Acting II is an intermediate level acting course that delves more intensely into scene work, and builds upon the basic skills acquired in Intro to Acting. The curriculum focuses primarily on the foundations of Stanislavski's Method, but also emphasizes two offshoots of his concepts - the distinctive acting styles of both Stella Adler and Sanford Meisner. By concentrating on objectives, given circumstances, sensory work, affective memories, characterization, and moment-to-moment work, students will acquire the discipline and framework necessary to create a theatrical performance.
