Improv and comedy are a couple of my BIG favs! Improv is so freeing and is essential for helping the new actor grow. For experienced actors, it can bring your performance to life like never before and really help you break out of patterns that are holding you back. Together we'll play with some of the best improv techniques and I'll give you "home play", games and exercises you can practice with friends.

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

Just had my first lesson with Hunter and I really enjoyed it. Although I was nervous trying out acting for the first time, she made me feel comfortable. We did some script reading and warming up word exercises that helped. I look forward to my next lesson with her.

Because the lessons taught are custom-tailored to the interests and skill level of each student, you are guaranteed to have a fun lesson.

I'm Dan, a teacher who firmly believes that, "You should learn what you want to learn." Relying on experience gained as both a Junior and Adult member of Magic Castle, I bring only the best tried-and-tested material that you, and your audiences, will love. If you wish to have a specific focus in the art of magic:
-Peformance (styles varying from close-up to strolling magic)
-Props (cards, coins, etc.) and Management
-Theory (stages and forms of rhetoric)
-Misdirection

You've come to the right place.

NOTE: Because I have a firm belief in my lessons planned, and aim for transparency with each student, It should be noted that:

"In addition to the lesson, some lessons may be accompanied by a set of notes ."

These notes will help to facilitate good practice, and cover any minor/specific issues in regards to technique and/or ...

5 Acting Warm Ups & Games to do Before an Audition

Being in the entertainment industry is not much different from being in the sports world. In addition to some natural talent and interest, a huge overlap with both industries is the time spent honing your craft. Of course regular practice is a necessary evil, but come race or audition day, our minds and bodies still need to be prepared for what’s about to happen. Just as we see athletes spending time stretching and warming up before a performance, it’s mandatory that actors warm up before …
