Mondays through July 30: [A]n 8-week acting class based on the principles found in Uta Hagen’s landmark book Respect for Acting. Davis studied with Ms. Hagen in New York City for seven years. The class is a scene study class, so students will be expected to work on material with other actors. The class is founded on Ms. Hagen’s ‘Basic Object Exercises,’ so students can work with these exercises on weeks when not doing scene work.
