IT STARTED with a series of 15 ONE-DAY acting workshops. Taipei actors gave feedback saying they wanted a steady class to improve week-by-week, a forum to accept and give feedback, to work on something more substantial. We started with a run of 6 weeks, and still students wanted more…
THEN we created a NY/LA style acting class than ran more than 150 weeks and trained over 80 local actors.
NOW we have just finished our first ON-CAMERA CLASS with camera operators, projection screen, and instant playback and feedback and are looking to make it weekly.
WE ARE ALSO taking LAB SPACE-style training to local talent agencies and universities.
All classes give you the fundamentals of the craft, exercises that are used the world over, and quick and powerful ways to make your performance more natural and spontaneous. No experience is necessary. It’s a great start for the beginning actor AND a great way to review your training if you are an experienced actor. Gain confidence in auditioning, learn the proper ways to approach material, learn how to create realism from the page, and make effective and compelling choices to move audiences.
“Good actors train, and GREAT actors CONTINUE to train.”
