“This class gave me the tools to grow into this art form over a long period of time. I would absolutely take another course with Rolf again” Meghan G.

This is a straight up, 6 session acting class, pure and simple. Think craft over cameras. There will be limited cell phone recording as a tool for homework. You will learn how to find the truth in a character from the ground up, no matter where it may fall under the acting umbrella: Stage (musical, drama and comedy), film and television, radio, voice over, and video games. These are all platforms that the modern actor needs to be able to perform in and there are many techniques required for each – some the same, some similar and some very different. BUT at the core of all of them is - quite simply - the craft, the art of acting.

"He taught me to trust my instincts, that everything is about choice … the final decision is something to be embraced and not afraid of.” Samantha G
