Hi and Welcome! In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Acting from New York University, I have been a professional working actor for over 30 years and have been fortunate to work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television and film. I teach Acting to all ages and skill levels, as well as Singing Performance (focuses on the 'story" of the song, not technique). Whether you are pursuing acting as a profession or not, the benefits of theater training can be profound on many levels. We humans love to play. We love stories. I encourage fellow actors to be confident, joyful, and fearless with their creativity. I teach emotional literacy, empathy, and the value of failing well and often. I inspire actors to build their own "arsenal" of tools that will serve you throughout your creative life. For professionals, I am happy to work on audition material, monologues, and scenes. For young artists, I am thrilled to work on auditions for BFA programs, scholarships, summer intensives, and more. For beginners who are simply interested in trying something new, your creativity is your GOLD, and I am excited to work with you as you treat yourself to exploring the world of storytelling and as you honor what YOU have to say. Time to leap!
About Ashley C.

In addition to holding an MFA in Acting from New York University, I have been fortunate to work in theater (Broadway, Off- Broadway), television (Heroes, Everybody Loves Raymond, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, Secret Circle, Law and Order, among others), and in film, including Steven Spielberg's Minority Report and Little Big League. Safety and respectful collaboration are the foundation of my teaching philosophy. I encourage a passion for play, self-discovery, and a willingness to see yourself as an artist who has the power to affect change in our world. Every experience along the way is a valuable stepping stone. Every teacher, class, director, fellow actor, and audition has provided me with another opportunity to learn and to grow as a storyteller and human being. I've learned to convert the "no thank you's" into opportunity and the "yes's" into fuel! Whether you are a professional or a beginner, a student prepping college/grad school auditions or someone who simply wants to explore their creativity, I look forward to working with you!

Ashley is one of the most wonderful people I have ever worked with. I am so grateful to have met her and gotten her help on my college audition journey. Ashley is open to interpretation, and suggestions and helps you find your voice. She helped me a lot in the audition process and showed me how to approach an over-practiced monologue from a different side and connect to the character. I couldn't be more grateful for getting to work with such an incredible and professional fellow actor and mentor.
