The Level One Six Month Full Time Acting Program is a vocational training course designed to provide foundational preparation for an acting career in film and television. The program was created to illuminate and develop the inner life of the actor.
This program will give the students a practical knowledge of the classic disciplines of acting. They will have a strong understanding of who they are and how they can bring themselves to the work. Through self-discovery and the study of human nature via traditional theatre technique actors work toward becoming thoughtful, provocative and entertaining artists.
Training includes understanding of their own creative process, a set of skills for rehearsal, script analysis, voice, improvisation, movement, and audition technique. At the end of the program the actors perform in a showcase for industry professionals, family and friends. Actors also leave with a reel showcasing their work.
