Acting Workshops For Beginners 18+

  • Subtitle: Semester Theater Workshops
  • Date | Place:

    September 2024 – January 2025
    Fridays 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM / Warsaw

Join our regular theatre classes for adults, where you’ll boost your courage and creativity! In an intimate group setting, we work on stage confidence and emotional expression.

Information

Idea

Acting workshops are aimed at adults who want to work on themselves – gain self-assurance and broaden expression. We learn to control emotions, practice reflexes, and creative thinking. Through body and voice training, we enhance communicativeness. We work as a group. All of this can improve the quality of our actions both on stage and in daily life. However, the workshops are also a time for fun and detachment from responsibilities. During sessions, we don’t focus solely on performing scenes. The main goal of acting workshops is to exercise free expression – enabling participants to “step out of their comfort zone,” which means breaking routine and exploring new emotions and states that are often blocked in everyday life.

Program

We try to tailor sessions to the needs of participants. The workshops focus on various aspects of acting. The program includes:

• Energetic warm-ups and theatre games, aimed at group integration, boosting participant confidence, and gaining self-awareness.
