Lots of people have been asking about my next workshop. So I’ve decided to kick off the New Year with two on the same day, addressing distinct but complimentary topics. I encourage you to attend both if possible, but if you can’t make it for the whole 4 hours there’s no need to despair! I aim to make both of them fun and productive.

3-5pm Character Walk Development
Propelling yourself from one point to another across a flat stage may seem like a simple thing – but that trajectory can be accomplished in a myriad of different ways. From a neutral walk, to a glide with no accent, to a Napoleonic march, finding the right walk is a crucial aspect of character development. This class will teach techniques for character walks, opening the actor’s imagination to wider possibilities and encouraging exploration of new ones.
