If you anticipate any absences please talk to the office before registering.

Kurt (Naebig) has a beautiful knack for understanding how to challenge everyone’s blind spots in their scene work. He does this while creating a space that feels truly safe and fun. (Advanced Scene Study)

Kurt Naebig (Advanced Scene Study) is very good about giving feedback after each scene. He listens intently to questions and takes his time when working with each actor. He also asks the rest of the class for input on each scene, and after each turn, he asks each actor what they have learned. Each time I have finished a class with Kurt, I know I'm leaving it having grown in this craft.

Kurt creates a safe, positive, collaborative, and fun environment. By using the twelve guideposts that Kurt teaches in class, I have found so much more possibility for creation in the characters I play. Kurt knows how to take actors to the next level. What I learned here I will use in my acting career at all times."
