I want to express my deep gratitude to you for working with me for such a long period, not letting me off the hook and forcing me to open up. I feel better than I have in years. Free to change now. So, THANK YOU.

I just thought I’d check in to say that lately I’ve been really inspired to just sing and dance and express myself like I never have before! I thought that was neat, and definitely part of my growth from exploring more voice and movement at Actorium. It’s not just about the scenes and doing well in front of others, it’s about personal growth and change and freedom too… thanks.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the class tonight. I feel very… ‘alive’ now! It’s so rare but so good, to detach from everything and just be focusing on that absolute moment. I’m looking forward to the next class!

You are a great teacher and I love the classes! It’s exactly what I was looking for!

Thank you for keeping us on our toes. I really have been learning a lot coming to these classes about myself and (not just) acting. It really feels so much better being in the actual moment rather than acting it out in a way we think it should be.

Just wanted to type you a short note today to let you know how much I’m enjoying class. Yesterday when I was able to observe all the stations it finally became clear to me – when I tuned out the sound and watched everyone, it all looked and felt so natural and easy. No stiff performances and a penny dropped for me, what this repetition thing is all about. And I’m so, so curious to continue because my feeling is that all the bits and pieces I have patched together to provide myself with a sense of security over the years is going to get shaken up and I’m totally okay with it. Part of that, I think, is because I trust you and the space you have created/are holding. You are very intuitive, kind, transparent, masterful and real. I have a sense that you have done a lot of personal journey work and have aligned with a purpose to which you were called…there is heart and soul at the Actorium and I’m just so grateful to have stumbled across this!!!
