“We brought this work to our theatre company, “Kinky Fish”, and really hope your ears were burning. We invoked your name and the inspirational qualities of your workshop a number of times.”S. Scattergood, London U.K.
“Stephen’s knowledge and passion for his craft is infectious. He is at once a guide and an engaged audience. Every class offered a new opportunity to perform, a new chance to deepen confidence and relationships and a new opportunity to capitalize on artistic urges. This has helped me immeasurably in my career. I always left Stephen’s class recharged, inspired, and a few inches off the ground.”Chelsey Reist (Harper in Warner Bros. THE 100)
