Reciting with Steve Sneed
Reciting with Steve Sneed

Join teaching artist Steve Sneed and recite two pieces of poetry and monologues from plays "Streetlife" and "Peer Pressure," including exercises and examples of performers' choices when giving a cold reading or presentation. This lesson builds off of the warm-up techniques used in Mr. Sneed's prior video, The Actor's Warmup, and is great for learners of all ages, particularly youth grades 9-12.
