Each acting studio is almost like a dare, built off of competitiveness, a place to learn, yes, but also a place to compare and survive and compete. I am constantly surprised when I don’t find that here. And I am so competitive and so ready to “buck up”, and every class I enter I just get hit with love and acceptance. You have found a way to encourage growth and creativity, without stifling an actor’s will and guts to make their own choices. While at the same time, asking each of us to stretch ourselves uncomfortably far, as far as we can imagine. And I just want you to know how much my practice has changed in my heart and my life because of BGB.
