Students often study years with the same teacher and never develop professional careers. They become too comfortable and stagnate in the safety of the classroom.

Call to book a Participatory Audit.
"Susan Giosa understands the depth of the human spirit. She teaches you to tap into that part of yourself that is deepest and most personal and use it to enrich your art. Susan taught me how to take risks, both emotionally and physically and it completely changed the level of my work. When I see "She cries" in an audition scene I am no longer intimidated because I know Susan's techniques work. The quality of the dramatic work you see in Susan's class is unparelleled and is, quite simply, extraordinary."

"If you're looking to be challenged and grow as a person as well as an artist and to have fun, I think Sue is the place to go for that. It's absolutely different from any other class I've been in. It's a really intimate environment where the students and even Sue become part of your family. Trust is the main thing you want with a coach and Sue is genuine, she's pure, and she's warm. So it's easy to be yourself in front of her, drop those defenses and just be vulnerable, which is what you want as an artist. When I have a job, anytime I feel like I'm disconnected or hit a wall, I do her unique exercise that opens my mind and takes me to a different place where I'm just being rather than intellectual trying to be. Get ready to workout. You'll be in for a big journey that you won't want to come back from."

"Susan pushes me. She's the only studio I have been to that focuses on really developing character and not just "performing" dialogue as myself. She's able to focus my energy as the actor through the character as they are written instead of the other way around which often negates the written givens in the script. She has a technique that you can rely on that puts you in your core and gives you access to all your deepest emotions - this technique allows the actors to be consistent in their performance and therefore reliable on set and on stage. Susan has such a love of theatre and acting as a true art form that she will push your expectations and you'll have no choice but to grow. More than anything Susan has given me more confidence as an actor and a stronger understanding of what I deserve and how to get it. Thank you Sue!"
