I'm so glad that I came across Mindful Acting while searching for onscreen acting courses online. I did the onscreen acting course and scene study course and I couldn't recommend both courses enough. Dan is such a brilliant teacher and director. I originally signed up to the onscreen acting course to develop my acting skills. However, this course offered so much more than that. I have learnt so much about myself, life and acting over the last eight weeks. It has made me feel more confident in everyday life and I feel so much more prepared going into auditions. I will definitely be signing up to more courses with Dan. I have really benefited from going to Dan's classes. He offers a safe environment with no judgement to explore different approaches to acting and it also gives you a chance to challenge yourself in a safe space and to find out who you are. If you're passionate about learning new things, developing new skills and open to find out more about yourself this is definitely the right class for you. This isn't just a 3 hour commitment every week. You need to be prepared for the classes which means that you have to use time outside of the lessons to prepare, connect with your acting partners, rehearse and put in the work. It really is true when they say you only get out what you put in but it is so worth it when you fully commit!

Dan is an absolutely amazing teacher. Every class we start of with meditation which is calming and also helps you focus on what’s important. Dan also explains the psychology behind our thoughts which is really helpful to work through your brains wiring. His classes are interactive, extremely informative and useful. You can implement each skill into personal, work as well as acting life. Each time I leave the lesson, I feel set for the week ahead and it really helps me get into a positive state of mind overall. Dan makes it so you have the freedom to do whatever you would like to do, helping you express yourself which is really nice when coming into a class. The classes are great if you are just starting up, starting over or just want to build your confidence and self awareness skills overall. I can’t thank Dan enough for being such an amazing, talented and calm teacher. I am really looking forward to carrying on the lessons.

I recently completed an on-camera scene study course, and it was an absolute game-changer for my acting skills. Under the guidance of our instructor, Daniel, I experienced significant growth and improvement in my craft. Daniel's wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field of acting shone through in every session. His insightful feedback and constructive criticism helped me refine my technique and approach to on-camera acting. Overall, I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to enhance their on-camera acting skills.

I had a fantastic experience learning here. Dan is such a wise person and a wonderful teacher who truly respects every single student and teaches based on their current level of skills. The classes here are always in such a great atmosphere that everyone can feel welcomed and safe. Emotions are valued here, and you are allowed to just be yourself. I learned so much from Dan and his class and met many great people here. I really look forward to every session.

Dan’s classes are a calm time and space in a non-judgemental setting to explore my mind, how I think and learn new techniques about how to be mindful. I couldn’t recommend Dan and his expertise enough, as the mindfulness meditation he leads the group in, is the foundation for all the acting he teaches me about. First, for me, is to become a better version of myself through bringing authenticity, then I can be myself in my acting. Dan is friendly, approachable and highly skilled with tonnes of knowledge and acting techniques I learn from every week.

I absolutely love this class, whether you want solid acting training or you want to explore mindfulness with an experienced guide, this is the place for you. There is never any judgement or pretentiousness. I always walk away from the class with a broader mind than when I walked in. Love it!

Thanks so much for your words Sam, it's always such a joy to have you in class! I look forward to many more :)

Actually, Dan puts you in a state of ease, clarity and buoyancy. Beginning the session with a light meditation places you in your mind for observation but immediately into the room, then, for some honest and personal acting practices. The only mistake I’ve made in this situation was not getting involved sooner. Watch for your first time if you must, though getting stuck in right away will host no regrets. Only a hunger for more. Dan is sensitive to what makes a good actor, he is sensitive to the complex workings of the mind. To be in his company is to be in good hands. You will see for yourself what kind of actor you want to be, merely by just hearing his words of wisdom! Props to the man, it ain’t a bad two hours at all!

Dan is amazing! I was at a bit of a loss as to how to rebuild my confidence after drama school and finding Dan and Mindful Acting could not have been a better solution! Every class pushes you to be better and kinder to yourself. Scene study, weekly drop ins and one to one all have the same level of structure and professionalism. It is truly a safe space to explore and create!

It's a pleasure working with Dan. As someone with no previous acting experience whatsoever, I was expecting to be overwhelmed, but that never happened. His approach to teaching is very welcoming and the overall energy is always friendly and comforting.

I think Dan is a genius! He is so knowledgeable and insightful. He has a calm manner, gives clear instructions and gives you the space to process everything. He will try different exercises and tactics to make sure you hit emotional beats. I really recommend him especially if you want to stretch yourself and explore your emotional range.
Reply from Mindful Acting 2023.09.06
Aww thanks Leah! Such sweet words! I can't wait to see it when you're finished shooting!

Dan is amazing at knowing exactly the exercise or advice to give when you're stuck on something. The Screen scene study really helped give me confidence and technical awareness in front of a camera. I'll definitely be returning in due course!
