Next Session TBA

    "In five seconds, actors give me enough insight to decide if I've wasted my audition slot or if they’re going to 'wow' me. Learning to walk in the room and command the space without being demanding is a skill every actor needs to master."

Student Feedback

"I really liked Sarah’s workshop. She was blunt, honest, and entertaining. I really liked that she was herself and confessed to insecurities, even, that helped us all feel more comfortable to learn and perform. Thanks for having someone so supportive lead a workshop. It makes you feel less lonely in such a competitive industry."

"Sarah's class was very informative and entertaining. I learned so much. I think a big part of it was her approach, experience and the positive environment. It was very encouraging and still beneficial."
