"Fuck polite!" - Sanford Meisner, acting teacher

No more half-assing. We are going to COMMIT to our characters, bear-hug our perspectives, fully inhabit our bodies, and leave ourselves exposed. In this class we will do those fruity-tooty acting exercises everyone makes fun of, and we're not going to be embarrassed about it. We're going to fall in love. We're going to recall the smells of our childhood. We're going to do mime. At the end, we're going to be braver, more joyful, multidimensional performs. We will learn to tap into our intuition and cast our inhibitions to the wind.
