ACTING
Part I : February 17 – 19, 2006
Part II : February 24 – 26, 2006
There are essentially two kinds of performances:
truthful and contrived. The consummate actor is always
truthful in the execution of his/her craft and,
therefore, not acting.

These Weekend Workshops offer a completely eclectic,
practical, and intensive acting boot camp where we
will introduce and apply the most practical aspects of
the different and prevailing methods, techniques and
schools of thought in acting for film, television and
theatre today. Elementary but indispensable notions of
industry protocol, practices and discipline are also
discussed as a compliment to the development of the
professional actor.

of skill or experience level.
Part II – For recurring students who have taken a
weekend workshop or on-going class before
Fridays 6 to 10 pm. / Saturdays 1 to 6 pm. / Sundays

Ave., Suite C-105. Located in Building C of the Penn
Field Complex, between 290 East Highway (W. Ben White
Blvd.) and Oltorff St. The direct entrance to the

Carapetyan as its new music director in July 2005. The
