Measurable accomplishments and lots of fun are the objectives for each two-hour class.

Personal body language will be examined and interpreted with a view toward extending the range and reach of each individual. The course includes mask work and the specialized skills and adaptations required for strong, articulate characterization. Mime and Pantomime will be explored in terms of historical and contemporary value to the actor. Text, props, sets, sound and costume will be used wherever they support the process.

Final classes will focus on the creation and effective presentation of original material suitable for auditions and other self-contained performance.
