As a student of acting at Popovsky Performing Arts Studio, you will grow as a well-rounded performer. The studio offers a variety of classes allowing you to explore all that acting has to offer. Through exercises such as improvisation, scene work, and monologue study you will develop and refine those skills needed to be successful on stage. Regardless of which class is taken, you will:

  1. Learn to use the whole body to fully express character and emotion…
  2. Develop the ability to make bold and interesting choices…
  3. Make true and clear emotional connections…
  4. Think quickly on your feet…
  5. and much more!

All of these tools allow you, as an actor, to connect with the essential emotional truth of a situation, scene, or character… the ultimate goal in acting.
