Method Acting and Acting “As If”

All of our modules use interactive techniques that bring the client into a direct involvement with the developing skill sets. The module “guide” offers overview and helps to set goals, but it primarily encourages “hands on” participation. These techniques become part of a natural evolution of the learning experience. We use progressive video-taping with immediate feedback and critique, and client’s self- analysis on all modules.  While we offer specific goals for each session, people all advance at their own pace. Some of the modules below require several sessions.  We offer many opportunities for out-of-session learning and feedback on an as-needed basis as well.  Our ultimate objective is to help you become a better communicator who is prepared to deliver his/her message to audiences with precision, confidence and skill.

Most public appearance situations can be managed.  Even the most frightening audience can be engaged by using acting techniques to focus your energy and message.  It is always critical to allow your most authentic self to emerge in a communication setting, even if it’s blocked by certain fears.  Those fears can be overcome.  In this module, we use a variety of techniques to coach for calm, and still allow your genuine personality to emerge.
