Hi! I play Marty on the Golden Globe winning show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I am a graduate of The Upright Citizens Brigade and have been teaching improv for 5 years. Improv is an incredible tool for freeing us to build and find exciting choices in all our work. Whether you're looking to strengthen your commercial, television, film, theater or public speaking techniques, you'll soon love leaping "without a net".

About Hunter
From the hit TV comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to drama at The Tony Award winning Steppenwolf Theater, my 20 year acting career has taught me many lessons to share. As a working writer/director this has only grown.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whether it's audition prep or personal development, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you to your goals ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fun on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

About Rebecca L.

Gilbert, AZ

View Full Profile

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

About Rebecca
Greetings!
I am currently a full time drama and art teacher at Lumos Arts Academy; a private school I have played a role in pioneering. I also created a Theater and Film Program at Experience Arts School where students ages 5- adult could take classes (group or private) or join an acting company for regular performance gigs. I also directed multiple musicals during this time. My company competed with the AZ Thespians and took home many superior scores.
Personally, I have been acting for 25 years in the Mid and Southwest, studied theater at UWOshkosh, Film at Scottsdale CC, improv with iO in Chicago, and Meisner with Kevin Phipps. I was part of a musical repertory company based in Utah for 8 months, traveled around the Phoenix valley performing in 8 different dinner theaters for 8 years, and have produced and directed multiple professiona
l music videos for Soundwaves Productions in Gilbert.
I believe that each actor learns differently, and the best way is to become well-rounded in your training to discover what works best for you. I have become very well trained in identifying strengths and weaknesses in actors, and will work with you on the best technique to suit your needs and style.

Classes I have created curriculum for/taught include:
Monologues
Auditioning for theater and film
Script Analysis
Beginning- Advanced Improv
Beginning- Advanced Scene Acting
Uta Hagen's Repertoire
Acting for Film
Voice and Diction
Music Video Creation
Musical Theater Acting/Dance

Rebecca is very well rounded, any question I threw at her she answered perfectly with examples to back it up. All our lessons felt very nonjudgmental which made it easy for me to push my limits and focus on acting itself. She is also really flexible on times and your focus during the lessons. Overall, Rebecca was a great teacher who really helped me get improve and get comfortable with my acting

I have been in several productions with Rebecca and each time she has stretched me as an actor and performer. Rebecca really pulls you into part of the production by being open to your ideas about the character and challenges you to really owen your craft on the stage and your professionalism behind and off the stage. She truly is a developer and loves to see individuals grow. I cannot recommend her enough.

What can I say, that I miss Ms. Nikisha so much!!! She is one of the most kindest, humble, caring person I have met. She is honest and truly loves what she does! She has thought me so much from skincare, makeup application, nutrition and pose techniques, ect.

I'm a Los Angeles based TV and Film actress visiting the area until June 1. I will be doing some special acting classes (some geared toward the industry side of acting) and improv acting, a specialty of mine. I'd also love to offer my private coaching services, which is why I'm listing myself here!

I offer the actor (beginning or seasoned) something you won't find on the East Coast. I'm an over 20-year SAG member and working actress in Los Angeles with a body of work that includes a lot of improv and comedy for both stage and TV/Film (regular role on Comedy Central's Reno 911, dozens of TV shows: recently Marlon on NBC and a pilot for A & E starring Alyssa Milano).

I've performed on all the big comedy MainStages in LA for two decades, but have also done my fair share of drama, too. (TV credits include: Bones, NYPD Blue, Strong Medicine to name a few) and prior to moving to Los Angeles where I studied at the Lost Studio with Cinda Jackson, Meg Tilly and Eric Stoltz, I studied with ...

About Kristina
Instead of filling in all my credits below, it's much easier to go to IMDB and look up my name: Kristina Hayes.
You can not only see my credits, there is a link to my acting/dance website where you can view various acting reels and television performances as well as clips of comedy shorts I've made over the years. And you'll probably see that I also teach ballroom dance if that's of any interest to you!

*Please note that I've had a background check on another site and don't wish to pay for it again at this time, but I can see about forwarding you that information. If it's not possible to forward, I'll be sure to get a background check done here as well :)

Would you like some help constructing imaginary circumstances? Well, I'm here to help! Graduated from the Boston Conservatory with a degree in Acting with an emphasis on Devising from the Contemporary Theatre Program. I will cater the lessons to the individual learner. Also, I would like to focus on centering techniques and grounding fundamentals for performers. I want to help the student by guiding them to find techniques and habits that will get them consistent results for the moments that they'd like to create.

About Fray
I am a multi-disciplinary artist who directs, choreographs and devises.

I see contemporary theater as a catalyst for a domino effect of empowerment for each individual that comes in contact with it. Within a crafted dialogue, theater empowers and connect people to find what is common. First, the actor will be empowered. Next, the audience member is empowered. Finally, the community is empowered through the efforts of community members who are inspired by the theatrical experience. Ultimately, I seek to humanize himself and all of those who have been "othered."
