The Susan Giosa Acting Workshop is about the personal, individual development of each artist. The goal is to understand how you, as a unique person and actor, work and eventually become master of your own acting technique.
A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM SUSAN GIOSA
I have been teaching acting over 15 years, in Santa Monica, Los Angeles and New York City. Many actors come to me understanding character, objectives, intentions but their work often lacks emotional life. An actor must be willing to reveal himself through character. I believe the ability to tap into and use your full emotional instrument on demand is essential for achieving truthful and compelling work. Unlike many other acting studios I believe a warm-up is essential to rid the body of defenses and I teach a unique warm-up that removes your fears and inhibitions and releases your full creative potential. My student's ability to connect easily and quickly to their deepest emotional core is the result of this specific warm-up technique.
My goal is to teach each student to be a master of his or her own craft. My acting technique has been shaped by working intensely with acclaimed acting teacher Larry Moss, my graduate studies at RADA (the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts), and honed by my experiences as a working actress for over twenty years. Often students study years with the same teacher and never develop professional careers. They become too comfortable and stagnate in the safety of the classroom. Every student needs individual attention in order to fulfill his or her full potential. I not only teach the art of acting but I also guide my actors towards thriving and productive careers in the truly competitive world of show business.
Welcome. I look forward to working with you -- Susan Giosa
