An advanced workshop, where individual programs are custom designed to help each actor breakthrough any limitation to achieve maximum freedom and power.  When breakthroughs happen, the experience is often transformational.

Prior to the first class, participants discuss and agree to their special focus for the term.  Through individually assigned exercises, scenes and monologues, actors focus on specific areas of need which, for example, might include the elimination of habit patterns, expansion of vocal, physical or emotional resources, acquisition of missing craft tools, organic, consistent performance, aspects of The Audition, etc.  When a limiting acting issue is solved, a new and higher level of work is achieved.  What’s the issue holding you back?  Where do you need the most work?

N.B. All courses progress in a logical and consecutive sequence. Furthermore, students are frequently turned away once the maximum number of participants has been reached. For these reasons, students who begin the session agree to complete the session and are finally responsible for the session if they attend the first session.
