Movement for Actors is an introductory workshop that helps raise performers’ awareness of the physical body and movement in hopes of strengthening character creation and enabling freedom of expression.


Andrew G. Cooper, the Artistic Producer of Chimera Theatre and an award-winning dance instructor and choreographer, leads this three hour workshop and will teach you the fundamentals of movement in regards to acting. During the class, you will first develop a sense of your own body then begin exploring movement through imagery, language and sensation. The workshop will focus on giving each participant a richer understanding of how their body and physicality can be used to its fullest potential. Actors will work both individually and in groups to learn about spatial relationships, balance, physical communication, animal qualities, dance and physical theatre. No prior experience is necessary. Everyone is welcome to come out, learn and gain an appreciation for movement!


Workshop is recommended for ages 12 and up. Cost is $30 per participant.

Please note that space is limited and we suggest registering as soon as possible.
