About the Instructor
Instructor Lara Morton has been teaching and directing educational theatre for 25 years, and is an expert at breaking young actors of amateurish performance habits, largely using improvisational training techniques.
About the Instruction
The instructional approaches of FOCUS Teen Improv applies equally to scripted acting. Benefits include (but are not limited to): thinking on your feet, making quick decisions, collaboration/teamwork, saying “Yes!” to unexpected situations “and” adding information to build a story. The focus is on process rather than outcome, facing fears/nerves, taking risks and responding confidently when new things are thrown at you.
