Today’s Target

​​You deserve to be whoever you are, on any day of the week.

You deserve a training practice that always accepts you for who you are.

On your good days and on your bad days. 

Always moving you forward, from wherever you start, to the highest levels of a fearless acting instrument. 

​A powerful physical practice for your instrument that stretches you beyond the tensions and rules of the daily body to the possibilities and permissions of your acting instrument.

Today we welcome the teammate - and full gauntlet! - of the EA Physical Practice.
