"Viewpoints always makes me feel incredibly free and physically connected to not only myself, but to the world and earth as a whole. It reminds me to keep moving forward and challenge myself to find more! Viewpoints is beneficial because it is always happening, whether we acknowledge it or not. In working with text and/or on a project, the Viewpoints has allowed me to stop the rules I put on myself, which has helped me to find so much more in my work. I have also been able to break through 'made-up' boundaries that kept me from going beyond the surface of myself and the text." - Elizabeth Gordon
"Joy's energy and passion for the Viewpoints is so apparent in these workshops. This work has and continues to help free me in my work and every day life in such an immense way. And Joy's love, support, and encouragement only help this freedom to grow exponentially." -Marissa Galloway
"This workshop seduces the actor into heightened spacious-sensual-awareness, while detaching from the limitations and illusory constructions of the ego." - Shawn Goodling
"I feel so comfortable in my own skin and the weight of my existence. My growth as a person and an actress in these workshops has been exponential. It has given me the freedom to allow myself to make mistakes, to make the "wrong" decision, to "mess up", and in doing so has made all of those things impossible." - Ally Iseman
"Joy creates a safe environment to create and play in. This class is a delightful celebration of the connection between people that we as actors and peole so often miss. It had my wheels spinning in all directions - I had so much fun! Oh, and it was a hell of a workout." - Sue Gisser
"Before taking my solo play to NY, I enlisted Joy's help. She, through her insight and teaching talent, helped me raise my performance to a new level. Joy's coaching gets me out of my head--a dangerous place for any actor--and into my larger, instinctive, creative intelligence and the present moment. She has helped me come alive on stage and sieze the place within myself that made me want to be an actor in the first place."
