Let’s talk about LAUNCHING and LETTING GO.
We want to master the art of rehearsal. Do things to prepare, to transform, to grow.
This week we’re focusing on where our work begins.
The first rehearsal.
And we’re adding a tool to ensure you always have your own back when rehearsal is done.
A way to always focus your growth forward.
🔥 What do we want from a first rehearsal?
🔥 What does it take to let go and live as the character?
🔥 How do we capture rehearsal with a clear lens?
Instead of relying on the world to give us what we need … this week we’re chatting about how we’re going to do it ourselves.
It’s time to roar into rehearsal, into our craft, into our EA Transformation Toolbox!
Let’s discuss! Plus:
✨ Monday’s ACD Class Recap
✨ Weekly Personal Crafting Work
✨ Thursday Thought
✨ Free-flowing discussion on daily life as an acting artist, training, the profession, and current events - all through the lens of The Elysium Aesthetic.
Any question, any discovery, any anything you’re facing as an actor … we want to know about it, chat about it, turn it into a trampoline.
Join our live caller-driven show on Callin where we celebrate, commiserate, connect and clarify our craft together. Radio Elysium features free-flowing discussion on topics that speak to artistic life, EA classes, professional application, and current events.

… this idea of being a grand majestic piano. That's what we want. And we want all the keys working (that are) possible.
That's our goal.
I mean, I'm not going to be upset if there's a little key somewhere that's not working, it's a hunt. It's not a negative. It's not that I'm bad or I don't have a good acting instrument … it’s “okay, that's where the work is.”
We talk about an Olympic Spirit. The Olympic Spirit is defined as doing the work for every muscle until it's instinct … all so it unleashes your talent, that part of you no one can compete with.
We want all the keys to be able to be pressed and in life there are guards and filters so when life tries to push on our key, we don't just release our truthful behavior, our truthful humanity in that moment.
Something is there that guards, that filters, that slows that process down, giving us a moment to decide the type of behavior, the type of sound that comes out of our piano.
So there's a hunt here in our practice where we get to fall in love with these nooks and crannies. These little keys that nobody even knew were there …

Let’s try something different. Something new. Something for you to think about. A Thursday Thought inspired by our work.
What amount of time feels comfortable to consistently commit to a solo, first rehearsal with your script?
