CAN ACTING BE TAUGHT? YES.... Acting can be taught. The essential qualities that one needs are passion, determination and perseverance.
So what is this quality, this element, this thing which makes an actor a good actor? To address this question we must ask the same question of Theater. What is the essential quality which makes theater -- Good Theater? We at Kids Act LA Acting Institute believe this quality to be The Immediacy of the Present Moment. All good acting aspires to this principle. Regardless of the play's content, style or direction, the only individual who can apply this principle is The Actor. The actor's ability to execute this is independent of the written material. The Immediacy of the Present Moment can only come from the actor. This ability to live in the present moment is the most important and fundamental quality that is the foundation, the cornerstone of all good acting.
This ability, to live in the present moment, can be taught. To quote Jerzy Grotowski (The famous Polish teacher/director)
"Theatre is a place where one man comes out to meet another, without playing any role he is what he is, complete in himself -- He only wants to meet."
It is in this MEETING between two human beings where an actor encounters The Present Moment.
In the same way that a pianist has his instrument - The Piano - an actor also has his instrument. The Actor's instrument is his BODY. Within the BODY lie the actor's 'tools' which he utilizes in the effort to create the life of a human being - a "Character". What are the actor's tools? The actor's tools are his WILL, IMAGINATION and his EMOTIONS. These elements are the foundation of the actor's craft. Through a methodical practice of specific acting exercises, in a class environment, these elements are developed and strengthened as they eventually lead to the awakening of the creative capacities within the actor.
