DRA 130 - Acting I


3 credits
Acting I offers energetic, in-class activities which are designed to develop concentration, encourage creativity, and forge connections to classmates through character-driven interactions. It introduces students to the fundamental training components of acting through participation in a variety of creative exercises perfect for both budding performers and for students who have never been onstage - or who might not even plan to be onstage someday. This course helps students build confidence in their communication skills while also enabling them to think critically, consider the viewpoints of others, and effectively express themselves, all of which will benefit them in the classroom, in life, and in the workforce. Acting I offers minimal lecture and few written assignments, focusing instead on active, hands-on daily exercises on techniques ranging from improvisation and movement to creative exercises and physical centering techniques. The course culminates in scene work which teaches students to believe in the actions of a character. It is the recommended prerequisite for Acting II.
