NEW ONLINE WORKSHOP! Take 1 or more sessions with Wendy from the comfort of your own home!

A reader will be hired to work opposite each student! 

Wendy Faraone is an influential TV and Film Director whose most well known for her work on the Disney and Nickelodeon channels. If you have studied with Wendy in the past at ACANY, you more than likely learned comedic acting technique for sitcoms. 

However, it is imperative that actors also begin to learn dramatic acting technique as well! Wendy states, “Technically all of my shows are hybrids of comedy and drama. Take a look at JUST ROLL WITH IT! There’s a ton of dramatic shots in that show!” 

Dramatic acting is much more understated than comedic acting. 

Learn the art of dramatic acting from one of the industry’s most in-demand professionals, Wendy Faraone!

Focus of Class:
• Create a believable character for a naturalistic performance
• Develop the tools needed for single camera dramatic acting, such as: playing naturally in your eyes and focusing on subtext, voice and relationship
• Work on grounding and truth-telling
• Showbiz Q&A
