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.

About Robert

I have taught acting for over 30 years based in the Meisner Technique, and I write and direct my own plays and films. I have years of experience as an actor, jazz saxophone player, singer and poet, as well as a philosophy degree, which I bring to my understanding of acting. I use this rich backgro

Emma is a wonderful teacher. She was genuine and gentle when giving feedback. She was very relatable to my daughter who is 13 and made her feel completely at ease. My daughter learned a lot in one lesson and thoroughly enjoyed it.
AriDy Nox
Emma is an incredible performer, artist, song-writer, and educator! She is incredibly patient, kind, welcoming, and warm. She is extremely talented and attentive, which results in invaluable knowledge being imparted on a constant basis and encouraging critique on areas where one is more challenged.

Worth every penny!
Britney A
Emma is a great and patient acting teacher. While my other teachers rarely dived into my characters' objectives, Emma never fails to work with me on character development, script analysis, projection, breathing, and stage presence. I learned so much from her, I recommend her for everyone.

Hi and Welcome! In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Acting from New York University, I have been a professional working actor for over 30 years and have been fortunate to work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television and film. I teach Acting to all ages and skill levels, as well as Singing Performance (focuses on the 'story" of the song, not technique). Whether you are pursuing acting as a profession or not, the benefits of theater training can be profound on many levels. We humans love to play. We love stories. I encourage fellow actors to be confident, joyful, and fearless with their creativity. I teach emotional literacy, empathy, and the value of failing well and often. I inspire actors to build their own "arsenal" of tools that will serve you throughout your creative life. For professionals, I am happy to work on audition material, monologues, and scenes. For young artists, I am thrilled to work on auditions for BFA programs, scholarships, summer intensives, and more.

About Ashley

Safety and respectful collaboration are the foundation of my teaching philosophy. I encourage a passion for play, self-discovery, and a willingness to see yourself as an artist who has the power to affect change in our world. My acting life began when I was ten, participating in community theater a

I recently fell in love with dancing, but before that I had little to no experience, so I know what it is like to be a beginner, and to struggle. However, through the blessing of many excellent teachers and mentors, I have progressed rapidly and now have some considerable skill in dancing, so I am able to help people learn and grow at their own rate. I have much experience teaching other subjects (piano, physics, chemistry, and religion), so I know how to teach and how to give constructive advice.

About Jonathan

Hey there! My name's Jonny. I am currently a student at BYU, studying Physics-Astronomy and minoring in ballroom dance. I've grown up with music and love all aspects of it! I love singing, dancing, playing the piano and a few other instruments. I also have a love of languages, reading, videogames,

"I am very please with the results. As I read and we spoke Randy detected habits or
mispronunciations in my speech. Just having him draw my attention to them I began hearing them in everyday conversation. He is an excellent and fun coach and I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to improve and polish their speaking whether business or giving presentations. I plan to use him for some on camera and public speaking pointers. Thanks Randy!"

"Ms. Noreen has got to be one of the best dance teachers around! As a result of taking her classes, I have become more knowledgeable in the field of dance, as well as a more confident person. She is a patient, kind, and understanding person, determined to help her students reach their full potential as dancers. I highly recommend taking her classes (which range from ballet, hip hop, jazz, and tap) if you're a beginner dancer, or even an experienced one wanting to hone your skills. You'll definitely progress as a dancer and perhaps make some new friends through class! :))"

Acting Tips: Do I Really Need an Acting Coach?

How important is it for aspiring actors to hire an acting coach? Find out in this guest post by New York, NY acting teacher Stephanie B... So let's assume you are an actor in NYC or LA - running around auditioning like mad, but not really getting too many call-backs. And not really getting cast, either! You think, maybe I should try working with an acting coach like some others do. But what can an acting coach do for me? Why give someone money to do---what? What does an acting coach do to …
