THE DAVIS TECHNIQUE is the result of over 20 years of guiding and teaching actors to engage in their roles and careers with energy and focus. Yonda Davis has absorbed techniques and approaches that have proven to be very successful for many actors—some of them household names. The Davis Technique combines a vigorous exploration of character with positive psychology, instilling in the actor an awareness of how the interior and exterior process of thought and emotion meets in human behavior.
