Hear From Our Students

“She has helped me find a new appreciation and a better utilization of my body….”

 

I am forever grateful to have met and to be taught by the butterfly of a human, Julia Crockett. Julia has helped me to find release throughout my body in ways that were so kind and welcoming and so helpful to me as an actor and as a human. She is a master of movement and such an effective communicator that she has helped me find new space to explore and take up. Julia has helped me utilize my breath as an instrument of release rather than as an instrument of control. She has helped me find a new appreciation and a better utilization of my body and I am very thankful for her.

Her openness and generosity with this knowledge is profound — She cultivates a safe, judgment-free space where students are able to learn and fail and grow through experience and with total support. Her passion for her work and towards her students is powerful. I’m a better person and actor for having studied with Julia.

“That might have been the most playful I’d ever gotten in the Studio thus far…..”

 

Physical Character was an exciting way to kinda shake things up and a way for us to dive into the work that we wouldn’t have been able to otherwise, and to learn stuff that, to me, was just so much fun. There was so much play involved. Julia and Mac approach all their work with such energy and enthusiasm but with a serious passion; every class with them feels like a workshop in play, just bouncing ideas back and forth collaboratively. That might have been the most playful I’d ever gotten in the Studio thus far.

Julia and Mac’s Physical Character class is a game-changer! I learned clear, simple, creative and really effective ways to bring a character & its physicality to life via the tools acquired from the course. Not to mention, I got to work with such knowledgeable, fun and inspiring teachers. 10/10 would def recommend to a friend.
