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 a few 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 on set, on stage, in rehearsal, and in the audition room. From your work on camera, your clips will be sent to you to continue your exploration.

This class is for advanced actors. 

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.
