AMAW Santa Fe Weekend Intensive Foundations Course

This weekend Intensive will launch even the most seasoned actor on a path of discovery and play. The pillars of the AMAW philosophy inspire more tangible shifts than any other acting program. The program is designed to very quickly move you from an actor who “acts” into an artist who embodies authentic feeling and creativity.

Sunday • November 11 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
(there will be a break for lunch)

TV & Film Acting Class for Working Actors

My next six-week class starts Monday, Nov. 5 (through Dec. 10). As a way to support your passion for the fine art AND the business of acting, especially at a time when Netflix and other major players are planning many productions in New Mexico, I’m keeping the price modest and offering former students a discount.

I hope to see you and support your professional artistry and ambitions. New Mexico talent must be ready and confident in competing with LA, NY, and Atlanta, and that’s what the discipline of consistent practice and professional coaching provides. 

Space is limited to eight actors, so remember to sign up sooner than later.  I’ll send PayPal instructions when I hear from you.

Onward and upward, dear actors,

$275 for six weeks; 20 percent discount for returning students ($225)

Mondays 7 to 10 p.m.
November 5 – December 10
