation, scene work and/or monologues. The exercises and scene/monologue work continue to become more complicated with each young actor’s progress, length of study, and experience.

This class provides Young Actors the opportunity to tailor their work for the camera. Commercials, auditions, scene work, and other exercises highlight the different technical skills and adjustments required to cultivate a film performance. Cold readings, scene work, monologues, and commercial copy are introduced, practiced, and critiqued for greater mastery of applying Lee Strasberg’s Method to the medium of film, television, and commercials.

This class calls for collaborative storytelling along with a vivid imagination. Students learn the rules of improv, especially the willingness to say yes to the ideas of others.
