The Intensive acting class at Centre for the Arts is designed for you to progress beyond what you thought possible and to do so in a short period of time. Over four weeks this November, working fifteen days in the month and six hours each day, you’ll work with a small handful of like-minded actors to develop your skills in working effectively – and successfully – in front of the camera.
The best work is often the result of an intense and in depth period of concentrated effort.
John Boylan is a Toronto-based teacher, acting coach, mentor, actor and founder of Toronto’s Centre for the Arts. He offers a number of acting classes focused on acting for camera as well as private coaching and mentoring.
Definitions is the title of new written work I’m publishing along with Tips & Thoughts. These publications give expression in writing to what is done in my classes.
Definitions was proposed by Camille Stopps as she was thinking on some recent discussion we had in a Mentor session. It hit her that there are key ideas in our work manifested in certain words and that to look at the actual definition of those key words was important -- especially in this day of disinformation.
Following the definition will be a short note explaining how this idea comes up in our work.
All definitions will be taken from the Oxford English Dictionary.
Let’s begin our Definitions publications with the word definitions itself:
An exact statement or description of the nature, scope, or meaning of something.
‘our definition of what constitutes poetry’
