Have you ever wondered what it would be like to act on stage or on television or film? The syracuse Community Center located at 310 N. Huntington St., Syracuse, will be hosting a course to teach the basics of acting.
The courses will be taught from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, from Sept. 18 to Oct. 16. Classes will be available to students ages 16 and older and will focus on the basics of on-screen and off-screen acting. Through this class, participants will explore scripted materials as well as explore some improv based exercises to help explore characters and relationships to the script. The class will require some light homework as well as pairing up with others in the class to perform certain scenes. A final showcase on the last day will round out the series. No experiences is necessary to get involved with the class.
