Tom Diamond returns to lead one of our most popular courses, suitable for absolute beginners or more-experienced actors who want to get back to the basics.
Many people have the passion to act, but without the craft to support this desire, they just fly by the seat of their pants. This exhilarating course focuses on learning the underlying principles and techniques of the craft of acting: imagination, observation, concentration, relaxation, intellect, communication, and authenticity.
Beginning with solo work, progressing to improvisation, and into the beginning of scene study and script analysis—the emphasis of this course is the Actor’s Process, and not the performance results.
"Tom Diamond was an exemplary teacher, committed to helping each of us bring out our best," said one past participant. "He was extremely well-prepared, and has such an impressive range of experience to share. His energy was incredible. I particularly appreciated the fact that he took the time to address each of us individually and knew just exactly how to "meet us where we were at" and help us move forward from there."
