In this hybrid acting class you will experience both Virtual Performance opportunities and In Person sessions. In the first 3 weeks Leslie will share how to powerfully audition and self tape tape from home, as well as discuss ways to prep and perform your work confidently via zoom. The last 3 sessions will be in person and help to continue to build your foundation of acting skills. We will be diving into working the actors instrument, script analysis, and learn how to connect and authentically bring yourself to the work.
