As often as I can I offer scholarships to my retreats and classes. Daisy received a full scholarship for the 12 day Meisner Intensive Retreat in October last year and I've seen her in class and 1:1 on Zoom as she prepped for drama school auditions since. The change I have seen in her has rocked my world. What remarkable courage she has shown.
I forgot to share these beautiful and kind words so here they are. And thank you Daisy for trusting me to hold that space for you. You are incredible.
My experience at both feet acting was something I never expected. We were welcomed in with open arms, and I instantly felt a connection to the space and the people. I loved that we cooked and ate together, cried and laughed together.
I’ve made memories I will never forget.
I pushed myself beyond limits I didn’t even realise I had.
There was lots of challenges and I had to look in the mirror and see every part of myself, even the ones I have hated for so long. But Steph showed us how to embrace this and use it to create magic!
The exercises I have done with Steph have left me completely open to myself and my capabilities.
The Meisner technique is truly incredible and will change the way you work as an actor for the better.
Even in the smallest of situations I find myself using what I learnt on the course, and I have never felt more supported to continue my journey as an actor with all I have learnt from Steph.
Not only did I leave a better actor, I left as an even better version of myself that I am so proud of.
This wouldn’t have been possible without Steph and the intro to Meisner Course. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I am forever grateful for this experience.
Followed by an email a few months later...
I just wanted to email to let you know I’ve been offered a place at Bristol Old Vic! I wanted to thank you so much for all you’ve done for me. This was the first audition where I felt so connected to myself and the pieces were in my own voice, I don’t think I could have done that without the Meisner retreat.
What a privilege. You beauty.
Up and out.
