I've been a working actor and educator for over 10 years. I have had success both as an actor and an educator using elements of Practical Aesthetics and Viola Spolin's theater games to prepare for and understand script, character work and physical awareness. I work with children and adults to develop greater agility and have more fun on stage!
Acting students will receive instruction customized for their individual needs and skill level, drawing on a variety of techniques, including Linklater (physical and vocal work), Stanislavski, Meisner, and Grotowski, Shurtleff, among others. Students can work privately on audition skills, including monologues and cold reading, as well as scene work, character building and basic principles of acting. The first step to great acting is a free body and voice, allowing full expression of of emotional life of the character!
Whether it's working on a new monologue, understanding the structures/rules of drama, or finding a new character, I can help you!
I have been involved in several productions, and have extensive acting experience. I am able to help my students study their characters, and realize a wide range of acting choices.
I teach all aspects of acting for the camera and the stage including:
The Artistic Side: script analysis, character choices, specificity, strong objectives & verbs, being in the moment, spontaneity, connection, intuition, imagination, taking risks, and audition technique for both on-camera and for theatre.
The Psychological Side: dealing with anxiety & stage fright, listening skills, focus & concentration, trusting yourself, being vulnerable, tapping into and expressing all emotions.
The Business Side: career advice, goal setting, getting an agent, developing your niche, marketing materials, union vs. non-union, promoting yourself & networking.
