Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
Studying acting helps you learn who you are and teaches you to “lead from the middle” in collaborative groups. It also helps you develop eloquence, integrity, empathy, imagination, flexibility, discipline, logic, skills in research and critical analysis, and a well-trained voice and body. This course will include intense training in voice, body, and emotional technique. We will study the history and theory of acting styles and apply our learning to preparing short performance pieces. Our methods will include self-reflection through journaling, analysis of dramatic structure and of individual character, rigorous vocal exercises, and scene work from great dramatic literature. Students will also be encouraged to pursue, outside of class time, a disciplined physical practice of their choice, such as yoga, Tai Chi Chuan, or a martial art. Texts will include Benedetti's Stanislavski: an Introduction , Linklater’s Freeing the Natural Voice , and Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. Credit will be awarded in Acting and Voice.
