less than masterful."

WHAT DO YOU WANT
We all want to work. Of course. But before you can get the job, you have to be able to do the job.
To serve the story. Truthfully. Selflessly. Wholeheartedly. That can be tough when we’re asked to play under the pressures of "the business," often with very little time to prepare. Our fears often force us to protect ourselves and simply act ideas of the story, not have a truly human experience.
We need a practice and mentality that allows us to create and play with true artistry – quickly, deeply, consistently, and vulnerably.
Whether you’re new to acting or are already working,
You want to create work that has an undeniable impact,
You want to play with confidence and the authority of being a self-sufficient artist,
You want to build longevity and a healthier approach to your career,
You want to practice in a room committed wholly to the work, not anyone’s ego,
You want to challenge yourself with stories beyond what you are capable of now,
You want to rediscover the joy in the process and see how far you can go,
You've come to the right place.
