Great

Nathan was my director for a show in October 2013. His communication skills as a teacher, director, and collaborator made the process very enjoyable and also allowed me to grow as an actor. He is an experienced professional who excels in working with both seasoned actors and those who may never have performed before. I gained a lot from working with him and highly recommend Nathan to anyone seeking a super fun, informative, and productive acting student experience!

Kristin does an amazing job of meeting me where my abilities and needs are. She listens to what I want out of the lessons, but also challenges me to stretch beyond what I think I can do... and I'm often delightfully surprised. She also teaches me a great deal of music theory as we work through singing which is wonderful. Her guidance in helping me use my "instrument" properly has been so valuable. And she is very patient and intuitive in the process.

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting
Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un
