• PASADENA, CA: February 26, 2024 – March 8, 2024

      2-Week Master Class on The Selves

      The class will be focused on character transformation through scene study. This workshop will introduce a new technique for the actor called Discovering the Seven Selves among them are the Vulnerable Self, Decisive Self, Unresolved Self, Trusting Self, Social Self, etc. We will begin the class with physical exercises that have been created for this particular technique. How does this technique affect you the actor in the scene? This work will expand your casting status if practiced and practiced! You’ll be amazed. This is the legacy of a great teacher at the Juilliard School who has given me permission to share it with the class.
      So let’s take a risk.
      Love you all
