LEVEL 2 INTERMEDIATE COURSE
This Intermediate course is for people who have some experience in the industry but want to create more impact and and develop acting skills. The premise- ‘Focus of Attention Away from Yourself is the creative source of acting” This is the basis of Jeremiah Comey’s film acting technique who Juliet worked for in LA as his assistant coach. It is scripted film scenes in pairs. You will be trained to get your focus off yourself on to a partner, and this allows you to start being able to access a greater emotional repertoire which you need as an actor. It also will build confidence once you start to see that your performances are at a level that is industry ready. This is paired scene work. All scenes filmed. Good preparation for developing show reels.
Tuesdays- 7 pm- 9pm- 6 Week Course, Fee $300.00 (10 Students only)
Dates-Tuesday 24th June till 29th July (still to be confirmed)

LEVEL 3 ADVANCED COURSE
This has a shift in focus to Monologue work as any trained actor has to know how to work solo and have enough technique to handle solo performance. This is really the test of how much craft you have. Any stage audition will most probably involve a monologue. Since a lot of actors first get attention from their stage work it is necessary to have these skills available to bring to your work. Also a lot of technique now relies on having a scene partner, but to have real confidence you must know how to negotiate solo material for when there is no scene partner and no one to work off. This class develops the actor’s ability to work from the emotional impulse that is generated by text. It develops a set of actor’s “muscles “-which are nothing more than receptivity and sensitivity. Our is an interpretive art, what our response is to material -is what we have to offer- our uniqueness and vitality is what makes up our talent. A new monologue must be prepared and memorized every week for the 6 weeks.

Tuesdays-7-9pm- 6 Week Course, Fee $300.00 (10 students only)

Dates- Tuesday 5th August till 9th September (still to be confirmed)
