Scene Study Acting classes with Serena Belsby

A heads-up to all actors:

Local screenwriter/actress Serena Belsby is offering acting classes in May, Wednesday nights from 6-9pm, after holding a successful series of classes in March.

The class will be focused on scene study, with relaxation and sensory work exercises before each scene--a very method approach. It's ideal for area actors who want to work on delving in their characters, and those who want to hone their emotional intelligence when it comes to acting.

Belsby is a method-trained actress who studied with students of Lee Strasberg, an influential proponent of Method Acting. She's "been blessed to study with the very best," having been coached and directed in a one-woman show by Penny Allen. Allen has coached top talents Al Pacino, Harvey Keitel, Sean Penn, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Ben Chaplin, Embeth Davitz and others. "She really is a legend," says Belsby.

The cost for this May class is just $72. Since space is limited, Belsby is asking for a 50% deposit to secure a spot. The class will be either in Browne's Addition or on the South Hill.
