Course Description

Acting is playing. The purpose of this course is to learn to have fun while teaching! In addition, participants will learn how to improve their communication skills, presentation skills, and teacher-student engagement. The instructor takes a playful approach to teaching Stanislavski oriented techniques for the craft of acting, which are the foundation of the “American” style of acting. This course will also provide teachers who direct their schools’ theatrical productions with best practices for communicating with actors with clear, specific and actionable language that will set their students free to “live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”

Participants are guided through exercises selected from: the Meisner Technique that builds spontaneity, authenticity, and listening skills; Viola Spolin’s “Theater Games” that teach actors to live in the moment, responding truthfully and intuitively to their surroundings; and script analysis from David Mamet’s “Practical Aesthetics” which helps actors choose specific playable actions to influence their fellow actor.

Together, these approaches help teachers bring more enthusiasm to their lessons, think creatively on their feet, remove self-consciousness, and improve verbal and non-verbal expressiveness for more effective classroom productivity.

These courses are created to help teachers to reduce their own stress, keep their motivation and have a healthy work-life balance. Some courses promote artistic production and dramatic performance as practical tools for recreational play and self-expression. Other courses focus on arts and theater as inspiring subjects for students, teachers or both. Still other courses introduce fundamental tools for stress management: meditation, mindfulness and yoga.
