About This Course

Enjoy your individuality as you learn to be more truthful to your genuine self-expression.

Self expression is at the heart of all arts. In this course we begin with simple exercises to find the connection to immersing yourself in an experience, and as the course progresses you will learn to trust your instincts and enjoy your authenticity as you take on increasingly challenging exercises. Along with the training in self expression you will be guided through the process of working in an online format, and how to use it successfully.

In acting our preparation is in our imagination. How do we get it out of our head into our body to share with an audience? There are tools to pull you into the body and they are taught in depth in this course. Our body is our instrument. We are training it to be present and to connect with the physical sensations of our feelings in our bodies. Feelings are real, not just an idea. They come up in response to people, places, time of day and they express themselves in our bodies. My experience of feelings has been overwhelm and confusion leading to extreme anxiety and isolation. I have hated my body which so shamefully betrays my inner life. I have sought, most unsuccessfully, to control, deny or hide them. Through this course I have come to physically understand how to get out of my head and go into my body.I am investigating my feelings. Owning them, not denying them. Learning to allow their expression and to be curious . The body is not just some sort of vehicle attached to our head. It is intelligent, separate from the mind and always communicating our experience like it or not.
