Power and confidence comes to those who practice it. If you train poorly, you will perform poorly. Acting is one of the most competitive careers and when it comes to being successful, only the best get the work and continue to get it. If that’s not enough, acting on set surrounded by hundreds of people, burdened by time constraints, producers and directors under pressure pushing your performance – there is no room to move. How do you ensure you’re making the most of each moment, remaining present and ensuring your ability is swinging through? This course will kick your mindset into professional, working order, empower you with actionable and practical acting techniques to make the most of your time on screen and through working one on one inside your personal struggles; either on set or in the rehearsal space, we’ll aim to bring your confidence and ability on par. So you can step out onto set and own the day, your character and your ability as the professional Actor.
