The goal is to leave the student with the confidence and ability to make adjustments on their own.

Monthly Workshops

Think of workshops like a bootcamp that focuses your "actor" brain to strengthen and develop one muscle at a time.

 Personalization Workshops are about exploring how you, the actor, can find an authentic and easily repeatable connection to character. We're going to get you connected to the character & free up your impulses to allow for a more grounded and dynamic performance. 

Personalization Workshops
