At Neptune Theatre School we pride ourselves on process based learning, with programs focused on building skills rather than simply “putting on a show”. Learning from qualified instructors - who also happen to be professional actors and leaders in Halifax’s artistic community - students will obtain the best theatre training in the city.

L.A. Technique - Level 1

with Kirstin Howell

3 sessions

Mondays: April 22, 29, May 6


Regular: $210.00

Artist / Underwaged: $178.50

The L.A. Technique is an applicable and repeatable system of acting which has been created by Kirstin Howell, based on the work she learned in Los Angeles. The Technique is a well- rounded way of approaching the craft of acting, preparing one’s self to be a ‘working actor’, and making one’s self as hireable as possible. This fun and engaging three week course will cover the basics of the LA Technique. We will cover marketing strategies such as headshots, resumés, creating your ‘hit’, and more, as well as learning how to build character through the use of improv and mining the script. Although the L.A. technique can be applied to any medium, we will be focusing on film and television sides for this course. 
All levels of experience are welcome!
