What you'll learn in this acting class:

This 10-week (fall, winter, spring)/ 8-week (summer) class is a follow-up to ESL Beginners Acting Class I. 

In this class, students will delve deeper into the Barrow Group approach and tools, while working on ensemble building games, script analysis/story structure, monologues, and scene study.

The English as a Second Language (ESL) class combines The Barrow Group approach to acting with diction work. Vocal exercises strengthen skills in the pronunciation, intonation, and stress of American Standard dialect, while the acting work is adapted to also engage vocal work. For example, during script analysis, students explore American stress and intonation patterns so that the logic behind them becomes clear.

All exercises are designed to:
  • Encourage spontaneityFoster real human behavior
  • Help the actor become more sensitive, imaginative, responsive, and alive onstage
  • Relax the actor
  • Change the work effortlessly and invisibly (so the audience won’t detect any effort on the actor’s part and therefore will feel like they are watching a real person rather than an actor “working”)
Bring more freedom to the work
This class is ideal for students for whom English is not the first language, as well as for others who would like to work on American Standard pronunciation and diction.

Prerequisites:
ESL Beginners Acting Class I.
