Private Improv Acting Teacher

Improv is a great learning tool for team building, spontaneity, listening, being present, speaking to groups, communicating one on one, saying yes and so much more. It helps that each game played builds upon the next to reinforce the learning.

Improvisers fail forward. We embrace "failure." We have to fail in order to succeed. If we aren't failing, we aren't trying.

What you get:
Team Building / Laughter Workshop
Bring the team together in an interactive environment that fosters positive thinking and collaboration.

Improv Troupe Direction - for improv troupes who need an outside eye for notes, direction and ideas for marketing your troupe. At the end of the session, you will have new games and ideas to move your troupe forward.

Christine will help each student become more present, less self-conscious and will get them excited about failing.

Expect to leave this class feeling more confident and empowered.

Christine is committed to providing a safe and courageous ...

Working with Christine has been nothing short of an amazing experience. 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 is the BEST!
As a beginner improver, I am so lucky I found Christine! She has taught me so many valuable tools that have improved my scene work and my decision making. In addition, she always addresses my specific issues during each lesson and even emails me with advice and fun GIFS! (no, not "gifts", but graphic interchange formats! :D Every class is fun and lighthearted and I look forward to it each week.

My lessons are virtual, but she is still very effective at participating in scenes and even encouraged my fellow classmate to join me during our lessons. We can't say enough great things about each class!!

So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

What can I say, that I miss Ms. Nikisha so much!!! She is one of the most kindest, humble, caring person I have met. She is honest and truly loves what she does! She has thought me so much from skincare, makeup application, nutrition and pose techniques, ect. She takes her time to help us understand how important all these things are within the entertainment industry. One of the best instructors!!!

First off, I have to say that Ms. Niki is an amazing person. Extremely patient, understanding, and still gets the job DONE. She did my makeup for my headshots and really showed me how to bring out my natural beauty. Awesome teacher, makeup artist, and person. ❤️

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

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

"LK was great. She took me through several exercises, then gave me homework to do for my next class. She made me feel very comfortable. 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"
