The Fall Semester

The first semester concentrates on the foundational work of the Atlantic Technique. Emphasizing script analysis, playing an action truthfully, and working moment to moment, students learn the basics of vocal production, speech and movement technique, while taking work habits to a higher professional level.

The Spring Semester

The second semester solidifies the students’ understanding of script analysis and encourages integration of emerging skills through the in-class performance of  semester-long rehearsal projects. Students also embark on an exploration of a structured improvisational character study which they write, research and perform. This semester culminates in an informal workshop performance open to friends and family.

The Summer Semester

The last semester challenges students to apply their training under the pressures of performance. Work includes advanced scene study, an ensemble performance project and preparation for the business.

Core Classes Include

Script Analysis, Moment Lab, Performance Technique, Voice, Speech, Movement, Production, Business, and Casting.
