Such an amazing teacher. Andrew has a total command on his field. I feel myself lucky that my skills are nourished by such and amazing acting teacher. He sees your possible ability about which even you are not aware and make it come out as a best in you. His humbleness and giving is unique and his approach is all rare. His techniques made me learn about so many things. His different exercises made me a better learner. He shines and grooms every aspect of your talent. I definitely am is a better actor now, there are many good words I can write about him but he is a genuine acting teacher.

The best teacher ever! I appreciate Andrew taking the time to listen and teaching me things that I am not aware of. I have learned so much about acting and how to continue to improve my skills. Thank you!"

Andrewis a fantastic teacher that unlocks your true potential! Only serious actors should go to Joe, since he will not coddle you like most other acting coaches.

In just 1 class you WILL be acting in at least 3 scenes, AT LEAST. He will unlock your full potential and sometimes that means digging deep into yourself, making you learn or confront some possibly scary things about yourself.

Despite this hard working down-and-dirty nature, he is an extremely warm, kind and fun person.

His critiques are genius and he always seems to know exactly what to say to make you understand and to help you.

I cannot recommend Joe more highly, he is amazing!

Dance culture has a tendency to be exclusive. But why? Everyone can dance, and everyone can learn to dance - we just need to know how our bodies are meant to move and what they are capable of doing! Dance is an art form whose pedagogy is passed down from teacher to teacher. As studies of biomechanics and kinesiology evolve, so should the approach to teaching dance. We know that not every “body” looks, moves or is built the same. With new developments in science, we can now teach dance with a more biomechanically safe method that allows the art form to be more accessible to all bodies. Not only will this allow accessibility to all dancers but also provides longevity to dancers.

I offer lessons that are designed to be achievable by any and every body - from non-dancers, to advanced dancers. The lessons are taught through a biomechanical approach that allows for accommodations and safe execution for all bodies and structural limitations while still staying true to the aesthetic of the ...

"Zach has the best critical eye I know. As a trained actor himself, he understands what it's supposed to be and guides you there without ever preventing you from being authentically yourself. He also brings his director's eye to self-tapes, elevating the scene by shaping the frame. The way we set up the camera for a battle scene allowed me to fully commit as an actor without worrying about the technical aspects of taping."

How important is it for aspiring actors to hire an acting coach? Find out in this guest post by New York, NY acting teacher Stephanie B... So let's assume you are an actor in NYC or LA - running around auditioning like mad, but not really getting too many call-backs. And not really getting cast, either!
