Beginner acting, beg to intermediate -voiceover, voice acting
I pull from the multitude of performance techniques I have gathered as a global performance artist and instructor over the past 20 years. My approach is encouraging and gentle, as I guide you in finding your own authentic expression, and focus on bringing to light what makes you and your character unique, and therefore irresistibly engaging. I work with a combination of both concrete and abstract concepts which helps to identify the methods you best respond to, and also illuminates various avenues in which you can amass your full potential as an artist, allowing you to truly shine on stage, screen, and in your auditions!
I've been an Acting Coach for more than 10 years and my students have gone on to sign with notable agents and managers & book leading roles. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to BE and not ACT, and as time goes on you'll be able to break down a script and understand the character. I specialize in method acting, using my own experience as an actor and student myself. I provide all the script material necessary for our sessions.
I am an internationally experienced director/producer and have taught at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, American University, The Shakespeare Theatre, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, University of Maryland - College Park, University of Nebraska - Lincoln, and University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, Fu Ren Catholic University in Taipei, The Globe Theatre in London, Institute of Dramatic Art in Tokyo, and The International Theater Academy Norway in Oslo.
The work we'll be focusing on will include but is not limited to:
•Working on scenes for a specific audition or role to make the performance more exciting and memorable.
•Cold reading and sight reading skills improvement.
•Refining a performance for further development of a character for a callback.
•Focusing on specific blocks the actor may have in other class work or performance work that is preventing him or her from freeing up emotionally.
