What is the teaching and Eric Stone specifically as a teacher have done for you to contribute to your growth as an actor, as an artist and as a human being.
The teaching from Eric Stone has definetly provided me with a different perspective of my life and my actions. I have found the class to be more of a motivational and inspirational course in life rather than just an acting class. The teaching is helping me learn to be more empowered and has helped me realize I can be in full control of who I am and what I am capable of. In regards to acting- I have learned to feel more relaxed on-stage. I feel I am also learning to not hold back on-stage and to "let things happen" more and more.

How has your life changed as a result of the teaching?
The knowledge learned in acting class has carried over into my everyday life as well. I am beginning to have this sense that life can change- that it I am capable of making it different. I am able to apply many of the ideas/concepts learned and discussed in class to situations in life- though at this point I am no master of it. I still struggle day to day with these new concepts and hope to continue to learn from them and apply them to better my life.

Talk about your personal experience of this approach to acting.
I was very surprised of Eric's method of acting when I first joined the group. I had predicted that I would be able to hide in the mask of emotions and responses of the character. I have learned instead the importance of the actor's emotional well-being in the performance/portrayance of the character. It has definetley made me in a sense more aware of what I project when on-stage but has also made me realize that I don't need to force emotions and feelings when they are not present- resulting, in what I believe is a much more "believable" character.

What are the accomplishments?
Being more relaxed on-stage. Better at trusting my own instincts. More open to character/scene interpretation, give more of myself while onstage, learning to focus on and listen to another character, better at handling constructive critisism.

Could you describe to a newcomer what the experience of being a student of Eric Stone is is like?
To a newcomer: Being a student in this class is first and foremost a lot of fun. You will definetly learn your weak spots but you will also find your strengths. You will get out of it what you put into it.

Additional Comments:
I look forward to Eric's class every week. They have given the great opportunity of helping me figure out who I am as an actor and a person.
