Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this film and television acting class:

In this class, students will delve deeper into the Barrow Group approach and tools, while working on ensemble building games, script analysis/story structure, monologues, and scene study.

Prerequisite: Beginners Acting I: The Basics

All exercises are designed to:

  • Encourage spontaneity
  • Foster real human behavior
  • Help the actor become more sensitive, imaginative, responsive, and alive onstage
  • Relax the actor
  • Change the work effortlessly and invisibly (so the audience won’t detect any effort on the actor’s part and therefore will feel like they are watching a real person rather than an actor “working”)
  • Bring more freedom to the work

  • Introduction
  • Review syllabus
  • Theatre / Improv games

Week 2:

  • Script Analysis/Story Structure

Week 3:

  • Memorization Exercises
  • Set Building

Credits are valid for one-year.
  • If a student wishes to transfer to a different class, they must notify us by email at [email protected] at least business days before the first day of the registered class. No transfers will be allowed after this.

Question from anonymous
Hi! I took the Beginners Acting I class at TBG and I really loved it. Even though I am not an actor, I would like to continue and take the Beginners Acting II, but I was just wondering whether this class is more for professional actors or whether it is also a good fit for amateur actors. Thanks!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Beginner II is considered the next step after Beginner I, and would be a good fit for actors who don't have a lot of experience yet.
