Master Your Shakespeare with Elke

My teaching philosophy is rooted in the idea to not just “get out of your head” but be in your body as well. I am interested in the actor’s process and sense of play. I guide my students to approach, develop, and refine their craft with a fearless consciousness by learning to identify and honor habits and patterns so new choices can emerge. My students take ownership in their own journey of play to speak text with authority and move with ease. I encourage them to embrace their glorious failures and glorious successes so they may utilize these experiences as a resource for further reflection and refinement of their craft’s journey.
