Private Improv Acting Teacher

I'm going to tell you the SECRET to being the quality of actor or actress that makes millions of people flock to theaters and gather in front of television sets in order to experience your work. Teachers and coaches all over the world have developed techniques and styles to give actors their best chance at being cast by directors and producers and to help them achieve their best work. What they FAIL to teach actors ( its not their fault! they were failed by their teachers before them!) IS... Well, that's where you and I come in. I PROMISE you. If you make a commitment of one month, and at least one class a week... you will learn this secret. It is not actually a secret because all the most talented actors know it. They wouldn't be able to move you the way they do if they didn't. From Tom Cruise to Meryl Streep. to Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt. They share THIS knowledge and they have built their careers and become famous stars for the way in which it allows them to shine. I spent

She is great, just great. 1st course yet she immediately helped me understand what were the real issues and how to tackle them. Now I feel confident to pass in front of an audience, because I know I will be heard and I will be understood!

I had to learn an Irish dialect for a big audition I was called in for last minute. My friend suggested Erin to help with dialect coaching and audition coaching, and man, I'm so grateful. With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!

I have worked with Erin on several occasions, because she is so wonderful at her job! She has helped me to prepare for numerous auditions, many of which have gone very well as a result. She is an incredible actor herself, and she uses her talent and expertise to help me be the best actor I can be. Finding my super objective in a monologue or scene, the different tactics, focus, awareness, groundedness... these are all things she has helped me to do to strengthen my own work. She is down to earth and open, which makes working with her really easy and comfortable. Performing my work in front of somebody else can be very difficult, because I often question what the viewer will think of me. Not only does Erin help me fight that fear, she helps me find the gratitude and joy in getting to perform. I highly recommend Erin as an acting coach! She’s fantastic!

I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

Online Improv Acting Teacher

I have been an actor and director for over 20 years in a number of markets, including Seattle, Austin and Los Angeles. I am currently repped by Heyman Talent Agency in Columbus, OH.

I have coached actors and those who want to become actors for 15 years. I help you develop your potential into something tangible through learning about your dreams and goals. I tailor my style to each individual, to help them achieve the heights they want to reach as a performing artist.

I have trained L.A. actors, Ohio prison actors, comedians, musicians, juveniles, groups of actors, individuals and folks who have never taken an acting class before. I use a combination of recognized acting methods in tandem with the artforms that move you, to help you develop your own unique style.

I can teach just as easily online as I can in person. I can come to you, or we can work together with an ocean between us!

About Alexandra

Acting and performance is like breathing, for me. I would not be the person I am today without it. It has been my outlet, my therapy, and my teacher. I am not expecting everyone I teach to approach it in the same way, but that's how it is for me. As an instructor, the joy and illumination I see

Online Improv Acting Teacher

I'm an experienced Teacher with over 10 years of coaching. My clients have gone on to be not only series regulars (Past and current) but stars in award winning films. What I love is watching a client go from not knowing to mastering.

My methodology is influenced by legendary Uta Hagen, my own acting coach, the renowned Roy London, and my contemporary mentor, the incredible Howard Fine. My personal experience as a young actor inspired me to create the kind of class I desired as a young actor, taught with respect for an actor’s intelligence and the “master” within them, empowering them with the tools, techniques, and discipline they need to succeed as professional actors.

My focus is scene study with the emphasis on script analysis and AUDITION TECHNIQUE. I’ve been called a “Actor Whisperer.” My passion and gift is working with actors of all ages and backgrounds which is why I work with them exclusively!

I have learned so much about the industry and have received so much insight on what it takes to be a great actress/comedian/etc. When I first started out, I had no idea what direction I wanted to take or where to start. Christine was extremely patient and came equipped with a roadmap to getting started. She takes every lesson at the pace that works best for me. She has helped me to set and define clear goals of what I want to accomplish and has made excellent use of our time together. I chose Christine because of previous reviews and she has lived up to every word of what others have said. It's been a blast and I plan to continue developing my skill set with her help!"

"Christine pays attention to the needs and level of understanding of each student. The ways she has taken time to instruct me, have not only taken me to another level, but then she'll turn around and explain it to the class, taking us all to another level as a group. She does in one class what some instructors I've had in NYC couldn't do in a month. She's patient and a great listener, which helps make her instruction so clear and incredibly effective. Including classes I've taken in LA, NYC, Indiana and Florida, Christine Alexander is easily the best Improv instructor I've ever had."

The reason I was wanting to take classes in the first place is because I am always being told that people cannot hear me when I talk. Also I have always wanted to take acting classes. Please let me know if you think this is the best class to take if I try to pursue Theater Acting, or Film Acting in the future.
Thank You, Laura Boys RPH"
