"Directors Chair"
2010 "The Actors Workshop of South Florida"

To My Readers

If you read my previous “Directors Chair” #15, reviewing our completion of 2009, you know the successes and how proud I am of the accomplishments of not only our many students who are now working professionally but the work of our Ongoing students, as week to week they “raise the bar” of their expectations of their talent and pursuing their passion.

We are now in our 9th year and the possibilities continue to inspire me and my students.
We are expanding our relationships with theatre companies, film makers and agents, and with our updated website, blog and face book page we are doing everything we can to help others find us from more than the word of mouth our reputation has inspired.
New students joined our Ongoing workshop after their completion of the Introductory, 8 week workshop in November 2009, not only were they inspired by our end of year Ongoing showcase but inspiring to students already in the Ongoing because of their enthusiasm and hunger to work and develop what they had learned in the Introductory workshop, they wasted no time.

Each week there is a new excitement in our students because of personal and professional discovery and always with an acknowledgement of the safety provided in our workshops, unlike anything they have previously known, which creates an environment to push one’s emotions further and see what is revealed.

So as we are all still taking steps to dance and not just walk away from the fears of practical life, to quote many of our November Introductory students who said, ”I couldn’t ignore my inner voice any longer, finally I decided what am I waiting for, this is my time.”
It does take courage to finally say that but at "The Actors Workshop of South Florida" you will know that you are not alone!

Thanks for taking a look.
