Future classes in Covington, Metairie, Shreveport, Baton Rouge, and Kenner
- Darling Actors,
Here is the latest schedule of classes in Louisiana through May 13th.
If you have been wishing for a weekly acting class that caters to adult
actors north of New Orleans, we are beginning a series of six classes
this Tuesday evening, April 4.
The focus of the series is on ways you can take advantage of the motion
picture business and new film studios coming into our state. We will be
paying particular attention to rapid character development since in film
you must be able to act instantly. How you do that will be practiced in
class along with other traditional acting coaching.
OTHER FUTURE CLASSES
METAIRIE - A class limited to professional actors only will start on
Monday, April 17th. This class focuses on honing your craft and
increasing your business acumen to sustain you as you climb the ladder
of show biz success. To enroll in this class, you must have prior
experience or have taken my training in the Four Steps and the Three
Stages in another class or workshop.
COVINGTON - If you're a Northshore teen aged thirteen to eighteen, learn
the craft of acting by playing theater games and doing fun exercises to
prepare you for auditions for theater or film. Public speaking training
is included to help you think on your feet and become more spontaneous.
Gain confidence and poise as you employ improvisational techniques and
learn acting in scenes with fellow classmates. This series of six
classes starts on Tuesday, April 18th, from four to six p.m.
SHREVEPORT - Three powerful workshops sponsored by the HURD are
scheduled for the weekend of April 22 and 23. On Saturday there will be
two workshops, one for the development of young film actors and one for
beginning film actors. On Sunday there will be a seven-hour intensive
for advanced work. This intensive workshop is limited. Only those who
have already learned the fundamentals in a prior class with me may
BATON ROUGE - New! Two HURD workshops for the talent in our sister city
are planned for Saturday, April 29. The workshops in our state's
capitol are for both new and experienced talent. The morning workshop
includes the fundamentals, from hitting marks and finding your key light
to how to put your best foot forward when meeting casting directors and
agents. The advanced workshop for more experienced actors will address
set etiquette, the unwritten rules of actor interaction, specifics of
acting for the camera, and how to shine when the spotlight is on you.
KENNER - On Saturday, May 13th, B & V is holding our famous beginner and
advanced workshops for kids and adults in the Metairie / Kenner area.
