Nick’s class utilizes a fast-paced floor warmup set to contemporary music to warm the body, increase flexibility, and encourage breath to release tension. General focus on how to use the body as a tool in your acting, develop an awareness of body and space and a process by which that body can truly live and be affected by given circumstances, objectives, and partner. His class introduces the body to physical-based storytelling and the creation of original work. Key teaching technique: animal physicality is used to instill confidence in the body and encourages students to make choices, allow impulses to run free, and character development to flourish.
