Free to Act with Lisa Dalton

Whether it's your first or 100th acting class, discover new and expanded ways to play with imagination and your most precious artistic gifts - your voice and body.  Under the safety and guidance of Master Michael Chekhov Acting Teacher, Lisa Dalton, we will explore how to free your body, voice, and imagination from those frustrating "things" that block us from acting the moment the way you know it can be done, without ever having to disturb our personal memories.  Join the fun! Develop confidence and emotional ease with a monologue and a sense of staging with the ensemble.  Great for anyone who engages with the public. 

$180 | Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 PM | 6 weeks, beginning October 25 | Last class Dec. 6 | Evie | 18+ | Lisa Dalton
