Scene-1 is excited to announce Erica Arvold will teach Total Prep Fusion for Youth on Sundary, September 29th in Alexandria, VA from 10:30 until 5:30 pm (with lunch break)

Total Prep Fusion for Youth is a 6-hour intensive providing young actors personal, in-depth instruction and practical, professional advice on the preparation process.  This class combines Arvold Education’s core curriculum Total Prep 1 and Total Prep 2. Master teacher Erica Arvold guides actors using the Arvold-Warner 10-step preparation checklist for creating character for film and television.  This multi-layered, progressive study is for intermediate youth actors ages 12 to 18. The Arvold-Warner approach is a synthesis of the major 20th century acting methods, with a focus on supporting and developing each individual's personal practice while also expanding their craft toolkit. Grounded in the detailed study of a scene, actors explore efficient, effective techniques for creating action-based characters for the audition as well as the set.

Features of the class include:

  • Script analysis

  • Sensory work

  • In-character thinking

  • Developing relationships

  • On-camera practice

  • Individualized coaching
