Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: act in dramatic material, which demands style, regional speech, specific character elements, and historical accuracy; develop a kinesthetic awareness of themselves and a partner in scenework; describe the scale for on-camera and the difference between "inside out" and "outside in"; connect vocal and physical exercises to character development and text work; lead a physical and vocal warm-up; create honest and compelling characters who have different vocal and physical traits; and develop a multi-facted vocal skill set to use when approaching character work.

Building on previous instruction, students explore Standard American Pronunciation and other regionalisms in the context of style and its ramifications in the use of the voice and the body. Students continue with more demanding physical work designed to heighten performances. Elements of movement and dance are explored for work that requires specific character elements and/or historical accuracy. Final class sessions explore the application of voice and movement to audition texts and to live performance.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category OR in the upper division baccalaureate degree category, 2 semester hours in Theatre, Drama, Communications, or Radio and Television (6/07) (8/08) (8/14 revalidation).
