Improv and comedy are a couple of my BIG favs! Improv is so freeing and is essential for helping the new actor grow. For experienced actors, it can bring your performance to life like never before and really help you break out of patterns that are holding you back. Together we'll play with some of the best improv techniques and I'll give you "home play", games and exercises you can practice with friends.

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

I’m so happy to have discovered Hunter. I was struggling so much when I first reached out to her, but very hesitant about talking to someone about my problems because I am so private and felt a little embarrassed that I couldn’t figure this out by myself, but she made it so easy. Hunter is really positive and intuitive and knows just the right questions to ask but without asking too much. She helped me get to the core of the issue and got to what I needed without ever feeling uncomfortable. Now, we’ve talked so much, it’s almost like talking to a close friend, but with no judgement and actually getting useful answers.

I started out just doing a few sessions because I was so nervous and wasn’t sure if this was going to work, but seriously, I’d say book 10 - you won’t regret it! We kept finding new levels and I almost can’t believe how much better I feel and how much my life has changed. I definitely recommend Hunter. She will help you change your life!
DeShawn
Hunter is such a fun, knowledgeable and supportive, coach! I read some other reviews before hiring her, saying that she really cares about you getting the part, and it’s so true! She has lots of valuable insights for uncovering your character and great technical advice for shooting. I book all of my self-tapes with her - we coach first and then she reads with me and is my scene partner while we record. I have booked 2 guest stars in the last 3 months since I started working with her. Highly recommend!
Mohan
Very good and detail oriented teacher. She can pick up the slightest little mistakes in the way you pronounce things and the way you speak and tell you how to correct them on the spot. Now I know how to move my mouth differently to make different sounds for the same word. Have been doing session twice a week for 4 months and my accent is completely gone! I thought it was going to take years. So happy and glad I met Hunter! Easy to work with and very encouraging.

Private Improv Acting Teacher

Nationally-certified teacher of the Michael Chekhov Technique of acting, Kara is a professional stage and screen actress, director, producer, and theatre educator. She has appeared on screen in Allegiant and Logan Lucky, and on numerous stages around her home base of Atlanta, GA. She holds a BFA and an MFA in acting, and has taught at The University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University, and the University of Southern Mississippi to name a few.

Though steeped in Chekhov's psycho-physical approach to acting, Kara is an intuitive teacher who shapes the lesson to the student and his or her needs. She is also an experienced and adept improviser and experienced in the Linklater approach to vocal training.

Kara is passionate about acting, about the arts broadly, and about teaching. Her greatest joy is working with actors to find those moments of transcendence that define great performances.

About Kara

I'm not going to lie to you. It's not easy being an actor. It's vulnerable. It's unstable sometimes. It forces you to confront your weaknesses. But, because I will NEVER lie to you, you'll know exactly where you stand, what you need to work on, how much you're improving. I'm not saying I'm tough or

Kara is a wonderful instructor. She’s incredibly hands on and knows all about the subject she’s teaching. She’s also very respectful and makes all of her students feel comfortable. The class I took from her was fun and inspiring.

I am a voice and acting teacher specializing in musical theater and pop rock and other commercial forms of singing. I have training in all different acting techniques and I focus on audition and competition prep. I help performers fuse their acting and singing but can also focus on one aspect if the student so chooses. I work with many students on college auditions and thespian competitions as well. I teach all ages up to adults since I am also an adjunct faculty and have experience in teaching at the university level.

Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

Online Improv Acting Teacher

Character acting is, at least in my eyes, the greatest thrill of the performing arts. Being able to embody the complexities of a person or thing that seems completely different from that of yourself is the ultimate mark of a master of the craft of acting. Join me as we explore the various ranges of the human heart and mind. Create a skill set that will make you a director’s favorite actor. Learn techniques that will not only give you range, but keep you healthy and effective in whatever role you may portray.

I like to teach first from an analytical approach, but then evolve into a point where you can learn to feel in the moment as a character requires. Using proven techniques learned over the 17 years I’ve spent in the business we will prepare you to be able to handle a variety of different roles through technique practices and emotional exercises. Look no further, your path to excellence in character acting starts here!

"Christine pays attention to the needs and level of understanding of each student. The ways she has taken time to instruct me, have not only taken me to another level, but then she'll turn around and explain it to the class, taking us all to another level as a group. She does in one class what some instructors I've had in NYC couldn't do in a month. She's patient and a great listener, which helps make her instruction so clear and incredibly effective. Including classes I've taken in LA, NYC, Indiana and Florida, Christine Alexander is easily the best Improv instructor I've ever had."

He works so well with the kids that at our annual overnight camp this summer, one of his students was able to lead an improv game in front of 120 people. Our kids have grown enormously through Brad’s teaching and they just love being around him."
