"Movement which has inspired a whole generation of artists"

Jen Waldman is the kind of teacher who makes you wonder what the hell all the other teachers you had before her were doing. In well over a decade of taking classes, workshops, seminars, you name it, I can count on one hand the instructors with whom I wholeheartedly implore fellow artists to share their energy and time, and Jen is among the top.

When I left college, Jen freed me from the disorientation of perfectionism. When I got my first Broadway show, she was one of the few personal phone calls I made to share the good news. As I’ve expanded my pursuits into television and other professional fields, I find myself approaching my work with the same principles with which she fuels her studio: utilizing my creativity; craving risk (which once you get a taste of, you can’t go back); and moving past my doubts, feeling the fear, and... those who know her know the rest by heart.

What started as an exploration for a few dozen students in a shabby studio off the West Side Highway has blossomed into a movement which has inspired a whole generation of artists. Have you tried it, yet? Need I say more? Go now.
