Group Acting classes are primarily spoken dialogue, acting, and movement. Scenes are not acted through song as in Musical Theatre, however students learn to create physical and vocal response to text.
It is designed to enable learners to develop a range of skills. Students perform one scene or sequence of scenes from memory. They attempt to demonstrate a sound understanding of the material, leading to an imaginative interpretation in which there is application of appropriate technical skills. At Invisible Crown, our training also develops the 5 attributes of CONFIDENCE.
