Having spent a lifetime on the stage in many roles, many capacities, I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge pertaining to all facets of performing; be it theater, television, film. While not subscribing to one particular "method", I stress "reacting, not acting", and believability of performance. All ages and experience levels have benefited from my approach. Whether a student is an aspiring actor, or a working actor sharpening their skills or prepping for an audition, I provide a solid foundation and practical knowledge and guidance.
All levels of improvisational acting for the stage taught and workshopped. From an improv project to auditioning for your local community stage, to that professional performance, improvisation can help an actor think on his or her feet.
Students will learn how to react realistically to imaginary circumstances and perform in the moment. Each lesson the student will warm up physically and vocally and work on improv games to become a more attentive and accepting performer always building characters and stories based on the "yes and..." technique devised by Viola Spolin.
For over 30 years now acting has always been my absolute passion in life! I have the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. so they will stand out in front of the casting director or make their tape unique from the rest. Acting is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others so they may reach their dreams of becoming a working actor.
