Scene Study

Choosing a class:

If you are new to Actorium, your first step is Dialogue & Impulse.
If you feel you are not ready to jump directly into scene study you can also start with the Actorium Intro class.
If you are unsure, email us at hello@actorium.ca

Scene Study 1: Dialogue & Impulse

Dialogue & Impulse teaches how to work freely in scene work. The first month is exercise based using simple scripted dialogue. Work is filmed for a mid program screening and feedback. The second month all concepts are applied to a full scene. Final scenes are filmed and edited.
The primary goal of Dialogue & Impulse is to build the actors confidence in ‘the process’ of acting and in so doing giving the actor the freedom to let go of focusing on results.

Scene Study 3: Character Development

Character Development encourages actors  to stretch themselves, take risks and discover new ways to deepen character definition. Adjustments in physical appearance, voice and movement are studied. Each class begins with a two hour Foundations class. Students may request specific roles to work on. Roles must include a monologue.
Monologues are filmed intermittently throughout the program to watch the growth and development of the character.

Testimonials

It’s a pretty amazing breakthrough when your brains locks onto the meaning of the character and what their motives are and how to express that authentically. I’m starting to have some depth and understanding of what acting truly is about. Feels really good too. Makes one want to cry. Ciao for now mentor, friend and confidant. I’m so glad we met.

I wanted to extend my thanks for facilitating my learning/growing over the past few months. I’ve discovered so many things that have eluded me in my acting process for years. My audition yesterday was kind of like the culmination of what I’ve gone through in your class up to this point. It was nice to go into a very intimidating audition with solid tools and the confidence to know that I can “go there” if I bring in my commitment and focus.

I just wanted to reach out to you to say that of all the things we practiced in the sessions I was in, being present in the room has been, by far, the one that has helped me the most. Not only on set but in every audition. I’ve been working pretty much non-stop since the beginning of August. It’s also done wonders for my confidence because I don’t feel like I’m “winging” it or that I got a role on a fluke. For the first time since I started acting I feel like I see things more clearly and I’m having fun! Thank you so much for your passion and patience.

The work we’ve done in class, ever since my first foundation’s class has been invaluable. I spent so much time hiding what was inside that I often missed out on connecting with others throughout my life and it means a lot to be in front of other people who are willing to show themselves even just for a few hours a week. It has made me more honest with myself.
On top of that I’ve never felt so much like an actual actress before. All the classes and courses I’ve ever done were with an emphasis on your own actions and reactions.

I feel like Laban movement has been a gateway for me. It is so invaluable. For the first time I feel like I can be someone else while acting. I’m more confident and more excited than ever for more challenging and interesting roles.
That means so much to me!! You have no idea!!

I just thought I’d check in to say that lately I’ve been really inspired to just sing and dance and express myself like I never have before! I thought that was neat, and definitely part of my growth from exploring more voice and movement at Actorium. It’s not just about the scenes and doing well in front of others, it’s about personal growth and change and freedom too… thanks.
