ONGOING CLASS                                            

Serious Actors:  this is your workout!  Do you know that are you are capable of so much more but not sure how to get there?  This dynamic on-going class is geared toward actors who have already been practicing their craft and want to continue to hone their skills and find deeper ways to explore.  Each week will have a different focus and will draw from several acting schools including Uta Hagen, Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, Michael Shurtleff,  Harold Guskin, the Groundlings, Second City and more.  We’ll be working both on film and off, and explore script analysis, character development, freeing yourself from constraint, finding the core of the scene and more.  BONUS!  Each week I send out videos of your class work which are yours to keep or pass on to agents, managers, CD’s – anyone who is interested in seeing what you can bring to the table.

NEW: SCENE STUDY INTENSIVE (On-Line) – Wednesdays 12-2pm,  Oct. 12 – Nov. 2

We’ll spend 4 weeks working on 2 different scripts. The goal for this course is to do a deep dive into scene study.  This means we’re going to uncover all those beautiful possibilities we often overlook in our rush to perform or to get an audition turned in. (We’ve all been guilty of this!) Each week will have a different focus and will draw from several acting schools including Uta Hagen, Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, Michael Shurtleff,  Harold Guskin, the Groundlings, Second City and more.  We’ll find the core of the scene and leave no stone uncovered.  We’ll perform each class and record the 2nd and 4th weeks.

NEW: SCRIPT ANALYSIS INTENSIVE (On-Line) – Saturdays 10a-12p, Oct. 8 – Nov. 12

If you are a professional actor, or aspire to be one, this is your must-have course!  You need the necessary skills to break down an entire script and understand it in detail. Most classes focus on a single scene. This course will allow you to break down all the scenes for your character, understand your arc, find compelling detail to bring the scene alive and more. This kind of work is crucial for film, television or stage when your character appears multiple times (and scenes are shot out of sequence). The level of detail I share is usually only found in a university or conservatory program. 

Who: Adults and mature teens

INVESTMENT: $245
