The Advanced Master Class

A SPECIALIZED CLASS GIVEN BY AN EXPERT TO A GROUP OF HIGHLY TALENTED ARTISTS.

This Master Class introduces you to a whole new way of experiencing your acting practice. It is not an audition ABC, nor does it give you any tips and tricks for auditioning. Rather these 8 weeks blur the lines between your unique artistry and the often paralyzing confines of the audition process, as well as your entire career.

Our journey is to guide you to do the kind of work you are capable of all the time, no matter where you are. You will be challenged to stretch and explore new ways in which to work, to claim your voice, your courage, and your conviction with ease, authenticity, and joy! This class will change the way you work and the way you think about yourself as an actor.

The Work

Each week you’ll engage in a new way in which to explore your unique voice, to get personal, specific, and bold, and to challenge your resistance. And resistance will show up. Facing our fears and our resistance is a big part of what we need to do to push through to freedom in our work.

These 8 weeks include assigned scenes, material you find yourselves, on-camera work (for some of the classes), along with Meisner exercises, improv, storytelling and writing to bring you closer to a more connected experience, no matter where and when you show up to work. From your work on camera, your clips will be sent to you to continue your exploration.

This is a Master Class for advanced actors currently working regularly.

This class is not an audition or employment opportunity and there is no suggestion or guarantee of an audition or employment as a result of taking this class.
