Taught by Yohance Myles

$100 per month

The Art of Being – A new adult acting class taught by acclaimed stage and film actor Yohance Myles.

This class is designed for adults who want an ongoing theatre/Film class with an industry professional. This class will focus on theatre/Film exercises designed to engage the voice and body, stimulate creativity, promote self- awareness, and teach the fundamental building blocks of acting.

The “Art of Being” technique is an acting based training that focuses not only on performance but a centered awareness of self and creativity. This style of technique and training encompasses a unique exploration of external development while enhancing the authentic discovery of interpersonal transformation.

Exercises in this class will explore:
Finding a Character’s objective
Identifying a Character’s obstacle
Executing Tactics
Exploring/utilizing what’s in the room
How to friend request the “camera”
Defining the authentic “You”

This class will be great for adults that have a desire to give acting a try, or any experienced actor looking to improve or refresh their technique!
