at our offices at Tabernacle Baptist Church
(the corner of Grove and Meadow—enter the back alley and look for the signs)
It's the bane of the actor: characters are so often required to experience emotional extremes that are hard for the actor to turn on—and often much harder to turn off. Alba Emoting, developed by neuroscientist Dr. Susana Bloch, is a technique that uses breathing and body control to help achieve a specific emotional state. Just as importantly, it includes tools for shaking the extreme emotion off, so your angry character doesn't have to come home with you. Alba Emoting is the safest way to approach emotional extremes and clarifies the emotional location the actor is embracing. It's the perfect technique for those who believe acting should be therapeutic, but not require therapy! Age 15+. The cost is a mere $10.00!
Instructor Julie Phillips has worked as an actor in New York, Minneapolis, and North Carolina. Holding a BA from North Central University, she first approached Alba Emoting as a graduate student at VCU, where she currently teaches acting to BFA Performance majors.
