WallByrd's foundation rests in the universal human need for stories.  We believe that an act of creativity begins with the need to "speak", to give to another something of comfort, awareness, laughter, warning, or simply an acknowledgment of a shared experience grounded in space and time.  Our belief in the gift of stories ignites in us not only a passion for all we bring to the stage, but drives our dedication to those who seek mastery in all creative spheres.

WallByrd Studio is a new platform dedicated to promoting the health, longevity, and mastery of the artist, specifically those in the performance fields.  

Acting is the medium of the human form presented in space-time.  The care and control of the body and mind are essential for the actor to continue developing as both craftsman and artists.  Mastery in an arts goes beyond the simple act of academic learning, and represents a life long endeavor and investment.  We at WallByrd seek to provide resources, workshops, and further development opportunities to performers in the Rochester area.
