What you will learn in Austin Texas acting classes at the DuPuy Acting Studio:

Students will be learning an acting process created by master acting coach  Matthew Harrison of The Actor’s Foundry in Vancouver. To watch an introduction to The Actor’s Foundry technique, please view: The Life Triangle video.

Additionally, all acting classes start with script analysis, which includes:

-Identifying theme

-Finding the components of the story

-Analyzing story structure

-Realizations and decisions

-Point and counterpoint

-Writing a character statement

Next, emotional exercises help the actor find their core emotional truth. They also find the core emotional truth of the character they are playing.

Our classes also incorporate focus exercises that help actors become charismatic. The goal of the exercises is to affect change in one another and the audience. In the picture below, Sarah and Jason are doing the Sound and Movement exercise.

What people are saying about our Austin Texas Acting Classes:

“I had acted in various projects before taking Amber’s class, but I never felt like I gave myself fully to them. I felt like my ‘process’ was ephemeral (if I used it), or I went with my initial surface level thoughts about how the scene(s) should go.  Through Amber’s warmth and wealth of knowledge, I’ve learned how to work and how to contribute using the tools she’s passed on to me. I feel confident in my ability now to explore using my creativity, using the craft I’ve learned and will continue to learn through these classes.” – Tim Ashby
