TAPS 124D: Acting for Non-Majors

This is a non-major studio class designed to introduce fundamental acting techniques and to provide performers with foundational exercises upon which to build an ever more sophisticated sense for the handling of the stage with the use of the Viewpoints Training system. The Viewpoints Training philosophy is designed to develop the actor's most valuable'and perhaps most elusive tools: The Body as our essential instrument, relaxation, spontaneity, and the ensemble. The course will approach the development of performance skills, relaxation techniques, theater games, ensemble building, and beginning improvisational exercises, while fostering a dramatic sense of play and willingness to take risks that is the essence of free and powerful performance.
