Acting is all about experiencing what life has to offer. With decades of experience acting in professional and informal roles, I have so much experience to draw upon to help you find what works for you and your dreams of acting. Each of us has different talents, strengths and weaknesses, and all of our qualities can be utilized to explore the multifaceted art of acting. I can help you see and better understand what you bring to the table so that we can hone your skills, focus your attention and intention, and even figure out how to turn any weaknesses into powerful crafting tools.

My background in Psychology gives me excellent insight into the rich playground of character development and the ability to help you find the characters within you, even the ones you never would have imagined you could be. I have the gift for making the path of learning to act a seriously playful journey that can help you reach your goal, whether they are to entertain, inform, enrich, or just

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

About Jeremy

Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to acting, I can teach you what it takes to be an actor and how to bring a character to life. Do you need to prepare for an audition? Do you want to learn about the business of acting? Script analysis? I can help. I

After my first film audition, in as many years, it was quite evident I needed an acting instructor. For months, I looked high and low to find the right one. I wanted an instructor who could challenge me, yet in a nurturing manner. An instructor who can speak confidently about the craft. Above all, an instructor you look forward to seeing every session. Jeremy Kruse is all that and then some.

Within weeks of pairing up, my acting style/delivery is far more conversational. Plus, I’m more at ease when working to find the true essence of a character to develop and make my own.

I always walk away from Jeremy’s sessions learning something new. Jeremy’s constant encouragement has propelled my confidence, as an actor, to another level.

Initially, I wasn’t really into the idea of taking acting classes via FaceTime. The idea sounded so impersonal and potentially distracting, not with Jeremy. It's as if he's working with you, face-to-face, in a studio.

In addition to acting, Jeremy has been so supportive with my first attempt in writing a screenplay. He's such a creative influence.

The secret is out, Jeremy Kruse is the "Best Instructor Ever"! Working with him makes my dreams of becoming an accomplished actor a reality. Thanks Jeremy!

Jeremy is great! He's super personable and down to earth, and he never makes you feel like you've screwed up. He gives good feedback and is very knowledgeable. He's always open to answer any questions I have, too. Really great guy!
Timothy
I love these lessons! I look forward to them every week. Jeremy is a cool down to earth guy and is easy to talk to which really helps if you're new to this kind of thing. He gives good feedback that really makes you see things from the outside in.

My daughter started taking virtual classes with Amy a few months ago, and she loves it. Amy always comes in very prepared and helps my daughter improve her technique. My daughter is 9 years old and always looks forward to class. She wants to be a professional dancer when she's older, and Amy is helping her improve her strength and technique, while also keeping it fun and interesting.

I love my classes with Amy! I was nervous to try ballet, because I'm an adult who has never tried dance before...but she made me feel so comfortable and I'm achieving my health goals. I take class with her once a week virtually and it's the best workout, and also so fun. Would recommend to anyone!

Choral blending and harmonies build the strength to a great choir. Light music theory with group vocal coaching will be the core of my teaching style. I can arrange music for any group size. Being eclectic allows me to teach you how to make music in any genre.
