(Date display reads day/month/year)You must have prior acting experience to take this class. Not appropriate for beginners. 3 spots remain. Our next "Up On Your Feet" wont be until Summer! Stan's classes replicate the actual audition experience and are designed to teach and solidify those specific skills that will consistently result in successful readings: making choices, expanding emotional range, engaging the actor’s imagination, learning solid, dependable technique. Audition scripts are derived from actual TV and film scripts that cover a range of styles and all scenes, commercial copy, and monologues are recorded in HD and played back for review. Sides are emailed to the actors in advance of the first class, allowing actors adequate time to prepare, and roles are assigned not only because they are appropriate casting for the actors but also because they will stretch the actors in challenging directions.Following the initial readings, actors work with Stan on specifics: defining beats, explicit character choices, playing precise objectives, believability, emotional grounding, spontaneity and improvisational skills. Course of 6 classes starting Tuesday January 22nd. 7-10pm. $400.00
