Part-Time classes offer students the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals and refine their skills in a professionally rigorous and supportive environment. Nothing is more important to us than the health & safety of our community. While we must stay home in the wake of COVID-19, it doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected and keep honing our craft! Thanks to a team of endlessly innovative and resourceful individuals, we’ve transitioned all of our part-time programs to the virtual platform Zoom, as well as created new part-time virtual classes for beginners and professional actors!

Technique Lab II

Advanced Scene Study in 8 weeks building upon the skills developed in Technique Lab I (LVL I). Actors in this advanced technique class will expand their understanding and implementation of the Atlantic Technique by taking a deep dive into longer scene work and play analysis. Actors will work to strengthen their relationship to a play through extensive analytic work designed to bring greater specificity to their choices. Focus will be on integrating analytic skills with an emphasis on moment-to-moment stamina, and working with the teachers as a director. Outside rehearsal time is required between the weekly classes.

Pre-Requisite: Successful completion of LVL I, Summer Intensive, or Spring Comprehensive, and a teacher recommendation required.

Technique Lab III

This summer, this six-week class will focus on polishing skills gained in Technique Lab I and Technique Lab II by expanding their application to monologues and film/tv material.

During the first 7 meetings actors work on monologue material with faculty member Karen Kohlhaas – choosing pieces that suit them for auditions.  They apply the analytical skills they’ve gained in previous Atlantic technique classes and fully block the material, making it audience-ready.   This portion culminates in a workshop performance open to guests of the class.

The next 5 meetings look at the technique and its application to film and television material led by faculty member Jen Rau. Actors work on scenes written for the screen to develop skills that prepare them to audition and work in the film/tv industry.

Outside rehearsal time is required between the weekly classes. The class is kept to an intimate size to maximize individual attention. Pre-Requisite: Successful completion of LVL II and teacher recommendation required. Now remote via the zoom platform.

Spring 2021 dates TBA

Graduates who have successfully completed all 3 levels of Technique Labs and have a strong teacher recommendation are eligible for an exclusive audition opportunity for a panel of Atlantic Theater Company Artistic staff.
