The Actors Academy: Take One "WhAt’S iN YoUr AcToR’s BaG?

The Actors Academy aims to connect and provide the essential acting tools needed for the modern thespian to succeed. We provide a platform for directors, acting coaches, casting agents, producers and film makers to teach the techniques needed to develop and sustain a great acting career. 

The mission of The Actors Academy is to awaken the imagination, emotion, and intellect of the student actor by making him/her aware of the transforming power and universality of acting and the skills required to achieve excellence in performance. 

The courses this session will focus on nuances that all thespians must understand and have the ability to pull out of their "Actor's Bag". These talents, if mastered, will assist any actor in their progression within the craft.

Course Topic: British Dialects

This course will explore some common dialects of the United Kingdom, with a particular focus on the cadence, musicality, physicality, and vocal and oral characteristics inherent in British speech patterns, especially when compared with American dialect characteristics. With these fundamentals under your belt, you'll have the tools necessary to more easily access and lean into these more common British dialects.

Course Topic:Improvisation

Director:Monique Banks

Resident Acting Coach: Dr. Tammi Rogers

Course Description: Improvisation is a vital skill for working actors to have in their repertoire.  It is increasingly common in auditions for actors to be asked to improvise a scene, and improvisation also provides many advantages in both rehearsal and performance.  Being in the moment, being present, and connecting with the other character, are all imperative to a good performance, and there is no better way to master these skills than through improvisation.
