Actors will come to understand and experience the tools they need to navigate auditions, rehearsals and performances. 

Powerful rehearsal and performance tools increase your skills as an actor. The class emphasizes creating a character that is a believable, natural and spontaneous, actor preparation and freeing your actor’s instrument allowing you to trust yourself as an artist.
