Through exercises, games, improvisation, scene and on-camera work, students will continue to develop the foundations of good acting. Students study fundamentals including blocking, story arc, character development and sensory awareness with an exploration of audition technique and acting for stage versus film. This class will review and build on the fundamentals taught in Acting I/II and prepare students for more advanced acting classes. Students have opportunities, through creative play and group work, to perform for each other and for guests.
