Step I: Intro to Acting with Andrew McGinn, Stefan Enriquez or Meg McLynn

At Freehold, we believe that acting is a process that can be learned and practiced by anyone at any age.   In the Intro class, you develop fundamental acting tools:  playing an action, living truthfully in imaginary circumstances, and working with a partner.  No matter your experience, you learn acting in an exciting and safe environment.  This is the first class in our three-step acting progression, introducing you to a vocabulary and approach that will be the basis of Step II: Acting with Text and Step III: Basic Scene Study.
