In our Scene Study workshop, students work on scenes in small groups. The instructor will use the scenes to work on elements of acting – characterization, non-verbal communications, motivations, relationships, etc. Students work on their scenes and “perform” for each other. The instructor and other students in the class provide feedback. Students will learn how to make physical, emotional and vocal choices to improve their performances which can then be applied to other performances they are working on.
