Emotional Connection Class Overview

People think mastery over emotions means you won't feel them. That's like saying mastery over math means you don't add things up!

Mastery over emotion means you can access them anytime, anywhere, and under any circumstances. In other words, when you need them!

WHAT am I learning?

How to emotion safely and organically through movement and breath. This is work I've done for 25 years and it's based on Michael Chekhov and Kristin Linklater with a twist of me.

You'll learn to:

  • Find where different emotions live in your body (think anticipation in your stomach)

  • How to transition from one emotion to another

  • How to layer emotions

With layering you can:

  • start a scene happy

  • cry in the middle

  • rage with anger at the end

  • leave the scene laughing with gallows humor

WHY am I learning it?

Actors often use personal experience to find the emotions, instead of technique. Sometimes that well goes dry. Sometimes actors are tapping into unhealed wounds. Either way, it's unreliable and can be unhealthy.

This work is based on accessing emotions through movements and breath. This well does not go dry.

HOW is this going to help me?

Having your emotions accessible and at your fingertips means you get there faster for auditions and on set. You also learn to decompress in a healthy way so you don't leave the audition or the scene with an emotional hangover.

I think everyone and their mother should take these classes. Speaking of which, this class has a family rate. One person pays per family!
