Acting for film requires finding simple powerful ways to transmit the emotions and inner world of the character. I work with the student to keep their work simple, yet powerful.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical voice training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help students discover their unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my students an array of tools to gain the ability
and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal technique exercises come next. When the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that students be a part of the process of picking material since the more personally they respond to the material the more apt they are to become engaged in their lessons. After three to six months beginning students will have gained an understanding of the fundamentals of breathing, relaxation, and basic performance skills. With more advanced students the focus will be on range extension and the on-going development of vocal style through song interpretation and performance related exercises.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, cabaret, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

About Jeremy
Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to acting, I can teach you what it takes to be an actor and how to bring a character to life. Do you need to prepare for an audition? Do you want to learn about the business of acting? Script analysis? I can help.

I can help with your audition for performing arts high schools. My students have gotten into the schools of their choice.

If you have training or are a working actor, I can help take you to the next level.

I am a working actor, published playwright and award winning filmmaker. I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. I taught Method Acting, Acting for Camera, Improvisation as well as other classes at The Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York. My
students, both at the Institute and from private coaching, have appeared in independent stage and film productions, TV shows, commercials and Hollywood films.

Acting is the art of bringing a character to life. I use the Lee Strasberg Method, my original exercises and a fun and serious demeanor to help actors express themselves as artists and gain the confidence and skills they need in order to book acting jobs.

My book, "The Young Actor's Handbook", is published by Applause Theatre and Cinema Books. "The Young Actor's Handbook" ignites the beginning actor's creative soul with acting exercises, acting theory, writing exercises and insight into what it means to be an actor. This is a pragmatic manual that guides and informs the young actor, beginning actor, novice acting teacher or anyone who wants to understand acting.

"Jeremy Kruse's book, "The Young Actor’s Handbook", leads the young actor on the correct path. Jeremy is an experienced acting teacher who has broken down acting in an academic way while nurturing the soul of the actor. He understands the emotional aspects of good acting. I commend Jeremy and believe he has accomplished quite a feat in writing "The Young Actors Handbook." - Vincent D'Onofrio

For theater students or new acting students that are looking to build experience and confidence in front of the camera. Take on acting scenes from film and break them down so that you can ultimately live realistically in the given circumstances. If you are preparing for an upcoming audition, please bring that in and let's solidify the scene and let's work on getting you that job!

I don't know about you (yes you, the one reading this), but I've been secretly wanting to act my whole life and am a full of life personality with hidden insecurities. Even though I have never really acted professionally, I have been theatrical and playing all sorts of characters, speaking in accents and dancing to everything in front of the mirror, in comfortable social gatherings and have even put on shows for my pets and husband! Last time I acted "professionally" was in a high school play. And even then, I mostly helped make the props!

I tell you this, because, with that kind of a background, nervous and yet SO excited to JUST TRY, I chose Christian as my teacher- my professor of Acting!

I am 3 classes in and Christian is very supportive, non-judgemental and extremely easy to learn with. I am impressed with his skills, his ability to immediately decipher something I'm trying to explain, and then how easy he makes it for me to put his constructive feedback into practice. The practice is not easy... because that stuff always takes hard work, but he explains it all so easily so I can start practicing and exploring the acting world. He is honest about the acting world, the people in it and the various steps it takes to get to wherever you are trying to get! So be honest with yourself and let this be an authentic and fun experience! Plus, it's so nice to talk to someone that actually gets what it's like to be dreaming!

Thanks Christian!

Hello, my name is Bernadette Sayre and I am recently graduated from a very rigorous 3 year Master of Fine Arts in Acting program. I specialize in Film Acting, however, I have worked as a Producer, Casting Director, Director and Camera Operator so I am familiar with what goes on behind the camera as well.

I have extensive knowledge in resume formatting, head shot formatting, demo reel formatting, how to properly audition for both film and theatre, how to properly self-tape from home, tricks for memorization, monologue preparation, character analyzation, etc.

