Online Scene Study
For students at all levels – especially those who miss scene work in this time of isolation! Some people worry that scene study cannot be done effectively online, but it can, and this course was designed with distance learning in mind. Students will be paired according to experience level, and will receive feedback appropriate to their own stage of development. Rehearsal via videoconference outside of class time will be required.
