I have 20 years of experience teaching acting, voice and diction. I am also a director and have auditioned hundreds of actors for stage work, so I know what works and what doesn't in an audition!
I've worked with both academic and professional theatre across the country. I use a variety of methods as I believe that achieving authenticity on stage is a very personal journey no one method works for everyone. I also believe that "authenticity" is meaningless without the skills needed to make your work clear and affecting for an audience. So, I always incorporate physical and vocal techniques alongside deep personal connection to character. This approach will give you a firm foundation that can be equally effective on stage or on camera. Serious commitment is the foundation of good acting and I believe that ANYONE can be taught to be great!
Cynthia is a terrific theater artist. She directed a reading in New York of a solo performance piece that I wrote, so I experienced her as both a playwright and a performer. Our work together was a rich, meaningful collaboration. As a director, she is a keen listener and gives excellent feedback in service of the story. I highly recommend working with her!+ Read More
Cynthia is an excellent voice teacher! She helped reduce my New Jersey accent and taught me how to support my voice through breathing and relaxation exercises. Cynthia is nurturing and supportive and makes her lessons fun and rewarding. If you're looking to improve your speech--she's the real deal!+ Read More
