Thank you kent!
James Jr.
Kent has the ability to do or teach drama, comedy and improvisation. He has wisdom, talent, intelligence and integrity. I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.
SOLID T.
I was honored to have been guided by Kent J. during a historic presentation in honor of Malcolm X in Las Vegas. His patient and motivating spirit makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and look forward to the opportunity to be under his leadership once again. Because of Mr. J, I have decided to seek additional acting training for my own career.

Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.

I have a passion for theatre & hopefully you do too! I will help my students become strong in improv, monologue & scene work. A packet will be given each week on things to work on & improve along with an assignment. I will require my students to learn a monologue a week excluding other assignments I give because building your repertoire is crucial in this career. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet 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
