Are you an intermediate to advanced actor looking to learn more techniques to grow your skill? Then this class is for you. Michael Chekhov believed the imagination was the gateway to inspiration. As a student of Stanislavsky, Chekhov took the techniques of his teacher and extended them to engage the whole body and mind. Over the course of the session, students will be introduced to and work with the NMCA Chart, a visual representation of every technique in Chekhov’s tool belt.
Dawson is so excited to begin working with CYT Austin in their mission to bring inspiring, Christ-centered theatre to the young people in the Austin area. He credits Julie Novak for initially showing him the power of theatre and the arts, and ever since then he has committed himself to learn more about the form. Despite initially falling in love with musicals under the direction of Mrs. Novak, Dawson has since found a new love for the classic works, such as Greek theatre, Shakespeare, and Chekhov. When Dawson isn't involved in theatre, he spends his time combing the shelves at Half-Price Books, training to become a certified personal & business coach, and making digital art (including music) with his friends.
