DUE TO COVID-19, classroom lectures ARE online THIS FALL & WINTER. They will be interactive ... but from home. A LOT OF DAN'S HOLLYWOOD FRIENDS HAVE JOINED OUR DISCUSSIONS ON THE CRAFT OF ACTING.
WE ARE FILMING SITCOM EPISODES AND SOME DRAMATIC SHORTS THROUGHOUT THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, BEING CAREFUL TO SOCIALLY-DISTANCE OURSELVES.
EVERYONE WHO TAKES THE CLASS GETS AN ACTING ROLE ON CAMERA EACH MONTH. HERE ARE THE DATES OF SHOOTING:
FIRST TIMERS TO OUR WEBSITE:
It’s simple: You get what you put into it. Those who take full advantage of these workshop sessions will reap the most time in scene study, coaching, feedback, demo reel footage, and mentorship from ten-year Hollywood veteran Dan Steadman, who has written for Disney animation (Yin Yang Yo!), NBC/Comcast/Universal (The Mascots), and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! He has also penned, with his writing partner Rajeev Sigamoney, original sitcoms for Emmy® winners Sean Hayes, Tony Hale, Melissa McCarthy and Academy Award® winner Octavia Spencer. Dan Steadman has written and directed twelve feature films, three with international distribution.
The only way we've been able to make so many films is to crowd-fund them. We do this with our acting workout, taught by Hollywood veteran Dan Steadman. After forming a community of artists in 2014, he continued building a Midwestern repertory company in 2016 with his weekly acting workout, providing expanded opportunities for the actors he has worked with, and for newcomers. Dan coaches and mentors each actor in a new scene every week, running the gamut from comedic to heartfelt drama. This is from the perspective of a director -- what a director is looking for in an actor.
The Actors Workout is for ages 15 and up.
