Sanford Meisner said that, ‘acting is the ability to live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.’ In this 10-week acting class, we will work on the first half of that statement: living truthfully. Working through a series of innovative, step-by-step improvisational exercises we will train you to be thoroughly responsive, emotionally alive, spontaneous and absolutely grounded in the reality of what is happening at any given moment with any given person. These foundational exercises will get you out of your head and into being absolutely present to the world around you and the people with whom you share it.
Class is held on Mondays from 7-9:30 p.m. (Jan. 7 through March 11), Fridays from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (Jan. 11 through March 15) or Sundays from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. (Jan. 13 through March 17). $295.
