Acting is the only creative pursuit you cannot practice alone. When your job entails LISTENING, and connecting with other people, practice is ESSENTIAL. Actor’s Weekly Workout is an On-camera drop in class for professional actors or actors intending to go professional. If you want to build a muscle and make it strong, you must exercise it regularly. Think of it like going to the gym…for your craft.
Don't want to commit to a long training program? Have you just finished a long training program and aren't sure what to do next? Have a busy schedule and don't know your availability from week to week? Wondering why you aren't booking more? Just want to explore the business? Can't afford a big financial commitment? Want something FUN and LOW STRESS to look forward to every week? Just want to make more friends? Join us! Whatever your training method, whatever your level of experience, you have something to gain and something to contribute to this class. Even non-actors are welcomed to join in and learn listening, communicating and connecting skills that can put be put to use in everyday life.
Each week will be different, but here is some of what we will do:

All performances will be taped and watched during class. Watching your performances are essential if you intend to pursue a career in front of the camera! This is a visual medium! Plus the camera will be your best teacher. For more information or questions about the class - contact email@example.com.
