Tom Todoroff Acting Master Class

Calling all Actors, Directors and Performers!

On Thursday November 9th, come experience the incredible work Tom Todoroff does with actors worldwide and at his Conservatory in New York City. Tom Todoroff is a Director / Producer / Acting Coach whose clients include Liam Neeson, Samuel L. Jackson, Sasha Alexander, Tony Goldwyn, Allison Janney, Sienna Miller and many more!

Come see why Liam Neeson says “Tom’s care, sensitivity and insight are second to none” and Samuel L. Jackson says “Todoroff is the best. Look no further…all you need is T.T.”

What’s a Master Class?

The Master Class gives you first hand experience of the way Tom coaches and directs actors. You will observe how this powerful work renders overwhelming and immediate transformations!

In this class, instruction is done by way of demonstration. So attendees may volunteer to perform a 1-2 minute monologue and receive personalized coaching in front of the group!

Attendees are also welcome to observe only, if preferred.

All attendees will learn to transform nervousness into intense excitement, be expressive rather than impressive, strengthen and find their true inner voice, and think like a producer. Walk away with a deeper understanding of the art, the business and the spirituality of acting.

Please note: While this event is targeted to actors seeking in-depth professional training in acting for theater, film and television, we encourage actors, directors and performers of all levels and disciplines to attend this event. The information provided is applicable to all walks of life!

HOW TO PREPARE?
We highly recommend all attendees thoroughly review www.tomtodoroff.com and www.tomtodoroff.com/conservatory prior to attending the class and make a list of questions about any aspect of acting you wish to ask during the Q & A at the end of the class.

WHAT TO BRING? Materials for note-taking!

QUESTIONS? email us at intensive@tomtodoroff.com. In your email, please include your full name, the date and city name of the class in question.
