Acting for Adults

This masterclass is curated for beginner / intermediate adult actors who want to deepen their craft of acting and enhance their stage skills.

This class explores Stanislavski physical theatre, character building, intention work, scene study, and improvisation. Students can bring monologues that they want to improve upon for audition season!

Stanislavsky system also called the Stanislavsky method, highly influential system of dramatic training developed over years of trial and error by the Russian actor, producer, and theoretician Konstantin Stanislavsky. He began with attempts to find a style of acting more appropriate to the greater realism of 20th-century drama than the histrionic acting styles of the 19th century. He never intended, however, to develop a new style of acting but rather meant to codify in teaching and performing regimens the ways in which great actors always have achieved success in their work, regardless of prevailing acting styles.

This class is geared for adults 25 and older.

Drop-in: $20

The BCLF intends to shine the spotlight on the output of the Caribbean artiste. In so doing, it hopes to empower and motivate the hidden storyteller among us to find the courage to tell his/her own story; and foster appreciation for the Caribbean tale and voice among others.”
