Virtual Classes: The Actor's Art of Communication and Persuasion (4 sessions)
Hone your public speaking, your day-to-day communications , and especially those critical moments of persuasion using theater techniques. Gain insights, philosophies, and tools on the art and science of verbal communication from actor Paul Morella (Theater J’s BROKEN GLASS). Morella, a master storyteller, trial advocacy consultant, and faculty member at American University’s Washington College of Law, focuses on how to successfully convey ideas and emotions through language, voice, and physicality in order to communicate more effectively in professional and personal life, whether you are speaking to a single colleague, a group of clients, or at a major presentation. There will be opportunities for students to bring material to present or work on, if they wish.
This is not an acting class; no acting experience is required.
