ACTING CLASSES LONDON

Be The Actor Within’s London acting classes last for a minimum of two hours. In each class, every participant has the opportunity to work both individually and as part of an ensemble.

 

The acting classes begin with relaxation and preparation exercises before moving on to a variety of craft work, monologue exploration, emotional awareness, improvisational exercises and scene analysis.

 

Our work is designed to identify each actor’s emotional scale on any particular day so they can understand their own ‘instrument’ and in doing so address character, scene and relationship obligations.

What you will be doing

The acting classes begin with an initial round of relaxation and preparation exercises which consist of a variety of:

• Relaxation techniques
• Breathing exercises
• Tension awareness
• Self guided meditations
• Physical warm ups

Stimulation of the senses (auditory, olfactory, taste, tactile, visual) designed to:

• Raise sensory awareness
• Identify unique emotional responses to stimuli
• Train the senses to respond on stage as they do in life

Different craft exercises are worked on each week, although some craft approaches may be repeated a number of times.

 

We use a number of different acting techniques including:

• Constantin Stanislavski
• Uta Hagen
• Lee Strasberg
• Eric Morris
• Sanford Meisner
• Michael Chekhov

The remainder of the class is spent dealing specifically with monologues and scenes.

Dramatic material is allocated to each participant dependant upon their level of experience, objectives for the term, individual obstacles and unique blocks.

Participants are welcome to propose their own material if they would prefer to do so. Dramatic material can be used from any play, poem, book, tv show or film.

The showcase is an opportunity to present the term’s work in front of friends, family and industry professionals.

Please note, although not compulsory, all members of class are encouraged to take part in the showcase. However, If for any reason an individual feels that their work is not yet at a level ready to be shared then they are welcome to attend the showcase as a member of the audience.