I personally enjoy deriving my technique with a mixture of improvisation and Uta Hagen's theories on acting. I was also trained in Meisner and if a student requests it we can certainly work on some of his exercises as well.

Everything I have learned has been through my masters program, reading and researching for years, self-educating, attending numerous industry events, conferences, and I am a working actress so ...

About Bernadette
Hello! My name is Bernadette! I recently graduated from Regent University with my Master of Fine Arts in Acting with a Concentration in Directing. I received my B.A. in Psychology from George Mason University which I have found has been a very complimentary degree with acting.

In 2012, I taught an acting/filmmaking class at Prude Ranch Summer Camp in Fort Davis, Texas. In 2013, I taught at a very prestigious filmmaking camp at Imagination Stage in Bethesda, Maryland. I taught the children everything from producing, script writing, acting, camera operating, sound mixing, editing with Final Cut Pro X software, and I was their assistant teacher for their Animation camp as well.

I have interned for three production companies; Mirandum Pictures in Front Royal, Virginia, Michael Copon Studios in Norfolk, Virginia and at Parroco Producti
on Group, Inc. in Chesapeake, Virginia. If you are not familiar with Michael Copon Studios, the CEO Michael Copon is best known for his portrayal of the blue power ranger in the early 2000's.

I have extensive amount of training in film acting. Film acting is my sweet spot, however, aside from it I am trained in improv, stand up, theatre, teleprompter work, hosting, commercials, print modeling, sketch comedy, stage combat, etc.

My teaching style is simple, I will treat each student as an individual. No one person is the same, so therefore, I will hone in on what your goals and expectations are. I will help you achieve those goals and we will find an acting method that best suits you. There are so many different ways to approach auditioning, for example. The most important thing, I feel, is to find what works best for you, expound on that and always work towards bringing your authentic self to the table. That is what will ultimately enrichen your acting career the most and your personal life as well. Acting is one of those tools that you can incorporate into just about anything. I love it and I love what I do so, thank you for checking out my page and I hope to hear from you!

Have you always had that itch that makes you stay up late a night dreaming about what your life could be if you followed your dreams? Is your child overly dramatic and they need a creative outlet? No fear, Valeka is here. I'm a professional broadway, tv and film actress. I have over 10 years of experience in teaching acting and I want to teach you how to be comfortable in your skin and follow your dreams!

About Valeka
Affectionately known as “Vivacious V” Valeka J Holt is a critically acclaimed artist! She’s a professor at Georgia College where she teaches acting, content creation and solo show writing. A recent ATL transplant from DC, Valeka has quickly become an ATL favorite. She’s a member of the acting and playwright company at Working Title Playwrights, screened her award-winning film at Screening Room ATL, and has participated in workshops and readings at True Colors, Alliance and Horizon Theatre Companies! 


DC credits include: Nina in “Sunset Baby." Broadway world states: "Valeka J. Holt is astonishing. I predict a great future is ahead of her. One gets to see her transformation from the hardened criminal to that of a young woman who has just lost her mother, when she strips herself from her make-up, wig, and clothes into a bathrobe, sits on
her couch, covers herself in a wrap which was covering the couch and weeps. It's a powerful moment."

Penny in “Father Comes Home from the Wars” at Roundhouse Theatre. The Washington Post’s states “Early receives stalwart support from an ensemble that includes, most notably, Valeka J. Holt as Penny, who, like Odysseus’s Penelope, perseveres valiantly while her man is away. 
DCist states, “Holt is so emotionally invested in her character that by play’s end you feel that you might be watching a very real moment of personal unraveling. A dead ringer for Orange is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba in artistic skill, Holt is a pleasure to watch.  


Other praised performances include her work as Ruth in The Tony Award Winning Arena Stage’s production of “A Raisin in the Sun."

