Movement for Actors

Saturdays // 3:00pm-5:00pm // April 25 - May 16

As an actor, you bring life to characters, and directors in every genre of performing are requiring much more physicality of their performers. Connecting, understanding how your body moves, and understanding what you are able to do with movement can open up your approach to developing your characters in a whole new way. By learning basic movement patterns and how your body works, you can become older, younger, tired, energetic, injured, overweight, shy, frightened, in love...once you understand your instrument, there are so many options available to you.
