In this class we’ll explore the foundational concepts of acting in a hands-on way. Working on scenes we’ll uncover the different layers of a script and how to translate those things into a performance.
Writers often say, “Start with character.” That’s what we’ll do. Who is this character? What do they want? What are the obstacles in their way? How do they overcome them? How is their character transformed? What purpose do they serve in the story? The actor is ultimately a storyteller.
We’ll work on technical elements like pacing and rhythm, physicality of character and we’ll explore more imaginative work like the psychology of the character and the given circumstances of a scene. In essence, acting is an act of imagination – believing something to be real that isn’t.
By the end of this class, you’ll have some practical tools that you can use to analyze a script and bring to life the words of the writer in a truthful and believable way.

Self tape auditions are here to stay, making it more important than ever for an actor to be able to understand the sides and deliver their best with no redirection. 'The Audition' class will focus on On-Camera audition techniques. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced performer, there is something available for everyone! This class is specifically based on Linda Darlow’s 12 Choices curriculum. In this 6-week class, Henry will teach the 6 basic choices that must be in every audition scene. These choices will help with breaking down the script and analyzing it correctly to deliver a personal and unique audition or self-tape
Actors will get individual feedback which will help them make stronger choices and understand the stakes in the scene, so you are prepared for your next audition.
