Adam is a great teacher. He praises you for things you do properly and patiently tries to correct any mistakes. His song suggestions that would be used for practice try to highlight your voice as you apply the techniques you learned. They also sometimes take you out of your comfort zone to challenge you and expand your growth. Would highly recommend him as a teacher!

I absolutely love Kim's acting coaching!

I have been in financial business for many years. Recently, I took a project and need to adapt quickly to play a role in a film within very short time period. I am very lucky to find Kim:

(1) She is well prepared for each lesson. She understood clearly about my objectives;
(2) She gives me lots of valuable tips to improve my acting skills;
(3) She is very quick to grasp the film writer and director's intention for the role;
(4) She pays great attention to every detail of the script to help me to maximize my potential in the role;
(5) She goes above and beyond: she reviews my recording and gives me great feedback after the lesson; she went through multiple scripts within very short time period on her own time;
(6) She is extremely fun to work with;

I just finished my second lesson with Kim. She is not only a great acting coach, but a great actor! She is definitely a go to person in my future film venture!!!

Gregory is a fantastic acting coach and all around awesome person. Our son (age 11) has been working with him and has learned such great techniques that he can take with him to every audition. Greg doesn't stick to one teaching method, he adapts to what our son needs and uses language that is helpful for him. We have seen significant improvement in our son's abilities in just a few lessons with Greg. Highly recommend!!

Took my first performance class with Gregory (after decades away), a Hamlet Scene Study. Class was a nice size (14 people), diverse in age and previous experience, several of them were returning to Gregory's class for a second time, and it was just fantastic. Several of the folks had done some professional work, some were plotting an escape from a current non-theatre career into acting, quite a few were active participants in community theatre here in DC, and some were just passionate about The Bard, reading and analyzing the text,and deepening their understanding of the work. I marveled at how well he addressed all his students, meeting them at their level, whatever that was. He created a very welcoming environment, lots of humor, lots of physicality, open-mindedness, and it was just fascinating to see each scene study pairing, no matter what their level, improve their performance of the scene after some direction and creative input from Gregory, as well as the other students. Highly recommend. I plan to take his class again as soon as convenient, and maybe other classes as well.

Gregory Wooddell is a phenomenal acting teacher and coach. I have taken many classes with him, and I have also had private lessons from him. He works with everyone at whatever level they are at, and he makes excellent, insightful, and understandable suggestions to improve the acting. And there is always a very noticeable improvement. Gregory is fair, patient, and always encouraging. He creates a safe and fun environment for students.

I start from the ground up. As an instructor it is my responsibility to first help the student understand the nature of the person, including mind and body awareness. Once they are aware of the physical it can then transform to connect the breath to speech.

This ground work will prepare students for monologue work - understanding character analysis and specificity of each character.
They will learn how to control their breath when speaking, and utilizing pitch variety
Techniques of Stanislavsky, Meisner, and Chekov (Michael) will be used.

About Kendall
I am a professional actress in the Washington, DC area. I am currently apart of the Teaching Artist company at the Smithsonian Institutes Discovery Theater. As a recent graduate at Point Park University with a BFA in Acting, my goal is to give back through my art. As an instructor it is my intention to encourage the student to use the art as a tool for how to navigate through the world.

My acting students become more aware of their bodies and minds, which helps them become more aware in the world around them. It is not solely about the words that are "memorized" in a play, however it is about the internal experience each character has, and ultimately how it changes the actor.

Using the combined methods of Stanislavsky, Meisner, and Michael Chekhov, I will aid my students to freedom in their imaginations, body and mind!

Beginner, intermediate, and advanced on-camera and onstage acting lessons from an award-winning, working actor with over 10 years professional stage and screen experience in classics to world premiere plays at Ford's Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, Woolly Mammoth, Kansas City Rep, SIgnature Theatre, Round House, Center Stage, and Everyman Theatre (Company Member), with awards including Best Actor at the Reel Indpendent Extravaganza in DC for the feature film LAST NIGHT, now streaming on Amazon, Best Supporting actor at NOVA Fest in Virginia for the short film RUMINATION, and the Helen Hayes Best Ensemble for WHO's AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? at Ford's Theatre.

My approach is to immediately dive in with an unmemorized text--a monologue, short scene, poem, clipping, citation, phone book--and learn script analysis, memorization, character intention, action, persona, need, with an emphasis on developing a method unique to you, the actor.

to you, the actor.

Each lesson will be tailored towards your instinctual responses to direction. I believe acting is a very vulnerable art if done right, and creative expression can most often be found in a safe environment for risk through play. Ultimately my classes are to shape you, as the actor, with an insight into why that is important both artistically and psychologically.

Further lessons will also include practical approaches to the business aspects of an actor's career, actor health both physically and mentally, and college audition prep.
