How many ways can we communicate without words? We say so much with our body language -- both in acting and in our daily lives! Our screens give us a great way to experiment with how tiny details can tell big stories. This class will invite students to explore, practice, and perform with a special focus on movement and non-verbal tools. No sitting back this spring: we'll get moving and inspired from head to toe.

"What does my character want, and what will I do about it?" Combine imagination and investigation in a spring session that explores the actor's tools through both improvisation and short texts. Unscripted exercises develop an actor's spontaneity and trust, while scripted tasks engage deep curiosity and interpretation skills. Put both together this spring and push performing to new heights!

Active, connected, and committed: no matter your role, how do you move a story forward? This session looks at the mechanics of how plots are constructed, and reveals how each actor brings unique information and urgency into a scene. Structured improvisation provides the foundation of this class, using tools and tactics that can be applied to both scripted and unscripted projects.

A light and buoyant approach to performing via Zoom, this six-week class is tailored to the individual adult participant, whether it's diving into a new play, a classic you love, or working on a modern TV or film script. Actor McKenna Kerrigan brings her extensive experience working on camera to an adult acting class that centers curiosity and experimentation. By using the intimacy of the camera's frame and very brief text samples, this class invites playfulness and variety as participants explore how an actor's smallest choices can make a big impact.
