Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.

So, what is improv? Improvisation, or improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up in the moment. Often improvisers will take a suggestion from the audience, or or draw on some other source of inspiration to get started.

Improvisation, in my opinion, is one of the most important talents that an actor can acquire. I feel that it is essential in method acting and, as a theatre performer who understands that anything can happen on stage in front of a live audience, it is a tool of survival. Improv can also unlock our ability to be natural and, in turn, more believable.

Last but not least, an actor who has mastered the art of improv will be more confident and less nervous on stage.

I've been teaching Juggling for 10 years. I have juggled 9 balls, 6 clubs and 7 rings. I have spent hundreds of hours practicing and have a vast stock of tricks. I can teach anyone how to 3 balls juggle within 15 minutes. After that, I can teach any tricks within a month or so of practice, depending on the amount of practice one is willing to do outside of meetings. If the student leaves the path of training up to me, then the first big trick will be Mill's Mess. The progression from there will be to learn site swap notation and and 4 balls. After that, I can will start diversifying the lessons with learning club and ring juggling. After a few months, the student will be able to pass 6, 7, and 8 clubs with another individual, juggling 5 balls, 5 rings, and 4 clubs as well as several tricks for each. I can't wait to start teaching tossing objects around with you!
