Then join me in coming into your own greatness.
I am a professional actress and acting teacher with over 20 years experience in helping people to feel better about themselves. Through hands-on exercises, in a fun and safe environment, you will: release tension and blocks, brush up on public speaking, performance, and communication skills, improve interpersonal relationships, and acquire concrete relaxation tools.
Theme Based Workshops for Actors and Non-Actors
Working in groups, either privately formed or gathered from institutions, we collectively find a topic that the group will concentrate on. Through a variety of acting, writing, music, art, and movement exercises, participants explore their abilities and stretch their creative potential.
No prior professional experience is required.
The purpose of any workshop is always on self-expression, risk-taking, self-acceptance, self-esteem, confidence building and individual personal growth.
The class time is flexible, ranging form eight once-a-week sessions, to an intensive weekend workshop. All classes culminate in a one-time performance piece for the public.
Students of all ages are strongly encouraged to find their own voice, learn about themselves, and have fun in the process. No acting experience is required, though actors are welcome to participate.
Example of Theme-Based Workshop
Pridelines Youth Services “provides a safe and supportive safe space for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender youth and young adults ages 13-22 in Miami-Dade County.”
Creative Arts Enterprises and Lavender Footlights, a professional theatre company that concentrates on producing gay/lesbian themed plays, received a grant. I was hired as a director and workshop facilitator to collaborate with Pridelines Youth.
We met once a week for eight weeks, culminating in an evening performance wherein the youth shared their personal stories dealing with the theme of “Coming Out/Staying In.” This special event was the opening night for Lavender Footlights week long performance program. During the workshops many writing, music, and art projects were explored, which allowed these at-risk teens to begin to open up by sharing their difficult journeys with each other. The performance night was a huge success, freeing the students in redefining who they are and enhancing their self-esteem.
“Being involved in these classes gave me a sense of empowerment. Miriam helped me to learn about me, which gave me a sense of peace. After each class I felt a quiet calmness. I wish I had Miriam each morning to help me start my day.”
– Staci Katz, conservatory student
“Miriam’s gift is for enabling the actor to access the true raw emotions buried beneath the surface, so that they can be fully and authentically applied to the acting process.”
– Aki Miura, conservatory student
“I was a person locked within myself, Miriam provided me the key to my personal freedom.”
– Sharon Raye, conservatory student
“Taking classes with Miriam has really opened me up, both emotionally and physically. A personal weakness of mine is always, “playing it safe”, and being afraid to take risks. However, Miriam’s class challenged me to break comfort zones and just let go.”
– Phoebe Schaubhat, conservatory student
“I find that I am constantly drawing on the techniques that I learned from Miriam. The value of the relaxation techniques alone, made her classes worthwhile. Plus, we laughed a lot too!”
– Doug Williford, conservatory student and Artistic Director of Lavender Footlights Inc.
“Miriam Kulick’s workshops are hilariously fun and invigorating to the mind and body … but it’s the soul of her work that is so inspiring and leaves such an impact on all who participate. Miriam’s electrifying energy and passion for her work seems to seep through her pores, and it’s not until you’ve experienced her unique approach that you can fully understand what’s hiding below the surface. Her workshops somehow bring that out and by the time her class is over, you feel free and cleansed in a way you didn’t even know you needed… she is the BOMB!”
– Tammi Leader Fuller, Director Camp Bombshell of Miami Bombshells
“Thank you ever so much for providing me with an awesome day of “de-stressing”. Although I attended two of your sessions at our awesome “Camp Bombshell” weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it, I did not know what to expect for today’s workshop. What I experienced was a sense of relaxation, inner peace, and a much needed insight into my own feelings that I did not even know I had. The possibilities are endless. Thank you for your spirit.”
– Marlene Lieber, long term care administrator
“I don’t know how to thank you Miriam. Your workshop at Camp Bombshell was AMAZING!! I was bottling up so many feelings, and believe it or not, I haven’t been able to cry for a long time. My first session with Miriam, brought out so many emotions and for the first time in a long time I found myself crying, and it felt GREAT!!!”
– Gitta Birn, Director of Sales
