 Performing Arts Foundation Program

Basic training in the three disciplines of
acting, movement and voice

Basic training in the disciplines of acting, movement, and voice forms the foundational trinity of skills essential for aspiring performers. Under the expert guidance of professional Broadway performer and Ballroom Dancer Victoria Regan, her comprehensive 9-week course will provide the structured and intensive groundwork to empower actors to breathe life into roles and captivate audiences on stage and screen.

Each discipline contributes uniquely to the holistic development of an actor, blending the physical, emotional, and vocal facets of expression into a seamless performance. Acting teaches the art of embodying characters and narratives with authenticity and depth, while movement cultivates the body’s ability to communicate through gesture, posture, and spatial awareness. Voice training enhances vocal range, clarity, and resonance, enabling actors to project emotions and convey meaning effectively.

Audition Techniques
The importance of material and repertoire choice is emphasized; students are taught to choose songs and monologues that explore character, vocal exploration, movement, dramatic inflection, internalization and ownership.

By discussing the basic techniques of staging, students develop a vocabulary necessary to engage in dialogue with others well-versed in Theatrical Arts. Students build an understanding of terms and relative positions; movement, motivation, and follow-through; and the movement theories that allow them to powerfully stage a performance to the best of their abilities.

Development of Stage Characters
Characterization is a fundamental of stage performance. Students study the exploration of personality, attitude, quirks, movement, and relationships of a character using improvisation and traditional acting exercises. Literary script analysis is also covered.

Music and Dialogue Preparation
By studying music theory and vocal techniques, students begin to build the confidence and skills needed to perform with conviction. Exercises encourage students to integrate elements of character development and staging, as well as the expression of character through text and music to develop a performance that suits them well. Memorization is a key element in Music and Dialogue Preparation.
