About the ACTIONS Supercharger Workshop

Tense and in your head? Insecure about your choices? Not booking like you know you could?

There’s an exciting, yet surprisingly simple solution that really works.

Playing actions in your work is likely not new for you, but after many years of teaching, I started to realize something vital. While most actors get actions (verbs/intentions/tactics) on a basic, rather intellectual level, they don’t actually know how to select, embody and really land a powerful action on another character in a way that moves the story forward.

In this laser-focused 3-day workshop I’m going to teach you how. And the results are very exciting.

When done well, a good action sets you free. It releases you and transmutes your nerves. It demands that you listen and unleashes your spontaneity. And most importantly, it affects the other character and tells the story on the page. A good action helps you really live the scene instead of act it. And it can also pay the bills, my friend.

Walk away from this class feeling empowered, excited, and ready to deliver your very best work in auditions, on camera, and for live audiences.

This workshop features three 2-hour sessions:

What to Expect:

  • While this is not quite a scene class, working-class participants will be given scenes and/or monologues to prepare in advance. Material will be mostly film and TV sides as well as some material from plays.
  • Each week all participants and auditors will be given assignments/experiments to complete for the following week.
  • Each class will consist of lecture, group exercises, and some short scene work through the lens of playing actions.
  • Actors will come away with a solid roadmap for making strong action choices and embodying them with confidence in auditions, film, TV, and theatre.

What’s the Difference Between an Auditor and a Participant?

All courses in our Performance Programs include two levels of participation: Auditor and Participant. Auditors listen to and watch live class sessions, but don’t participate and interact with the instructor/other students. Auditing is great for students who want to experience a course without participating. Auditors can watch live sessions, access on-demand replays of live classes and have access to course materials. 

Participants, on the other hand, attend live classes and interact with instructors and other students. In addition, participants can access class recordings, course materials and contact instructors.

Will I Earn a Certificate or Course Credit?

No. Our Performance Program courses are taught by master instructors, coaches and other arts professionals, and not affiliated with a partner university. If you’re interested in earning a certificate or joining a degree-earning course, explore our University Programs.

Who Is My Instructor?

Choose the Instructor tab to learn more about the instructor for your class. All of our Performance Program instructors are in-demand coaches with decades of industry experience. Study with the best!

Who Is This Course For? Are There Prerequisites?

No. There are no prerequisites. However, our Performance Program courses are designed primarily for intermediate and advanced actors, dancers and performers. If you’re unsure if you’re ready for a course, contact an EMERGE learning advisor.

How Do I Enroll in the Course?

To enroll, select “Register for Course” on the course details page. Then, create an account and select which course and participation level you prefer for that course, e.g. Auditor/Participant. Finally, complete checkout.

After successfully enrolling, the EMERGE team will be in touch to help you access course materials and answer any questions.

Am I Required to Attend Live Classes?

Participants should plan to attend weekly live course sessions. If the student can’t make a course, arrangements should be made with the instructor.

Another option: If you can’t make a course’s regular weekly live sessions, consider participating as an Auditor and viewing class recordings each week.

Do I Need Special Technology?

Our classes are live webinars offered via Zoom. All you need to attend is a stable internet connection and a connected device. Students may wish to upgrade audio or web cam, but this is not required.

When Is Tuition Due?

Courses must be paid in full prior to enrollment. Enrollment is open on a first-come, first-served basis. Our courses do fill up quickly; if you’re interested in participating, enroll as soon as you can.
