I’ve had the good fortune of attending Valerie Simon’s Inner Stage™ workshops. As a performer, I found them to be enormously valuable. Not only did they empower and liberate me artistically, but personally as well. She understands actors and their challenges as well as the human condition, and she throws herself into providing a safe, powerful, and transcending experience that really works! New channels of expression and imagination were opened that resulted in direct contact with a no-fooling self-awareness and honesty in my craft. I would recommend The Inner Stage™ to any performer looking for an authentic path into the unconscious. The unconscious is a treasure chest of dramatic and comedic power and Valerie Simon’s workshops are the key to its lock. Thank you, Valerie!
