“Sometimes people arrive here not respecting themselves, but that doesn’t last long. [chuckles] I think in-depth training re-humanizes us. There are as many acting languages as there are actors. I find that developing a common language with each actor is key, but even before that to establish the aesthetic of reverence for this work is vital. Then of course, we are irreverent with each other, which keeps people from getting too stuck on themselves. We are continually challenged to get out of our own way. I’m just a doorman, really. I show them the door, but they walk through by themselves.”
WE ARE ONLINE!
Acting schools everywhere are switching to online learning while we ride out the pandemic together. It was a little daunting at first but we soon learned the demand and desire for this work is unrelenting. Actors want to continue training.

Benefits of Online Acting Classes
“With everything that our world is facing now with coronavirus, we find ourselves in unprecedented times. It’s also true that great art is created in scary times. We don’t have to shut down our creativity and let cabin fever set in. It’s important to keep engaging with other artists and interactive classes on the internet are a great way to do so!” – Backstage.com
