Private Acting Teacher

I was offered full rides to Yale, NYU, and UCSD and earned my MFA in Acting from UCSD in 2009. Since then, I've guest-starred and recurred on 20+ network TV shows, led several films, performed on Broadway and at the top regional theaters in the country. I've also served as an Adjunct Professor at Pace University and NYU.
Whether you're looking to learn the fundamentals of acting, sharpen your auditions pieces for BFA or MFA programs, or book more professional gigs by improving your self-tapes and in-room auditions for every medium, I will deliver for you.
I love helping actors grow as much as performing myself. Together, we will bolster your imagination and toolbox to arrive at further truth and dynamics in storytelling.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Acting and Shakespeare for Kids and Teens

As a classically trained actor who spent her undergrad years at NYU studying at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, Stephanie’s particular strength as a teacher lies in her ability to both give her students the tools to meet the demands of classical texts, while also helping them connect their inner truth to the emotional life of the character. Therefore, her work with young actors is based on three principle areas-

• Character- discovering who they are, their specific circumstances, and the students’ own personal connection to the role
• Voice and Text work- giving students the tools to understand and unlock the text, and speak it with confidence and freedom
• Fostering commitment, connection, generosity and specificity, the four basic tenants of the Shakespeare and Company educational curriculum (and all-around great tools for life!)

Coaching Sessions:
• For kids and teens ages 8-18
• High school, college, and professional ...

About Stephanie

Stephanie holds a BFA in drama from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and her MFA in classical acting from the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting at the George Washington University, where she studied with Michael Kahn, Gary Logan (author of The Eloquent Shakespeare) and Elle

I have studied speech, dialects and acting at Harvard University as well as abroad at the Moscow Art Theatre School and National Institute for Dramatic Art in Australia. As a recent graduate of an MFA Acting program, I have been educated in the most up to date teaching methods and a wide array of acting and speech techniques. I create lesson plans that are individualized to suit each student’s needs and goals with enjoyment at the top of priority list. I have a lot of experience teaching children as well as adults in both private and group settings. I have a huge interest and experience in voice and speech technique as well. Whether it’s for an upcoming audition or just for fun, I can’t wait to work with you!

I am from Miami, FL and I have had a passion for acting since I participated in my first show at 10 years old in a local theatre camp. Ever since then, I studied musical theatre in middle and high school. I took rigorous classes in acting, ballet, jazz, improv, movement, scene study etc. while starring in multiple musicals and plays such as Our Town, Anything Goes, Sweet Charity, Hamletmachine, In The Heights, and more.

I had fallen in love with acting so much so that I returned to that local theatre, where my passion first sparked, to be a counselor this summer in hopes of encouraging the younger generation to dive in and explore the beautiful adventure of becoming an artist -of becoming an ACTOR!

Now that summer is coming to an end and Fall is approaching, I am humbled to share that I will be attending Carnegie Mellon University for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Acting.

I am ready to meet with actors of all ages and experience levels. This business is fast moving and can be vague at times leaving you wondering what could you have done differently if you didn't book the job. I want you to succeed, but first you need the proper tools to get to that next level of your career. From my experience of working in LA and Chicago as well as drawing from previous instructors, you will learn more than just basic acting exercises. Gain an upper hand on your contemporaries!

Very knowledgable teacher! Christian is patient with me as a beginner and has a great teaching method whereby he never tells you exactly how to perform a piece, as that is not what acting is about.

She has a wonderful energy and a keen eye, and creates a safe, welcoming space to play and try new things.
