Champions can’t be complacent.
Success comes when you’re razor sharp.
Champions earn success. The business will take you on a wild ride and beat you down. It’s your job to be deep in the practice of pushing back against the industry’s ridiculousness by doubling down on the work. Whether you’re on a show, just off of one or about to be on one, The Wednesday Workout punches complacency in the face. Boundaries are pushed, safety nets removed and no room is left for anything but your powerful talent.
Meisner-based exercises train heightened awareness, deep presence and emotional specificity so you dance on the edge of every moment.
Scene work and creative adjustments train artistic flexibility, the ability to take notes, making swift, bold choices and coming to the kind of self-awareness that allows you to take command of your work.
“This class can’t be about me. I’m only as good as my ability to help you find the power to be great without me. My goal is to create and defend spaces in which you’re expected to push your own boundaries. And I do my best to do that with kindness and firmness. Sure, sometimes actors need a kick in the ass. But it can’t be about my ego. It has to be about your growth.” -Steve Braun
