About the Instructor
Sharon Laughlin, a professional actress will be teaching the class. Sharon graduated from the University of Washington in Drama and went directly to New York where she worked in theatre for 30 years. Shortly after arriving in NYC she began studying with Neils Miller who taught an acting technique based on the teachings of Francois Delsarte.
The Delsarte Technique: The overarching idea could be summed up by what he calls “The Law of Correspondence.” which states that: “to each spiritual function responds a function of the body; and to each large movement of the body corresponds a spiritual act.” ‘Spiritual,’ in this context meaning intellectual or emotional movement. He observed in detail how energy and intention are expressed through the body via gesture and voice – the only tools an actor has to communicate with the audience.
Sharon worked on and off Broadway, did national tours and Regional Theater such as Oregon Shakespeare Festival – Portland Center Stage, Stamford Theatre Works, Cleveland Playhouse, American Shakespeare Festival, Center Stage in Baltimore and many more.
