Activated acting is acting with courage, vulnerability and awakened confidence. When choices come from a combination of understanding story and your place within it, as well as your own personal worldview and emotional resonance your work changes. Learn to listen to your intuition and your "Inner Muse" to move your performance to the next level. Learn how to connect with your body, your mind, your emotions while carving out your interior landscape in each scene to bring forth a truthful, authentic expression. This brush-up class works to further the work discovered in your initial Activated Actor Class, focusing on what you wish to activate in your current life and how to bring that to your characters.
Actors will bring choices of material they wish to play with, and with a partner choose the scene to work together for the evening.

Natalie is an amazing teacher. I got so much out of this class, but as much as anything, it reminded me that acting is a joy and a gift. The class is a gift to all of us that are striving to be our best version of ourselves as actors.
"It’s been a whirlwind of a week and tbh i have to give a ton of credit here. At the start of the month I signed up for Natalie Roy’s Activated Actor class (which I loved every moment of). After my very first class of it I brought my notes from class to a self tape for a really cool project with Dani Baum at 660 studios (she’s amazing if you need a self tape done). Fast forward to Friday night when I got an email that my agent needed an updated reel for the same project. I sent it and on Monday the casting director (who I’ve never met before) told my agent that he loved my self tape and reel so much that production was FLYING ME TO LA TO READ. This has never ever happened to me and I have to be honest that Natalie opened me up as an actor so much to bring out the performance I gave in that tape. I’m in the running for a lead in a feature because I did the work and had my materials locked and loaded. Jen Rudolph is not lying in the slightest, it’s about the work and the marketing. I’m living proof of that. I only felt that I had to give credit where credit was due because without these three incredible women I would have never gotten to this point. Thank you to them and this incredible community for all the support. It’s only up from here!!!"

Hey, everyone! My name is Michaela and I'm an intern at AGR. I literally haven't been on FB for months but I felt compelled to come on here and just let you know how incredible Natalie Roy 's Activated Actor class is just from an observer's perspective. PURE MAGIC.
Natalie is such a gifted teacher and intuitively guides each actor with such love and support. I cannot tell you how amazing it was to watch every single person blossom within minutes. Minutes! Like, complete transformations that one expects to maybe achieve after a full semester of ongoing training. Everyone was so supportive and encouraging of each other, too, and there was such an incredible, playful, loving energy in that room.
If you were thinking about taking her Activated Actor class, I highly encourage you to do so! I am planning to do so, myself. :)
