I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

"Upon my first time working with Erin it was extremely obvious how technically proficient she is, although it should be no surprise, since she has a Masters in Acting from a top graduate program. Not only was I able to place complete and utter trust in her extensive knowledge of the craft, but her nurturing energy and humorous demeanor create such a positive environment to take risks and be exploratory in my work. I couldn’t ask for anything more in an acting instructor. She’s truly awesome."
