Acting I
3 Credit Hours

Acting I offers energetic, in-class activities which are designed to develop concentration, energy, creativity and character connection, even for students who have never been onstage-or who might not even plan to be onstage someday. It is a performance-based course which offers much individual and group practice on techniques ranging from Improvisation and Motivated Movement Drills to Concentration/Creative Exercises to Physical Centering Techniques. It is designed to introduce students to the fundamental training components of Acting through participation in a variety of these creative exercises. The course culminates in scene work which teaches students to believe in the actions of a character. It is the recommended prerequisite for Acting II.
