Studio & Performance Level

Studio Scene Work

In Studio Scene Work students hone their performance skills, such as being seen and
heard, listening, character, and being fun to play with. The smaller class size gives students more opportunities to work and gives coaches more opportunities to provide detailed feedback. Studio Scene Work is a great tune-up for advanced students who have taken a break from studying. It can be taken multiple times. Students move out of Studio Scene Work when the coach and Dean determine the student is ready to advance to Performance Level classes.

Upcoming Studio Scene Work Classes:

  • 4-Week Studio Scene Work – with Dave Dennison
  • 4-Week Studio Scene Work – with Regina Saisi

 


Studio Specialty

Studio Specialty classes offer an in-depth exploration of a variety of skills to strengthen scene work. Past classes have included character, acting, genres, where, voice, and stage presence.
