Acting auditions and drama school auditions offer some of the most challenging experiences for any actor, no matter how experienced. Actors are subjected to a process that is imperfect at the best of times and downright cruel at the worst. Nevertheless, they are a staple of the performing arts industry and they are not going away any time soon. So we better learn to turn them to our favour.

No matter how many times one steps forward to speak in front of others, a rush of energy will always flood our bodies beforehand. What we learn from mindfulness is that this isn’t just to be expected, but to be embraced. This felt energy, which is simply an expression of our internal biology, is a gift that we can learn to harness to our own advantage. By learning to develop tolerance and calm alongside the energy without trying to suppress or get rid of it, we cultivate that elusive state of presence.

Are you curious about mindfulness but aren't sure where to start? Maybe you tried meditation but didn't really get it? Or perhaps you already meditate but are looking for fresh guidance and direction?

Despite what some may think, mindfulness isn't for a select few, it's for everyone! If you think it's not for you, chances are you've just not been explained it properly in a way that makes sense for your mind. Mindfulness training utilises the inherent skills and capacities you already have and enhances them with engaged and enjoyable practice.

Testimonials

“Daniel is a life saver! Not only is he super smart and insightful, he also helped me find a new way of working. I always felt way more confident and prepared after coaching with him and he made the process fun! He’d often make discoveries in the text I would never have thought of which opened up new possibilities for me and made everything richer. If I ever felt confused by a scene, I knew I could count on him to shed new light on it and help me figure it out. I’m stronger for having worked with him and grateful for his guidance.”

"What has struck me most about my time with Daniel is his willingness to help actors through the often perilous and frightening terrain of performance, without judgment, aided by a skill set as comprehensive and accessible as anything I could have hoped to come across. Daniel’s approach is clear, concise and very powerful. After every session I feel like I’ve gained some new insight into myself as a performer, or have been able to grasp some previously unknown depths of a text. A tremendously encouraging and trustworthy acting coach who will do amazing things for anybody that trains with him."

Anytime I enter a rehearsal room now I use the tools that I was taught by Dan Bradford. Taking his classes completely changed, not only how I approach a text and performance but also, how I conduct myself in a rehearsal room. Not to mention the fact, that Dan is a wonderful teacher and a brilliant force to be in a rehearsal room with.

I did a scene study with Dan back in October 2019 and I can’t recommend enough. Dan’s insightful knowledge, advice & direction helped me enormously. The techniques I was introduced to in this scene study still inform my acting preparation today. When I started the scene study, I had low confidence in my abilities following 2 years of acting struggles since graduating Drama School (as most graduates face!). I found the classes a fun and safe space to really let go and play with the scenes, allowing me to rebuild some of my lost confidence. I think the classes re-instilled my faith in my abilities, and helped me to think about my acting more positively, particularly in relation to other areas in my life. It helped me to start developing a better mindset for navigating the industry. I can’t thank Dan enough for how much he helped me, and I know for a fact that everyone else in the class felt the same. I will definitely be booking another class in the future !

I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants a challenge. Dan creates a safe atmosphere where you feel supported to be brave and to stay open. Exercises are tailored to each individual so you learn as much from watching others as from being directed yourself and come away with new and useful approaches.

I completed a scene study course with Daniel and have to say this guy makes you work hard! If you're serious about acting I suggest you try this teacher out. He creates a safe space for you to make mistakes, be vulnerable and move forward in a way in which you never explored before !! Dig deep and find new ways to look at script, a character and a scene and revel in the results you will achieve !!

After graduating from drama school, I was looking for a class that I could join that would be of that standard & thorough in its practice, something I could really get my teeth into & be able explore a character again. Daniels plethora or knowledge with good writing/plays and human behaviour was everything I could have wished for. I felt comfortable being able to explore within the space because of how the class was set up and felt extremely welcomed by the studios. There isn't a magic wand that makes you into a better actor but for you to take that journey & do the work & Daniel will help guide you to get the best out of your performance. I encourage any actor to give this 4 week Scene Study a go, it will only enhance your craft!
