Josh was so sweet and patient! It was a bit of a tricky time having online classes with the kids, but he made it fun for them to stay engaged!

I have been teaching hip hop classes for over 10 years. In my class you will learn the foundations of dance and how to understand musicality in order to translate it into movement. My main objective is to have a fun time with you while we work on your dance moves and your confidence. The class can be customized depending on your goal: learning routines, fitness or dancing in heels. All levels and ages are welcome!

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 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

After my first film audition, in as many years, it was quite evident I needed an acting instructor. For months, I looked high and low to find the right one. I wanted an instructor who could challenge me, yet in a nurturing manner. An instructor who can speak confidently about the craft. Above all, an instructor you look forward to seeing every session. Jeremy Kruse is all that and then some.

Within weeks of pairing up, my acting style/delivery is far more conversational. Plus, I’m more at ease when working to find the true essence of a character to develop and make my own.

I always walk away from Jeremy’s sessions learning something new. Jeremy’s constant encouragement has propelled my confidence, as an actor, to another level.

Initially, I wasn’t really into the idea of taking acting classes via FaceTime. The idea sounded so impersonal and potentially distracting, not with Jeremy. It's as if he's working with you, face-to-face, in a studio.

In addition to acting, Jeremy has been so supportive with my first attempt in writing a screenplay. He's such a creative influence.

The secret is out, Jeremy Kruse is the "Best Instructor Ever"! Working with him makes my dreams of becoming an accomplished actor a reality. Thanks Jeremy!

Jeremy is great! He's super personable and down to earth, and he never makes you feel like you've screwed up. He gives good feedback and is very knowledgeable. He's always open to answer any questions I have, too. Really great guy!
Timothy
I love these lessons! I look forward to them every week. Jeremy is a cool down to earth guy and is easy to talk to which really helps if you're new to this kind of thing. He gives good feedback that really makes you see things from the outside in.

About Chris

Hi! Welcome to Take Lessons! Let me start off by saying that I love to teach singing and acting!! I specialize in teaching students from teens to adults but love teaching younger children as well. There is no better feeling than to see a student grow and better themselves artistically and persona

Excellent first lesson
Mike O.
Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal.

Jonathan is a fantastic teacher! Having little prior singing experience, he made me feel at ease and comfortable starting out. He also really listened to my specific goals and what I was looking to achieve with these lessons and tailored the lesson to my individual needs. I would easily recommend Jonathan to anyone looking to work on their singing technique and confidence!
Sophia S.
Lessons are fun and interesting with John! I have learned so many useful tips with John. He is the best and beyond. Take lessons with him!

Jonathan is a fantastic voice teacher. Not only can he sing incredibly well but he can teach incredibly well too. He has a very strong background in vocal technique with an Undergrad and Masters degree in voice. Can't wait to continue to progress with Jonathan's help.

"I sought Randy's advice for sounding like/being a more confident speaker. Within the first lesson he gave me excellent, concrete tips that I could try and that had visible results even in my every-day conversations. I was wary at first of online lessons, but I am so glad I gave it a shot. Highly recommend!"

"Where do I even begin? I really cannot recommend Nicholas enough whether you’re somewhat of a professional or just starting out. I’ve always wanted to take Improv classes in a safe and exciting environment. Nicholas is a really talented, thoughtful instructor, and he not only makes you feel extremely comfortable with yourself but he pulls you own of your comfort zone at the same time to challenge yourself. I am so thrilled I started classes. I’ve learnt so many lessons that I can even apply to my daily life. I feel more confident. I’ve learnt to trust my own instincts more. I look forward to working with Nicholas always. It’s always such a great experience that the rest of the day just falls away every single time we have a lesson. It’s amazing to see the difference from when I started out. I highly recommend this instructor!"

"Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!"
