Oh I can not even begin to describe my excitement to have been able to go back to the first class of 2016 at Anthony Meindl Actor Workshop. This studio, the students, the teachers, give me inspiration, motivation, and a judge-free creative space to better my craft.
This is going to be an exciting year. We were a smaller class at the end of 2015, but now we are completely full again, 20, and some brand new faces and talent.
The class is 4 hours long, and sometimes goes longer, especially with a bigger class, but I do not mind. I get to be inspired from all the scenes and see how creative these amazing actors are.
Also, I am starting out the year with a bang. I am very happy to be able to work on this month, "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" in which I get to portray the role of Satan.
This is funny, yet still challenging scene,and I enjoyed working with my scene partner, who has been with me since intro, and we are just now getting the chance to work with one another.
I wanted to do this for I wanted to do something fun to start the year, nothing too dark, but something also in which makes me stand in a powerful role, and own my strength in stillness & not having to work too hard to be able to get my message across.
I guess my size, I have felt that I needed to really "work" to intimidate, power over, etc, but I'm learning, nope...little is better!
So yes, I love this place, I love the people and I am going to keep surrounding myself in a positive environment and inspiring people to keep me reaching my goals.....
No picture this go around which is crazy, for my husband has been designated class picture taker, but I guess the excitement of being back, had us all too in the moment to bring out our phones!
