LEVEL 2 SHURTLEFF TO SCENE

 

Building upon the work you did in Level 1, our ASC Level 2 course delves deeper into Shurtleff’s Guideposts, allowing you to: further develop your process, strengthen your partner connection, and increase your specificity. In this course, you will continue improving upon your script analysis skills as you work to clarify your choices and develop a more personal connection with the text. Emphasis will be placed on the application and transition from bookwork into scene work. In this course you will further learn to:

  • Appropriately choose and apply action verbs

  • Easily and effectively find beats

  • Further develop and specify your internal monologue 

  • Incorporate discoveries in order to fully act on impulse

Required: In order to move forward to Level 3: Scene Study, you are required to attend Week 6 (Script Analysis).

Pre-Requisite: Level 1 or equivalent training and a placement audition. 

 

In the event of inclement winter weather, your class will move to Zoom. ASC staff will make the decision by 3 pm the day of class and send you a Zoom link via email and text.

Tuition: $425

— Olivia Wood

"I came to Acting Studio Chicago with zero experience in the craft, just a desire to have fun and have a new experience. ASC delivered on that and more; the people in my class with me were great, and the teacher - Christina Gorman - was just fantastic. Beyond fantastic. Her enthusiasm, positive attitude, real talk when feedback was needed and authenticity make her an incredible teacher, and no doubt a wonderful actress. I can't wait to take another class!!"
