Notecrd from SL Shakespear Company

 


VER. 1.1]
SL Shakepeare Company Academy of Performing Arts
==========
SL Shakespeare is proud to present starting in the Fall of 2008, our academy of Performing Arts. Taught by working Real Life actors who are also involved in the world of theatre and performing inside Second Life, our classes aim to teach students the acting skills applicable in both Second Life and Real Life. We will also be offering courses on technical aspects of production for Second Life.

SLSC is interested in nurturing actors from across the globe who may otherwise not have the opportunity to study acting in their home towns but wishes to do so inside Second Life. We are interested in aiding individuals with a passion for the theatrical arts to become high quality performers who can compete with their Real Life peers. Second Life is not second rate, and we believe quality begins with proper training.

SLSC Academy of Performing Arts was created by Enniv Zarf with the SL Shakespeare Company. Enniv Zarf was the voice director of both Mini Productions of Hamlet, the director of the Staged Reading Series of Twelfth Night in Second Life as well as a solo freestyle improv pianist. He is also currently a working actor in Los Angeles. He has worked as a principal actor/voice-over talent in commercials for MacDonalds, Verizon, Wal-Mart, Honda, PG&E, Hyundai, Washington Mutual and others. He has appeared as a principal actor on NBC's Scrubs and as a voice actor in the 2008 blockbuster Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. He has been a recurring guest host as a movie critic on AM1430 in Los Angeles. He is currently a teacher and on the board of directors at Active Actors Inc. (http://activeactorsinc.org) in Los Angeles. He also has a Bachelor of Music from the University of Southern California in Piano Performance with minors in both theatre and musical theatre and a Master of Music there in Music Composition.

All our courses are taught in a closed environment. The location will be made available only to the students who are in the course. Auditing of any course will only be allowed on a case by case basis. One Avatar will only be allowed a maximum of one audit session. We believe in providing a private environment that will nurture the growth of our students.
