Question by Laura H: Which acting class should I take?
I’m a junior in high school, and soon we can have to choose next year classes. We can take classes at a community college, but I don’t know which one to choose. Which class sounds the best, and will help me more in my future. I would love to become a film actress. So which one will help me with that, and could I put this on my acting resume, if I took some of these classes?
Acting I: Improvisation and Foundations
Description: This course uses lectures, discussions, and interactive exercises to learn, demonstrate, and evaluate the principles of improvisation including basic stage awareness, non-verbal communication, self-awareness, and team work. Students will work in ensemble to understand, evaluate, and use the concepts of objective, intention, and motivation. Written analyses as well as presentations may be used to demonstrate understanding of these skills and concepts.
Foundations of Acting: Stage Movement
Description: An exploration of movement and its use in developing characters constitutes the basis of this course. Movement is explored as communication, as play, and as an expression of self. An emphasis on self awareness continues to be a focus. Other focuses may include stage combat, exercise, and various types of dance.
Description: In this class, students choose a particular area of practicum study such as acting, directing, assisting a director, working on a technical crew assignment, or another major responsibility. Students research, analyze and participate in some aspect of a North Hennepin production. This course may be repeated for credit. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor
