These sessions will lay the foundation of the actor's craft and features exercises and techniques to help you prepare to enter into the mind and body of a character. It will build on the foundation of basic acting methods. It will help the actor unlock your body as well as your mind and open them to feelings and sensations which you can draw on when needed.
