SUMMER CLASSES

THE FORGOTTEN PARTNER:  A Movement Workshop for Actors

 

WHEN: June 27, 2021

WHERE: Back To One Studios, Raleigh

WHAT TIME: 11am-3pm (breaks will be included)

Brain? Check.

Voice? Check.

What about the forgotten partner?

 

Actors train three things: Minds, voices, and bodies. Our jobs as actors are to be more emotional, more aware, and more athletic than your average person. Yet more and more, actors are failing to train the acting instrument as a whole.The result is a “head-up” actor with a body that betrays their voices, thoughts, and actions.

 

Add embodiment to your acting techniques with conservatory-style training for the Actor Body. Get or stay on par with the great actors of the world and train your whole instrument!

 

You will engage in ensemble and solo exercises and games so that you can:

* increase awareness of surroundings and others in it

* fully engage your body as a vessel for expression

* develop more spontaneity and authenticity in your movements and thoughts

  • find ease, comfort, and confidence inside your own skin

  • Send and receive intent with whole-body clarity

  • apply what you learn to creating interesting characters on stage or tv/film

 

This class will be in-person. Responsible social distancing will be employed. Please bring what you need to stay comfortable in this social setting.

 

HOW MUCH: $50

WHO: ALL people. ALL abilities. Ages 18+

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I am open to suggestions for classes! I have created some of my favorite classes because someone came to me and said, "I need this really bad. Do you do this?" or "I heard you did this but can you do this?"

From creating fight scenes from Romeo and Juliet with teenage girls to embodied singing classes with people with physical or psychological blocks: 

  create a class with me!
