Yat Bentley Centre for Performance Vancouver

Fall 2020 - Summer 2021


Yat Method Classes (via zoom)

Term Dates: October 19th - December 7th 2020 

Fee: $240 (8 weeks) or $120 (4 weeks) 


This class provides the opportunity to create character through movement and encourages moving beyond your comfort zone to create a physicality very different to your own. 

Performers will create a unique character through weight, space, time and flow in various combinations. This class is a platform to break type-casting and is widely used by actors such as Pierce Brosnan, Cate Blanchet, Colin Firth and Anthony Hopkins.


Students work through imaginative scenarios (identifying each Inner Attitude) and solidifying a unique character and the beginnings of a one person show.
