“ Marjo-Riikka has this special gift in knowing how to inspire you to reach your utmost potential. She will help you work through your creative blocks, right when the nerves come up or the acting block hits. Marjo-Riikka is filled with this special kind of light, that will make yours shine brighter too!”

In no other performing art is the instrument so frequently overlooked and under developed as in acting.
You need to fine-tune your acting instrument daily, just like you would fine-tune your guitar before playing it.
If you develop it, your “body-imagination” can be your best friend and will always be at your service.
Stage fright and acting blocks are just unfocused or misplaced energy.
Everything is possible in your audition, if you know how to concentrate on the helpful things, and where from invite your inspiration.
