Expression for Novice Actors 40+ Online

Instrument Series

Incorporating the challenge of taking up a new art outside of your comfort zone.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.
-Neil Gailman

An opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and discover acting along with your peers. In this program we cover all the material of our regular Expression program with the added understanding that embarking on a new art form when you are 40+ can feel more intimidating. Throughout this program we acknowledge that discomfort and actively work the nerves that arise when entering an acting program for the first time.
Like singing, acting is an art of self expression; the need for greater self expression is why so many people are drawn to acting. But what inhibits your deep, free, authentic self expression? In this class you will work on developing stronger self awareness of your own habits that block self expression. You will learn how to dismantle those blocks and experience natural and spontaneous self expression.
