The Balance

When a specific actor meets a specific role - a career happens.

Tom's students range from the most accomplished TV, Film and Theater professionals, to passionate hobbyists who are just beginning to explore the world of acting, directing and storytelling. Tom is unparalleled in his ability to work with actors of all levels and transform them into powerful, dynamic and moving performers.

Hi! We're Tom and Emily

Artistic Director and Executive Director of the Tom Todoroff Studio - a Nationally Accredited acting school based in NYC, Hollywood and worldwide (online) where we train, empower and fully prepare actors for professional careers!

Tom's been producing, directing, acting and coaching actors for film, tv and theater for over 40 years, including Samuel L. Jackson, Liam Neeson, Bob Hoskins, Sasha Alexander, Dakota Johnson among many others you can check out here!

We created the Saturday Workshop to provide an artistic home for actors. Becoming an actor takes a village - no one does it alone. This is the most joyful, passionate, intentional way to remain connected to your craft and ensure you are not only maintaining, but continually honing your skill set as an actor.

LET'S GET STARTED

 

So, what's the Saturday Workshop?

Well, it's the fun and the love of your high school drama club (for adults)...on steroids...to the google power!

Actors, Directors, Writers, Producers, Educators and Creative Souls from all walks of life and from all across the globe meet on a weekly basis to study with Tom Todoroff via Zoom. Frequent appearances by highly accomplished guest artists! Attendees are welcome to observe or request to perform, take notes and participate in Q&A sessions!

Becoming a skilled actor is very similar to becoming a skilled dancer, musician or athlete. It takes repetition and rehearsal on an ongoing basis with a mentor and peers who challenge you to keep growing.

Too often we meet actors who think, because they completed a degree in theater, they're fully 'trained' and no longer need to go to the proverbial 'gym'. But, can you think of a pro tennis player who doesn't work out regularly? Or a concert pianist who doesn't touch their instrument every day?

When you do the work, you get work!

Acting - like dance, music and athleticism - is a perishable skill set, meaning - when you stop going to class, you get rusty real quick. That's inevitably when a really big audition comes your way! You may suddenly scramble to get coached and catch up on all the work you haven't been doing, but there's still this voice in your head saying "I wish I had more time to prepare!"

Why not skip the drama and just stay in shape? So when opportunities come your way, you don't feel nervous - you feel excited and confident - because you've been putting in the work.

Craft + Commitment = Confidence & Career.

Remember to play!

Acting is the seemingly ordinary art of relaxation under extraordinary circumstances.  It's your job to be relaxed and have fun! The approach we teach is simple and visceral. All you need to begin is a passion for acting and a love of learning. Jump in the pool!

"This workshop isn't just about acting - it's about life and how our responsibility to ourselves and to our craft are eternally intertwined. "To Thine Own Self Be True." If we can face our life with truth, humor and passion, our acting will follow."

Daniel G

"I can say unequivocally the Saturday Workshop has been a lifesaver during this pandemic shut down. I feel I've learned more about acting in these last five months than in my entire lifetime."

Jagruti P

"If you're dedicated to fast-forwarding your career, you must attend this online acting class. It will guide you to understanding yourself and the business."

OK, so when will you be ready? When will your ducks be lined up? (you have ducks?) When will you have oodles of cash in your account? When will it be the "right" time?

If the last year has taught us anything, it's that - all we have is now. This moment. There's no day but today

If you think you deserve it, you're right! (the reverse is also true).

It's just a decision. A choice-less choice!
