At Orientation, the following areas of work will be covered to prepare you for your first acting class:
1. RELAXATION WORK: Lecture/Demonstration. Students will be taken through the process step by step, with the teacher explaining how relaxation exercises are to be done and why they are important.
2. SENSORY WORK: A short description and explanation of the sensory exercises, with a brief demonstration of how the exercises are to be worked on at home. The student will be instructed to prepare the first exercise for his/her first acting class.
3. SCENE WORK: Students will be given the Simple Scene List and will be guided to start looking for scenes they would like to work on for class.
