Sarafina (Vecchio — Beginning Monologue Online) is a joy and I'm so grateful for her dedication to our success and her open approach. This is my second class with her and she is kind and inclusive and incredibly supportive of everyone in the class. She has a real skill at making people of every skill level feel like they are making progress, and as a result, I've seen improvement in myself and everyone else in the class. While not soft-pedaling how difficult the industry can be, she still makes work and life and the theater and the business feel achievable with hard work.
Another thing she did so well in this class, and much appreciated by me, was to give really great monologues that matched her understanding of me and reflected not only my type, but my preference for the kind of monologue I wanted to explore. She even sourced the original play when I couldn't find it. I wish to be more like her in classes I lead.
