Lesson Details

Improv Acting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
My love for acting and the craft began in college, whereas I received a degree in Theatre Arts. I then pursued my dream in NYC and trained with reputable teachers and auditioned for several years. Learning both method acting and improvisation, I applied it to my stage work, soap work, and independent films. I continued my training and performing after moving to Los Angeles. Playing the body double for Nastassja Kinski in an HBO film and doing a variety of modeling gigs was good experience. Once I moved to Florida, I decided teaching youth was my calling and while I taught elementary school, I was director/ teacher for a summer theatre program for 3 years. I love sharing my acting knowledge with youth and tapping into their talent. Setting them up for success is so rewarding!

I love working with youth! It is exciting for me to share what I know from my experiences but also to discover your journey with you. Diving into a script, selecting scene work, developing characters are all part of our process. Improvisation is also great training and beneficial and if you have a monologue for an audition that is my specialty. I am a big believer that theatre and the arts are important to have in your life. So if you are nervous, scared, never did anything like this before- make a leap and go for it!!!
