Workshops

Steppenwolf Classes West workshops give actors a chance to work with award-winning working professionals, respected academics, and teaching artists in the Steppenwolf family, as well as guest master teachers. Workshops are typically shorter in duration than our other classes (often one or two-day intensives) and are offered only when the instructors' schedules allow them to teach. For this reason, many of our workshops are offered infrequently, and as a result, fill up very quickly due to high demand. To be notified when these workshops are offered, please join our mailing list.

Acting for the Camera

Taught by award-winning veteran director, Bethany Rooney, this workshop simulates conditions the actor faces in a real single-camera filming environment. Designed to help students feel comfort and confidence on a set, free from preoccupation with the technical and able to focus on the artistic demands of the job: staying in the moment and remaining in the scene. Students work in pairs on a filmed scene complete with marks, props, and camera, as well as receiving adjustments over multiple takes. Ms. Rooney has directed hundreds of episodes of prime-time network shows, as well as eight television movies.
