Master of Fine Arts Degree in Acting from Actors Studio Drama School
I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working actors! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!
Currently offering ONLINE LESSONS ONLY due to the pandemic. I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and

Crystal has increased my daughterâs self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those âteenâ years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughterâs love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystalâs professional and caring teaching style.

She not only gave me a solid foundation to build upon, but also provided me with a deep understanding about how powerful and personal voice work really is. Together we have worked on both the inner and outer aspects of my voice. After only a short time, I have seen a huge improvement in my vocal projection, breathing, presence and confidence.
She has a wealth of knowledge which has continued to give me new insights every lesson. If it isn't obvious- I highly recommend Alexandra."

In a perfect world, acting would be enough. We would just train and perform well and the jobs would just come. We know that is not the case.

In this article, we are going to look at why the Actor Bio is structured the way it is and write one as we go. By the end you will not only have a working example for reference, but a be …