I don't normally write reviews for services, but a class with Valeka is worth a review! I opted for an online coaching medium because of my schedule, and Valeka was very professional, warm, responsive and very prompt. She takes the time to understand how she can help you be your best! That level of attention to detail was so important to me, since I was new to this medium.

Finding an Acting Coach in Los Angeles is a daunting and overwhelming process. For me, I set out to find someone who's approach resonated with me as well as pushed and challenged me, helping me deepen my craft and boost my self-confidence. I needed to find a coach with whom I could form a relationship, who could provide an environment where I felt comfortable to receive feedback, to allow myself to be vulnerable and to take risks. I wanted a coach who could facilitate growth and help take my career to the next level. And, of course, I wanted to find someone who is qualified and knows what they are doing. Valeka was recommended through a fellow actor, and it was the best referral ever! Her knowledge is incredible and she is always willing to help. Since working with Valeka, I have been constantly going on auditions and FINALLY getting called back. I can't recommend Valeka enough, and if my word is not enough, reach out to her. You won't be sorry!

About Alyse H.

Close

I am a working actress who wants to share my knowledge with beginner actors of all age groups!

I find that novice actors can be fearful/ self conscious which inhibits them from performing their best. My acting lessons are unique because we will break down the box we usually put ourselves in and build confidence from within.

My specialties are in Film/TV. Every lesson plan will be customized to the student's strengths and weaknesses. Some subjects we will go over are: monologue work, how to audition for TV, line memorization, on set etiquette, where to find your own work etc.

About Alyse
Hello Actors and Actresses! A little about me, I am an actress and acting coach. I've taught on takelessons since 2018 but took a hiatus as I successfully moved from Maryland to Los Angeles! I have acted in theatre, commercials, film and network TV. I am passionate about teaching new actors techniques on how to get into character, character breakdown, on camera work vs. theatre and empowering them so that they are confident enough to perform to their best ability.

Each lesson plan will be customized to the student's age and what the student needs to get to the next level in their acting career. Some examples of what we would go over are:

-where to find work
-how to submit yourself for a role
-monologues (how to find the best one for you)
-given circumstances
-acting exercises
-headshots & resumes
-improv (and why it's so impo
rtant)
-breathing and meditation (this makes a HUGE difference)

My specialty is to teach acting methods within tv/film. My passion is to make sure you are confident and prepared in the auditioning room, on camera and with other actors/ production crew that you will be working with. I look forward to meeting you and making you a better actor!

My most recent work includes my leading role in the indie film, The Runaways, which has been selected to screen at The Roxbury International Film Festival 2019 in Boston. You can find Season 1 &2 of The C-Word, a web series I helped produce and was featured in, that caught the attention of Good Morning Washington and screened at Web Fest 2018 in Harlem, NY. I was the lead in TVOne's For My Man, the face for the online ad campaign Territory Foods and Maryland Lottery. I have starred in several theatre productions in Washington, DC and Virginia, one of the productions being in DC's Capital Fringe Fest 18. Right now I am happy to say that I am officially an LA based working actress!

What's special about film & screen acting, is that it's up to the ACTOR to realize the world he/she 's in, the relationships, and what ACTION he/she is taking toward moving the story forward. Theater is collaborative, performance-wise. It's warm and fuzzy. You may never get that luxury on a TV set.

'Acting for Screen' cultivates your craft, by personal coaching with audition tools.

The challenge in SCREEN ACTING is that you must create worlds amongst extreme odds, such as using camera contraptions, special fx, cameras in your face, dolleys swirling around you, and sometimes, quite literally while standing on one foot.

Listening. Objectives. Relaxation. Specificity. THE AUDITION to book the role. These are tools every actor must wield in this exciting but changing market.

'Acting for Screen' is taught by
award-winning director/actor, (Lionsgate, Project Greenlight, On The Lot, Sony Pictures, USC Theater School) with the goal of getting you paying roles, and growing your
