What you'll learn in this scene study class:

Acting 101: 6 Week Beginning Technique & Scene Study w/ Maggie Phillips, Profesional Actress, Acting Teacher & Coach

If you've been thinking about starting a career as an actor, Acting 101 is the perfect way to start off. You'll work with Maggie Phillips who will introduce you to a variety of approaches to Acting, Stage basics, Terminology and the Craft of Acting.

Acting begins with the ability to be your authentic self in the present moment. Maggie will begin with imagination exercises and improvisation to help you be present, truthful, and therefore more compelling onstage or onscreen. You'll then work your way into text and performing scenes, covering the basics of scene analysis: discovering character, point-of-view, working off your partner, making it personal, finding objectives, and building up circumstances and emotional stakes.

These techniques will help you prepare for roles and auditions, and find your authenticity as an actor.

School Notes:
Class end time will vary depending on the number of actors and the scenes that are assigned. Registrants are advised to budget extra time, as class time may run over.

There may be special cancellation policies for holidays that are printed in the schedule. If you cancel in time, credit is automatically returned to your Actors Connection account. If you are canceling late, no credit is given unless we find a replacement for you. We have, on occasion, been able to replace actors who late cancel with others from wait lists or who might be standing by. If you are replaced, as a courtesy, we will not charge you for the late cancellation. Please consider any late cancellation a charge on your account, and any resulting replacement a courtesy. You may want to re-adjust your schedule to attend, since although we do our best to have full seminars we can never promise a replacement. If you are a "no show" for a seminar, you will not receive credit under any circumstances.

It's a very basic course, like really basic. Sure you will get to do one little scene but honestly, you are better off buying some books on acting and reading some articles and signing up for something actually more specific or challenging. I just think it was too expensive for such a basic intro class.
