ABOUT THE CLASS: Eric's scene study classes utilize scenes from contemporary theatre, film, and television. Small class sizes ensure individual attention and every actor works every class.
The classes focus on text analysis, character development, collaboration with partners, and incorporate many different acting tools, philosophies, and techniques. The classes provide a place for working and auditioning actors to explore, expand, and challenge themselves and each other in a supportive environment. These classes are recommended for actors with previous acting training and experience, since they focus on practice and "workout" rather than as an introduction to acting methodology. New students will be asked to provide a resume and/or summary of previous training.
