Uta Hagen Technique
“The class was just the deep dive I needed into acting technique and practice.''
Students work through the 10 acting exercises created by famed actress and teacher Uta Hagen, whose students included such diverse actors as Al Pacino, Whoopi Goldberg, and Matthew Broderick. No experience with Hagen's approach is required, but students who have already encountered Hagen's ideas are welcome and will be challenged to go deeper. These exercises are beneficial for actors at any level, as they help establish a firm foundation of acting as well as serve as a valuable "workout" for more advanced actors.
