Ignite. Your. Acting.

It is my belief that an actor’s inner thoughts and feelings act like a fire. They must simmer and churn, enflame and engulf. They can burn cold and hot. They can implode or explode; leap and dive, dance and burst, but they never go out. They are always alive.

We achieve this fire with technique.  Script analysis, structure, and connection are where it starts. Learn how to blend bold choices with powerful substitutions.

Ryan provided me with a vital foundation for my work and my career as an actor...I can always count on him to help me achieve my most authentic work.
