JANUARY 2020
Greetings!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Verve invites you to focus on three Ps in 2020: Process. Present. Play. 
First, your PROCESS (aka technique) has to be solid. Do you know what you are doing and how you are doing it? Are you deeply working your Role Prep and 7 Steps? 
Second, be PRESENT when you are working. Once you have started rehearsing, focus on being present in the moment and the work. 
Third, PLAY. Acting is alive and active. Have some fun and play while you are rehearsing. Let go and let it live. 

All of Verve’s classes have PROCESS, PRESENT and PLAY integrated into them. Come apply these 3 Ps with us this year. Whether you're aspiring or working, we have a class for you! Click on one of the links or photos below, or check out the calendar .
