"Let's go on a journey together to explore the full extent of your talent. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced actor, there are always new techniques to learn, new ways to explore character and ideas that will fill up your arsenal of skills. I love the fact that technology allows us to connect around the world and for me to share my knowledge with you. No matter your age, it is never too early or too late to follow your dreams and to find your Tribe. Acting will improve your confidence, teach you to heal your trauma and have fun living in another character's shoes. If not today... then when? See you in class!"

Ian Gareth Hadfield
Ian Gareth Hadfield has been involved in the Entertainment Industry for close to 30 years. At school, he was the Presto Theatre Club Actor of the Year; and the spark was born. His tertiary education included Drama, Dance and Literary Theory. But Ian knew instinctively that there was more to performance than learning about the Greeks and this lead to a lifetime quest to find methods and techniques that are authentic, modern and pragmatic. As a performer, Ian has appeared in musical theatre in 'My Fair Lady' and 'Oliver!'. He has written and performed one-man-plays, as well as two and three-handers such as 'Betta Resplendes' and 'Fraud'. He has directed theatre productions such as 'for colored girls/ who have considered suicide', 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and 'Macbeth'. On television he has appeared in the television series 'Black Sails' and also in a series of music videos for Warner Music Germany. But, most importantly, Ian has trained and coached hundreds of aspirant actors of all ages which is his passion - seeing young performers grow and become the best versions of themselves. Ian is also a certified Life Coach, NLP Practitioner, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Mindfulness Coach.

What If I Am Shy?
In this course, you can work in the privacy of your own home. I have created the Facebook Private Group so that we can share our experiences as actors and actresses.

" This course is a result of my lifetime's work. The content that you will learn here is unparalleled in other teaching, particularly from a short online course. I wanted to present my technique in a way that is accessible to people from around the world. But, more than this, I want my students to know the inside secrets of how the Industry works. So that they can find their own forum to tell their stories. This course addresses the Art and Business of Acting. It is designed to be interactive and fun. What more could you want? "
