Darlo Drama's beginners acting class, Level Two course is an investigation into naturalistic acting & drama techniques that will make your performances more convincing. These techniques will enable you to interpret dialogue, making the most of your script in order to complement your fellow performers on stage as well as engage your audience. The development of characters is also explored during classes.
Similar to our Level One beginners course the first few weeks of Level Two are spent exploring theatre and acting techniques through the use of drama games and improvisation exercises. Once the scripts are handed out that’s when it gets interesting as you will be working with a scene partner and find out what happens on stage when someone talks back!
Level Two course overview
Following on from Level One, classes start gently, allowing a safe place for students to PLAY and EXPLORE with fun games, trust exercises and improvisation. As time goes on, your group will begin to get more COMFORTABLE, RELAXED and SPONTANEOUS. You will find confidence in self expression, learning techniques to assist with presenting in front of a group, working through “stage fright” and connecting to an audience while developing your communication skills.
Our expert teachers will take your new found confidence and creativity and show you how to apply acting techniques and exercises to the performance of a monologue. You will work on a monologue script, develop a character, learn voice projection and take direction.
Through the building of deeper, more authentic approaches to connecting to others and embracing a spirit of bravery and generosity will help you to find a greater sense of personal leadership and confidence through acting.
By the end of the course, you will be ready to perform on the Darlo Drama Theatre stage…it sounds daunting we know – but trust us, we are with you every step of the way! We encourage you to invite family and friends to join in celebrating your awesome achievements in a wonderfully supportive environment. And we guarantee that you will love it - there is nothing quite like the buzz of the audience’s applause when you are under the stage lights!
