What you'll learn in this acting class:

The English as a Second Language (ESL) class combines The Barrow Group approach to acting with diction work. Vocal exercises strengthen skills in the pronunciation, intonation, and stress of American Standard dialect, while the acting work is adapted to also engage vocal work. For example, during script analysis, students explore American stress and intonation patterns so that the logic behind them becomes clear.

This class is ideal for students for whom English is not the first language, as well as for others who would like to work on American Standard pronunciation and diction.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.
