Classes run from January-May. $125 per month. No experience necessary.
Acting students will learn the fundamentals of basic acting. They will build a solid acting foundation through the study of monologues, commercials, and film scenes. Students will also explore improvisation more thoroughly, learning challenging games and exercises. Acting students also discuss auditions and the importance of first impressions.
Actors will complete the level one class with an accelerated sense of self, achieved through both solo work as well as working with others. Whether you are a social butterfly or on the shy side, you will not only gain acting for the camera skills, but also basic public speaking and presentation skills which will prove essential to becoming a successful actor.
About your instructor: PJ Barnes
Although his film life has been in the foreground for the past 7 years, PJ has never left his love for the stage. Over the years he's directed and choreographed several musicals and theater productions across the country (integrating his hip hop background with his broadways and show tunes styles) as taken the stage to perform stand-up comedy whenever he gets the chance.
PJ is excited to be apart of the Acting Out community, and is thoroughly enjoying teaching students, and helping them grow in their respective crafts. As a teacher, PJ feels he can not only influence, but also gain new information and learn from the unrestrained minds of the students, as they come into their own, and put their teachings to use.
