This class is a scene study workout that uses challenging scenes from theatre and film (and sometimes TV) scripts to explore technique and deepen acting craft. This Stella Adler® program will challenge actors with exercises specific to each student’s performance and the scene they are exploring, and provide tools to add to the actor’s arsenal. This class is on-going and geared towards long-term development, as well as useful for a periodic refresher and tune-up!

The Ongoing Professional Workshop is a place for professionals to work. This class will explore in-depth Scene Study, with particular focus on the vitality of moment-to-moment experience and the full pursuit of actions. The goal is to create provocative characters that animate the text and uniquely showcase the actor. The intrinsic value of this communal exploration is that creative discoveries made by one actor are applicable to all.

This advanced level class is an “immersion” experience in the techniques necessary to work in feature film as well as in television dramas and comedies. Students will learn to memorize scripts quickly, relax in front of a camera and “find themselves” in the roles they are playing; three skills necessary for success in feature film and television performance. This class will serve as a direct extension and expansion of the work done in Intermediate Acting for Film & Television, replicating the rigor and fast pace of the professional work environment.
