“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

At About The Work, all acting classes are part of the “7 Steps to Elevated Truth” Mentorship Program which bring you from where ever you are today to a true Emotional Technician delivering Oscar Worthy moments. By providing the space to feel comfortable to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone, we help you create your best work on a consistent basis.

About The Class

  • Every acting class begins with mission setting and team connection so that we can approach the material from a place of openness.  Our unique physical/vocal warmup allows you to find that neutral place and release unwanted tension, which is a necessary task before diving into the material.

  • We explore every part of attacking a scene — as a cold read, having it for some time to make choices (audition style), getting in to the nitty gritty of it (conservatory style) and then performance in costume ready to be filmed.

  • All students begin as Groundwork Engineers learning the Macro Method and The Chakra Approach® to prepare them on their journey to Elevated Artisan, where they will flawlessly play their body like the true instrument it is channeling the elevated meaning of their work and their connection to the audience.

  • Classes are limited to 16 students and EVERY student works in every acting class.

The Technique

MACRO METHOD

Think like the person hiring you, the director. Using an eagle eye perspective of the story, our 6 step process will teach you how to:

  • Break down your scene in 5 minutes

  • Make strong choices that align with the director’s thinking

  • Stand out in your auditions

  • BEST OF ALL: No more stressing about which choice to make!

CHAKRA METHOD

Our secret sauce! Are you ready to get out of your head and release the blocks that are holding you back? We’ve got you covered. Our 7 step Approach you will learn how to:

  •  Solidify / Feel confident in your process
  • Deepen your emotional capacity and explore your full self expression
  • Have control and specificity over your brand of reaction, what makes you, YOU, leading to Oscar worthy moments.
