Made Up Theatre is excited to offer acting classes, as part of its growing curriculum. Acting is a powerful form of art that allows you to break through your comfort zone and become a more confident individual. In this class, you will develop a basic understanding of acting fundamentals through Stanislavski-based practice. Using exercises and scene work, this class introduces students to the elements of dramatic action, text analysis, and character development, as well as the tools for releasing inhibitions and expanding vocal and physical range. No experience required!
