The Directors Chair
To My Readers
What a year it has been for “The Actors Workshop of South Florida”!

In May we moved into our own studio in Deerfield Beach, we added Short Programs to our class schedule, including “Know Your Type, Getting Cast 101, Audition Techniques, Improvisation, On-camera/cold read, Shakespeare 101, Voice and diction”, which offers those who cannot complete our 8 week, Introductory workshop and join our Ongoing workshop the opportunity to participate in our company and gain intensive insight into training and understanding the industry.

We held our “Industry” showcase of talent, inviting members of our industry to see new talent, all sixteen of our students gained agent representation, many of whom had not acted before and had been training with us for less than six months, thus supporting the consistency of the technique we teach and the results it achieves.

Our student’s continue to be working actors in the South Florida community in films such as “Marley and me“, television “The Glades and Burn Notice” and theatre with many of our local theatres.

Two of our students moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of this year and gained representation within days, one of whom got her SAG card within three weeks, unheard of!
After the initial response of “you really learned that training in South Florida?” The jokes are over as they prove their talent and training consistently by getting the work, out shining many at auditions who have already spent years in L.A. We do still remind them that this training comes out of Los- Angeles and New York, their teacher just happens to be living in SF!

So in 2011, we move into our 10th year, excited at what more is to come, already including a new play and plans to hold a workshop at the Delray film festival.
We welcome you to contact us and audit our classes.

Thanks for taking a look
