Workshops for Actors & Performers

Valerie created a series of experiential workshops designed to help professional actors and performers access their creativity and spontaneity through action methods including psychodrama.  Valerie guides actors to remove any emotional blocks so they then manifest more authentic performances and can approach their roles with range and confidence. Workshops focus on topics such as:

Facing a Challenging Role
Taming the Inner Critic
Stage Fright (and How To Manage It)
Where Am I in My Performing Career?
Breaking Through Emotional Blocks

Valerie is available to consult with casts, directors, and theatre groups. She can help with any blocks to creativity and spontaneity for Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Valerie is also available to teach psychodramatic methods to students and teachers at acting schools and universities around the country. Valerie can be reached at 917-572-8114 for further information.
