Objective: As an award-winning actress with many years of experience teaching classes on basic and advanced levels, I am offering my expertise in extracting talent from the most diverse pool of students, enabling them to reach across personal boundaries, and produce remarkable transformations which help them create the character, on stage or in film. The process of creating a character in itself is an inspirational one; it teaches us, transforms us and guides us to be better on stage and in life.
I am applying the Actors Studio Method acting technique in my classes, which instills proper procedures, liberating individual creativity, unleashing their unbounded imagination, thus resulting in spontaneous, surprising and entertaining work.

Understanding the work of the Actors.
We hope you will see the potential of this amazing journey and share in our celebration and in the process challenge a worldwide audience to recognize and connect with its own humanity.
From Stanislavski to Strasberg…to you, this innovative workshop focuses on the artist’s personal journey. The artist’s instrument refers to the whole self, body and mind and all of the five senses, complete with emotions, thoughts, imagination, sensitivity, honesty, passion and awareness. You work towards recognizing the analogy between your personal history and the character you are developing.
It is a path of discovery to guide you as an artist, the actor, director and writer towards developing an inner technique that works individually in a professional collaborative way.
In order for a script to be realized and the director's vision to be satisfied, the actor’s work process must be understood and a common language needs to exist between the collaborators, the filmmaker, director and actor.
Without that common language, a gap will exist no matter how great the script is or how fantastic the director. Obtaining from actors their most amazing work is possible only if their process is understood in detail.
When the directors and actors navigate together in a specific way, a delicate dance begins challenging one another to deliver their best work and to bring balance, energy and uniqueness to the project as the final result. Only then artistry can develop. Specificity is universal.
In taking dialogue from the page to the stage and silver screen, reflected in the powerful work of James Dean, Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe and other great ones, you will learn: relaxation, concentration, sense memory, magic, improvisation, objects, substitution, animal exercises, song & dance, private moments, speaking out, moment-to moment, justification, affective memory and given circumstances. These are all techniques we will explore.
This workshop is designed for anybody, whether they are shy or gregarious. A place for anyone who wants to self improve and not self indulge; to try different ways to overcome obstacles personally and professionally, and use them to necessitate achievement of a goal and win.
All can benefit from this environment.
It is professional fun, yet challenging for everyone. Anyone that has ever had an interest in acting will be served with total professionalism. You will be introduced, encouraged, and educated about the inner workings of the theater and film industry.
Theatre could enlarge and perhaps even alter the quality of life.
