A classical education makes everything so much easier. There are basic classical rhetorical devices that are easy to use once you understand them and make acting so much more fun and simple. It is 'playing' after all and with these techniques that are just ages old and so ingrained in humanity and nature you will be delighted and challenged.
I have two graduate degrees: one in Music and the other in Dance and Theater studies.
My undergraduate degree is from The Juilliard School, in Dance.
I've taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place.
*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials.
As an Acting teacher I have the capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I'm a member of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and ha
For Dance, I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. I also teach Ballet and many forms of Modern Dance. I adore teaching dance composition. To help a dance student make their own dances is very fulfilling. I also teach choreography or composition.
One of the aspects of dance composition that has recently captivated me is the composing of sound and music for the dance that is also being made. Using software, we can explore electroacoustic as well as language and text collage as sound score for your dance. It is super fun!!!
For the Visual Arts I teach Abstract Painting as well as Installation and Performance Art.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have supplies and space. Visual Art students need to contribute to materials by finding or purchasing whatever they like and adding to the mix. My students are welcome to use what I have here and I am always adding materials. Many people throw away materials that are perfectly good for art making so keep your eyes open and you'll find all kinds of good things. Visual Art students need to book a 2 hour minimum and I will lower the price if you just let me know you need it.
My fees: I start at a higher fee and after you've been a regular student we can lower the fee for you if you need.
*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.
*** Specialties ***
In dance I teach classical ballet principles for beginners or those who are returning and want to work carefully and privately. I teach from the tradition of Alfredo Corvino's principles of relationship to organic forms and structures for sound development. I studied with Mr Corvino for years and continue to study with Ernesta Corvino.
For acting I teach a combination of classical acting technique with American sense memory and relaxation skills. I am well versed in the teachings of Lee Strasberg and then spent time in London to 'fill in the cracks' of my training with analytical skills as well as the various european influences that the Royal National embrace.
I teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry while learning actual classical devices for accomplishing specific goals.

We will explore Shakespeare's plays technically and contextually to help inspire and bring to light your character’s motives and intentions.
In order to communicate Shakespeare's ideas with clarity and a specific point of view, we'll utilize the Bard's rhetorical devices found in both verse and prose:
(Antithesis/Paradox, Alliteration/Assonance, Imagery/Metaphor, Wordplay/Pun, Rhythm/Rhyme & Tempo, Irony, Iambic Pentameter/Prose, etc)
The ultimate goal is to create a fun and new experience which inspires you to feel confident in understanding and speaking Shakespearean text!

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.
I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...
Over 95% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.
I continue to audition for film, television, and theatre, as well as perform in concerts and other venues. I write and produce my own work and am currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

I look at my job as being a support system to give you the tools to help you get there. My teaching modalities come from Sandford Meisner, Stanislavski, and many of the other great teachers.
We look at your skill set to identify what is working for you. What should you keep, and celebrate. (Learning to act is a lot of work and it can be fun!). From there what needs to be adjusted becomes very apparent and we can start to tackle those elements one by one. We can also take the time to look at your career goals, and create a game plan to get there. This career is a journey.
The key is that you come out with skills you c
For private coaching in the NYC area, I teach out of many of the Professional Rehearsal Studios in NYC, such as: Shetler Studios; Ripley Grier; Simple Studios; Pearl, etc...Virtual coaching is also available.
To learn more about me as a producer please go to: TheEmpressProductions.com
Past productions include ANASTASIA, ON THE TOWN, MATILDA, GORE VIDAL'S THE BEST MAN, LAST SMOKER IN AMERICA.
I have been working professionally in the industry from a very young age, and as a current working actor, I know what is happening in the audition rooms, and how to help guide & teach young actors so they can grow and be confident. Not only have I taught for over 5+ years, but I have performed with actors of varying ages, which has helped me to really connect and make sure I can help students find age appropriate material that they can identify with & enjoy working on while they navigate what it means to be an actor.
I'm a professional working actor/singer who has been in the business since I was a child, and after years of working both in Los Angeles & New York City, I'm looking to create a studio where I can help others hone their craft in this profession.
Whether your child is new to the acting business or you're a pro who wants someone to coach callback sides, I'm here to dedicate my time & skills in a nurturing environment that will yes, push you to grow, and ultimately get you the job of your dreams!
Proud AEA member, and alum of Wagner College.

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.
Now if you are a parent, let me direct you to the babysitting agency Pinch Sitters, on whose website you can see that I work with kids and have been background checked through the company.

I teach from the beginning foundations of acting all the way to advanced help on auditions, monologues, scenes, script analysis, etc. I individualize each session based on my student's needs and goals. We work together to achieve your goals, whether it's nailing an audition, scene work, going back to the basics, anything and everything that you're struggling with as an actor. I help with performance nerves, cultivating a sense of freedom and play in my students that makes acting exciting and fun, not scary. I passionately believe that acting is a joyous and transformative artform, as well as a craft requiring practical technique. I create a safe space for my students to learn, discover, and play.
I graduated from the Maggie Flanigan Studio, a conservatory specializing in the Meisner technique in NYC, the Michael Chekhov Acting Studio, a conservatory specializing in the Michael Chekhov technique in NYC, as well as the Academy for Classical Acting at George Washington University in Washington, DC, where I received my MFA.
I believe that teaching, like acting, is an art

I am an experienced director that wants to help you nail that next audition or performance. I specialize in scene work and monologue coaching. I promise every lesson will be fun and engaging!
I am a working actor in New York. I have been off-broadway twice this year and this fall I am featured in a film starring Chadwick Boseman. I have studied with some of the best acting teachers in the business in everything ranging from Method, Clown, Shakespeare, and more. I love to piece together all the different techniques I’ve learned to give a well-rounded experience tailored to each individual students needs. My specialties are Shakespeare and Theater audition coaching.
I will create a learning environment where you can come as you are, and feel safe to fail big. I will push you to do your best work, and grow as a performer, while never losing sight of the fact that acting is first and foremost PLAY. Let’s have fun and make a beautiful mess together!

After a decade of directing plays and coaching actors, I know both what directors are looking for and how to help you deliver it. No matter where you are in your work, I'm patient, supportive, and will also give you that extra push to add more dimension to a scene or monologue. And of course - it's play! If it's not fun to do the work, why do it? We'll both work hard and have a great time.
