How to be a Fearless Actor

Remove Negative Thinking

Audition with Unlimited Courage, Risk, & Joy

Bring Your Passion into Your Work


Do you get nervous on-set or in an audition?
 You’re not alone.
Every actor gets nervous, sometimes cripplingly so. While breezily dismissed as "stage fright," or "butterflies," attacks on our nervous system have long-standing, systemic ramifications to our ability to perform freely in front of the camera or an audience. It can impede creativity, destroy confidence and set you on a path of early-career burnout.

No matter your level of training, your technique is filtered through your mind. This class begins a deep dive by scientifically identifying what is happening to your body & mind during these anxious moments. Learn cutting-edge neuroscience-based techniques to help quell, control, and release these attacks on your body and thinking. 

Taught by working actor Actor Bill Coelius who suffered from debilitating performance anxiety, while booking roles on shows from The Office to Criminal Minds, as well as booking over 50 national commercials.
