Three courses serve as the foundation of our Seven-Week and Five-Week Programs. These foundational courses are customized to train a range of actors from beginning to advanced, offering you the ideal opportunity to sharpen your craft this summer while working alongside The Academy’s master instructors.
Training: Excite and release the storyteller inside of you! Discover and expand the relaxed, free and truthful use of self in imaginary circumstances; develop trust in spontaneous, moment-to-moment reactions and learn how to apply these techniques to dramatic texts.
Coursework: Exercises for relaxation, concentration and sensitivity to fellow actors, as well as internal and external stimuli to achieve focus and involvement, leading to dramatic analysis, improvisation and scene study.
Training: Add strength and emotional range to the natural voice; develop the voice as an instrument of communication on and off stage.
Coursework: Principles of voice production are applied through structured exercises for optimal vocal health, audibility, breath efficiency, articulation, intonation, resonance and phrasing.
Training: Develop the body as an instrument for the actor in order to engage in dynamic physical expressivity.
Coursework: Movement techniques and exercises are taught to increase flexibility and to develop the actors’ imagination, muscular coordination and control.
