Discover the Heart of the Scene
Bring Yourself to the Work
Be Fully Present with Your Scene Partner
The Beginning Scene Study class provides new actors a space to slow down, breathe, and work with their scene partner to bring a story to life. Building on the exercises taught in the beginner acting technique classes*, acclaimed acting Coach Pamela Scott assigns partners to explore scene work. Each pair will use relationships, emotional preparation, and the beginning of character work to advance their technique. This 4-week course is ongoing with the option for actors to re-enroll at the start of each session to continue developing their work.
