If you’ve never had a TV/Film On-Camera Class or need to learn the genre, this is for you. A perfect class for young talent who wish to have a TV/Film career and/or musical theatre talent wanting both.  In this class, each student will learn from monologue and scene study.  You’ll have a choice of comedy and/or dramatic material. Together, we’ll prepare for an optional final showcase day in New York City.

Up to this point, you’ve learned that acting is about performance. As a musical theatre artist, you play to the audience. This class is the opposite.  There is no audience.  In fact, the audience is irrelevant. Your job is to have a simple focus. Your scene partner. Your focus will always be outside yourself, on something or someone external. Through Meisner Technique exercises, inclusive of improvisation, you’ll also learn the art of spontaneous reaction.  Do you want to have fun with your acting? Of course you do. Then stop doing it the way you rehearsed. Learn to live in the ‘now’ and instead of trying to make the scene something, simply allow it to become something on its own.  Allow yourself to be surprised by yourself. Without effort, you’ll be more interesting and create memorable moments.

And then with Improvisation it’s all about Confidence, Spontaneity, and getting our of your head! ATNY’s Improv class is the safest environment to take the biggest risks! It is one of our most popular classes because it’s less about doing (performing, acting, forcing) and more about being. Strengthen your auditions by being comfortable in your own skin!
