Course in Essentials:

Photo of Acting Coach in Los Angeles, CAThe purpose of the course is to make available to you the acting technique I learned at the Yale School of Drama. acting class group The technique is presented through exercises, discussion, and scene work. The exercises are carefully-crafted, purposeful, exciting explorations that are designed to give you an experiential grasp of the elements of the technique taught in the class. Discussions elaborate on the principles presented in the exercises.

Also, the technique portion of the class includes a weekly body work component, designed to help the actor build awareness of habitual physical tensions andthe ability to let those tensions go.

The goal of the scene work is to help you, the students, see how the tools and principles of the technique function within the context of practical work. Andrew in action in class. You work on one scene for the duration of the course. When you go up in class with your scene, I spend an hour or more with you and your partner to help you identify and fulfill the next aspect of the scene that confronts you.

You'll rehearse with your partner every week outside of class, and each week you'll have provocative new tools that you encountered in the last class to try out in your rehearsals. At the end of ten weeks, you will have come a long way towards making a character come alive and illuminating his or her experience.

Advanced Workshop:
Students who have participated in two ten-week cycles of the course are eligible to join the Advanced Workshop, which is offered in addition to the Monday night class periodically according to demand. Andrew in action in class In the Advanced Workshop, first and foremost, we continue to develop our facility with the skills and principles presented in the Monday Night class.

Students are admitted to the Advanced class not because they have necessarily reached a level of skill in their acting but because they have achieved some comprehension of the approach taught in the Monday Night class. In addition to working to hone skills as described above, typically in scenes from Chekhov, in the Advanced class we look at the problem of verbally dense material and verse drama, and students work on Shakespeare monologues.

The Advanced Workshop affords highly dedicated Photos of Andrew Wood Acting Studiostudents of acting who share a way of working the opportunity to work together and be challenged by rich, demanding dramatic works.
