ZBS PRESENTS: Transforming your Fears through Acting

Mar 23-27, 2020
Mon – Fri, 9am – 12pm (Kids Conservatory)
Mon- Fri, 1pm – 4pm (Teen Conservatory)

Over the course of the next week, we will become students of fear—understand it as physical and psychological energy, and see how we as actors can transform it through the creative process.  Each day a new fear (ie fear of failure, rejection, being alone, etc) will be studied, embodied and transformed through the acting process.  What was once frightening will become liberating, as each actor’s courage and presence grows.

The simple fact is this.  Fear cannot be ignored—but it can be studied, felt, and transformed into exponential growth.  Take this time to grow beyond your limitations, expand your craft and talent, and stay sane, connected and courageous in these very strange times.  Plus, you’ll have a lot of fun with some kind, brilliant and funny teachers that have an uncanny ability to make even the scariest times, feel safe.

Platform:

We will be using a videoconferencing app, ‘Zoom’ which is incredibly user-friendly, and very conducive to online acting training! 

Pricing:

$425 for the one-week conservatory for ZBS Members; $500 for Non-Members.

ZBS PRESENTS: A Student of Life!

Mar 30 – Apr 03, 2020
Mon – Fri, 9am – 12 pm (Kids Conservatory)
Mon – Fri, 1pm – 4pm (Teens Conservatory)

In our lives as aspiring professional actors in Hollywood, we are always under incredible pressure to perform at the highest levels with little to no time.  Our training also often feels that pressure.  I need to take X class because it meets Y need, and my agent is sending me out for Y!  Take this week to broaden your skills and imagination with classes that open an actor’s mind, and adds depth and texture to their talent.  

Classes such as intro to Shakespeare, meditation and wellness for the actor, writing your own solo show, history of great plays and live vocal television auditioning are amongst the ideas the teachers are tossing around.  

This week will stretch everyone in every direction, so perfectionism is not allowed! Time to have fun exploring things you never thought you would, or always wanted to!
