I began acting in community theatre when I was seventeen years old. It is something that I am absolutely passionate about. I have been fortunate enough to play some of the characters that I love; Nellie Forbush in "South Pacific"; Anita in "West Side Story"; Eliza Dolittle in "My Fair Lady" and Guinevere in "Camelot," to name a few. I have also been in two independent films.
I will be teaching two group lessons, one on Monday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm and one on Tuesday nights 7:00-8:00 pm. Monday nights will be for children and Tuesday nights for adults. I will be welcoming up to five students in each class. During my classes we will learn different acting techniques, among them improv and Stanislavski's Method.
My 30+ years of experience in community theatre and what I have learned from teachers and other actors is what I look forward to passing on to those who are as passionate about acting as I am.
Learn the basics for acting in a fun way! Each lesson will be modified to fit the student's personal level, from beginner to advanced. Lessons will include information on how to audition, how to find auditions, audition preparation, acting lingo, how to choose monologues, how to create an acting resume and head shot, and so much more. We will work on your monologues or anything you would like to bring in, in addition to everything listed. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.
I've been teaching acting for over 6 years and my students have gone on to use their skills in a wide variety of theatrical pursuits both on stage and on screen. Within the first few lessons you'll gain a better understanding of the art of story-telling, stage presence, movement and characterization. As time goes on you will learn how to fully develop a character and to portray the full range of human emotions. I specialize in classical theatre, musical theater and opera. I use a wide range of teaching materials including textbooks, poetry collections, classical and contemporary musical scores, as well as scripts and libretti. I provide my students with a comfortable and welcoming environment in which they can learn and grow. I am passionate about my subject and I love working with students of all ages and experience levels. I can't wait to meet you!
I was trained in the acting method but as an instructor of acting and theater I have developed a unique systematic approach acting the uses classic fundamentals and modern teaching skills to make the acting method easy.

Having a BA in psychology and being a yoga instructor I am very sensitive to adapting to the feel of my students. I want to hear your goals, and know what your expectations are. We are a team, and together we will help you reach where you want to go and have a fun time doing so. I am very creative and open for ideas. Also I am sensitive to shyness, something I struggled with in the past myself, so we will work together to find ways to tackle these cool challenges and help you grow as an artist.
