Improvisations are used to build techniques. This is a great way to learn acting skills in a fun way. These exercises act as a guide to help the actor find truthful stage behavior and confidence through concentration. Since these exercises help the actor "BE IN THE MOMENT" they automatically enhance auditioning skills. Included are sensory, vocal and object exercises to broaden the imagination. Not only are they useful to actors but also to those in the business world, to enhance job performance, relationships and every aspect of life.

Scene Study / Performance Class
(Intermediate / Advanced) (Prerequisite – Basic Acting)
In this class, the focus is on relating the techniques acquired in BASIC ACTING to others on stage, by working on Scenes and Monologues. With technique, the actor has the security of knowing that when you get it right, you can do it again. It is your craft “Tool Kit”. Those students who excel in the Scene Work, will be invited to participate in our next "Works In Progress" SHOWCASE PRODUCTION. Acting roles are assigned from various plays. Actors are required to prepare for the role with the techniques they have learned. They will not only research and explore the role but, by using their technique, they will learn how to become their own directors as well. The students perform at our studio and at various other events at least three times a year as a member of the PANARO ACADEMY OF DRAMATIC ARTS. In addition to this class, students are urged to participate in the Improvisation & Theatre Games Class to round out their instrument.
