principles to act by

JOY

Acting is at it’s best is joyful journey, where every moment is an opportunity to explore and have fun.

LOVE

Your performance is a gift that you freely offer your audience, without any expectation of receiving anything in return.

RISK

By pushing your boundaries and embracing the unknown, you enter a state of being present (What is stage presence?!) and fully alive, where anything can happen. Even Magic! It's in these moments of risk that your most authentic and compelling performances can emerge.
