Week Six: The Road To Elysium

Happy Monday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily and Part One of The Elysium Aesthetic. We begin each month with a complimentary, week one perspective-shaper. A tone-setter for the tools and practices we’ll be covering over the next three weeks in each of our three areas of lifelong growth: artistry, instrument and craft. Enjoy!

New to the work? These free introductory chapters are where we recommend you start: Kindred Spirits, What Is Good Acting?, Growing Excellence, The Muscles of Preparation.
