Students work on assigned scenes and short and long-form improvisation exercises in this course. Truthful, expressive moment-to-moment behavior, self-observation, and a point of view are the tools gained through exercises and scene work. By exploring these elements, actors learn to make specific choices. These choices allow them to play characters in a truthful & believable way. Learning proper technique and finding consistency with creativity offers the actor confidence and freedom to interpret scripted and unscripted material. Curriculum stems from the teaching methods of Sanford Meisner and Uta Hagan, building on the “Yes and…” approach learned in the Improv Technique class.
Intermediate Acting is a required prerequisite for Advanced Acting/Improv course. All curriculum at BTC is cumulative.
