ACTING & DRAMATIC ARTS

The acting and dramatic curriculum is designed to develop the actor as an individual artist and as an effective member of a creative ensemble. Each course draws from a continuum of specific techniques to develop the actor’s mind, voice, and body for a confident and honest performance before a live audience. Improvisation and scripted scenes provide fluency in the acting fundamentals of conflict, action, and given circumstances. As collaboration is essential to the creation of live theatre, the actor will develop skills of willingness and personal motivation, to listen and respond, to find creative solutions for problems as a member of a team, to confidently give voice to original ideas and grow their respect for the ideas of others.
