BritStar Acting Games with Andrei Aradits, grades 5-8 (winter 2017)

BritStar: Acting games

Acting is not a talent, it's a skill.  The good thing is that any skill can be taught and learned. Anybody with a little intuition, a little imagination and a bit of curiosity can learn how to act. Quality acting is nothing more than the art of behaving naturally in imaginary situations.

Come and learn the basic instruments of acting, improvisation and how to have total control over your emotions. Don't think that acting is 'lying' or 'deceiving' the public - on the contrary, the most important thing for an actor is to be able to be as honest as possible. Take part in BritStar and fall in love with acting.
