Exposure is defined as being notified that someone you have been in contact with has tested positive. The studio will require that they not attend class for 10 days, starting from the date of exposure and ask them to provide a negative testing before they return. If they do not know the date of exposure, the 10 days will start from the date of their first negative COVID test after exposure. The studio staff will contact the class directly to advise them. The actor will remain anonymous.


  • That actor’s class will then move online to Zoom for 1-2 classes, depending on when the positive test occurred.

In this four-week (8 sessions) Intensive, you’ll learn how to make your audition stand out from others by creating a character’s deep emotional memories so that you feel them as your own.  Our tools free you up from using your own painful memories or limited experiences, and allow you to access your emotions and imagination to make the person on the page come alive.  The teachers create a safe, inclusive space so you can explore more complex scenes (slices of life),  tackle physical challenges of auditioning,  and take creative risks all while learning to trust yourself and your instincts. You’ll also learn more about Haber Phrasing so you can quickly nail a script “read” with little time to prepare.

Through the use of specific imagined details, you’ll create characters who show up for you while you’re in an audition,  cold reading, or on set/stage.  You’ll learn how to be present, to be in your body – to be real.  And to better understand and trust who you are as a person and an actor.


This class is for Professional Working Actors with prior training and experience that might include co-star/guest-star/recurring roles, leads in independent films, and professional theatre experience.
NOTE: We take training into consideration – not just credits. If you have extensive acting training, please send your resume to, and we will let you know if Advanced is the right fit for you.
