I've taught around the world, blending mainstream and avant garde methods. I've had the pleasure of assembling a great team and am excited to teach this new, integrated acting class in London.

    "Atkins’ technique is one of the first cohesive actor training systems to incorporate the framework of the Viewpoints. I have formed a tight bond with Atkins over several years based on his unique ability to understand the depth of the Viewpoints and discuss the practices and philosophy, extending my own comprehension of my work."Mary Overlie, Creator of The Viewpoints
