MIME ACTING & MIME CLASS
What it is
Mime acting is a style that is seeped in history and tradition and is much like learning the precision and exercises of ballet, tai chi or some other highly physical discipline. Taking a class will give you the opportunity to learn specialized movement skills, physicalization of emotion and dramatic expression as well as stylization techniques and illusion work. The content of what you would learn in a mime class is dependent upon which school you choose to go to or what teacher you choose to train under.
Some popular styles are those belonging to Marcel Marceau, the Decroux technique, Niedzialkowski Technique and Lecoq. They all vary from style to style but generally, a class in mime will introduce you to the fundamentals of the art form, its history and how it relates to today’s theatre.
For whom is it for and what are the benefits?
The commitment to miming and taking mime classes can mean a commitment to lifetime study; such is the complexity and degree of difficulty of this art form. You cannot become a master of mime in 2 years…it takes a lot longer! However, you don’t have to want to become a master of mime to take classes. In fact, taking entry level classes in mime can help an actor greatly in how they use and relate to their body on stage, how they express themselves as a character and how they can outwardly manifest the inner life of a character without even having to speak. So much of what we do in life is conveyed through body language and the way that we react physically to people, emotions and situations, so taking classes in mime will really give you the opportunity to study this and play around with it in a learning environment. All of it will contribute towards making you a more well-rounded, specific and truthful actor.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
