What is the difference between an acting class and an acting lab?



In a class, the instructor generally views material that you have worked on with your partner outside of class, then gives their notes and observations and has you repeat the work. As a rule, there can be as many as 30-40 actors in the group and you actually are on your feet working once or perhaps twice a month (perhaps).​

 

 

A lab is just that: A place for hands-on work to try to come up with solutions for the various acting problems that are in every scene. These solutions more often than not are in the text. I help actors learn how to read a script or screenplay with the writer’s intention in mind, enabling them to recognize where the writer wants them to make a choice. I keep my lab sizes small (never more than 16 actors in a group) and everyone works in every lab.
