ACTING WORKSHOP

These Workshops offer complete basic training to the student artist for inspired acting. Influenced by the classic techniques of Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov, Stella Adler and Kate Kennedy's own technique developed after 20 years as a Los Angeles Casting Director for the Major and Independent Studios, these ACTING WORKSHOPS offer student artists the necessary and practical techniques in order to transform into character in a believable and healthy manner. It will challenge the student's understanding of acting because many techniques are no longer useful in today's industry. Taught by professionals working within and current knowledge of how the industry works today, the training is cutting edge within a classic framework. Simply put, we are helping the student artists to learn how to create and add tools necessary on their path toward becoming a better actor. Limited class size.
