Class Description


Level 2 continues your study of scene work. You will learn how to choose and maintain a strong point of view, how to play more developed characters, and how to sustain longer scenes. You will then explore the next set of skills which include doing call backs and playing second and third beats. After this class you’ll be able to take on most long forms.
