Nothing really happens
unless something real happens.
You deserve to be here. You have a relationship in this moment. You do not have to act. 3 principles for approaching any piece of work, and pillars we turn to in every class.
Our top priority is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which Artists may further discover all the ways these statements are true, and to embody that belief, without fear of failure, retribution, or emotional harm. Nothing really happens unless something real happens, so the last thing we want to do in an acting class, is teach people how to “act”. Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances; it is the art of doing, and this invites the beautiful opportunity to truly be fully present, accountable, and to experience the core reason actors choose to participate in the art of acting: to experience, and to feel.
Acting class is a sacred place of art and story where, dedicated artists unite in a celebration of respect, courage, and integrity, and exercise the greatest human ability: our instinctive empathy. Acting class invites us to connect, listen, and allow the impact of the moment to move us and evolve our character; to grow and to learn; to know it, but not need to show it. The rules of acting class are short and simple: Be here, be you, and be all in.
In the Adult program, our main mission is to enjoy. In these classes we will work hard. We will be a team, and we will be accountable for all the reasons we are in the class, and endlessly encourage the transfer of real, authentic energy and truthful reciprocation. We will play hard, and laugh much through improv, scene study, camera work, exercises and games, auditions, creative writing, monologues and much, much more. Above all though, we will respect ourselves, each other, and the work.
We will not tell you how to act. That is a ridiculous notion. You are an amazing and powerful human, and you already have it all in you. We will only provide the sandbox, and some of the toys, and invite you to express your gifts wholeheartedly and unapologetically…and we will fully support you every step of the way.
**This can be an advanced and intermediate class experience that requires dedication, regular attendance, punctuality, and personal commitment. Participants should be prepared to participate in mature script material and emotional exercises. Scene memorization is required.**
