After debuting in the Fall as part of Gibney's Weekend Workshop series, Charlotte's Acting for Dancers technique,Moving into Language, will be presented as a weekly drop-in class starting on Feb 16th, 2021.
Moving Into Language is an approach to acting created specifically for trained dancers; taking what they know & understand so deeply about their bodies and using that as the foundation for their acting explorations. It encompasses the essential first steps of the acting process, taking dancers through a period of physically-driven exploration and invention, then into a conscious process of selection and refinement, and back into a state of discovery as unconscious reactions/feelings arise at the time of performance.
