Working towards becoming the character is an essential part of an actor’s process, no matter how experienced. It involves creating and internalizing the details of your character’s life. These details can range from personality traits, to history and family background, to even the most mundane details like favorite color or favorite food. The more thought that an actor gives their character, the easier it is to “stay in character” throughout a scene. Our Comedic & Dramatic Character class focuses on those steps we take towards an accurate portrayal of our character, without falling into the “performance trap” of changing the inflection of our voice or our body language, because there’s a theatrical urge to force the feeling rather than allow it to develop organically as the script unfolds. You’ll learn to ask more questions and get more specific in your monologue and scene work.
ATNY’s 8 Exclusive Acting Coaches will give you the best New York Training there is. Each class is designed to build on each other, and regardless of skill level, we’ll build from where you are at. By week’s end, you’ll have a stronger understanding of the craft and your daily process will improve both your acting and auditioning skill. Campers may eat lunch together virtually. This is a comprehensive week with breaks, so you’ll be able to enjoy weekly camps with ATNY and get some sunshine too!
Classes Include: Comedic Monologue & Character Study, Improvisation/Spontaneity, Nick/Disney Scenes, Commercial/Voice Overs, Audition Technique.
