No one way is the only way! I’m a ‘pluralist’ combining the best of the many excellent methodologies I’ve learned over 40 years, filling Meisner’s ‘Golden Box’ with as many tools as possible.
The actor is treated as an athlete accessing both the physical and emotional aspects of the art, including learning how to be athletically relaxed while fully alert and present in the moment with energy minus tension. Each person is beautifully unique and individual needs are always addressed.
You will train in a positive environment where surrendering to imagination, risk-taking and learning is fun. Negative feedback is never given and the student’s personal life is never invaded. You may cover: Character work, scene breakdown, monologues, auditioning for theatre, on camera and self-taping and the business of acting.
