Acting for the Camera

A BRAND NEW addition to our class schedule!!

This class will help actors and non-actors to learn the skills needed to work in front of the camera.

Students will learn on-camera techniques that will translate directly to film and television, including commercials, monologues, improv, and scene work in a compact, intensive offering over a 6 week period, on Thursday evenings from 6 to 7 PM.

Students should expect to invest a few hours of their own time each week rehearsing and preparing for each class.
