For a fun, warm, but thoroughly determined and passionate lesson experience, I'm your gal. Plus, I'm a local - Brooklyn born, Jersey raised - so if you're a local too, I bet we have the same regional accent. Want to know how to ditch it when necessary? I can help.
We can start from the very beginning and explore in a fun, creative environment underlining the basics. But if you're looking for a more career-driven lesson experience, get ready to learn lots of technique and do. the. work.

Scene Study and Acting Technique, Voice Work and IPA, Character Development, Movement, Shakespeare, Chekov, Acting for the Camera, Directing, Improv, Film Production
While my passion as an actor tends to lead me into theater work, I have skills in film production and can help you get authentic on-camera experience. There is a definite difference in the way an actor approaches screen work vs stage work, and the best way to learn it is to be ON camera and see the difference for yourself.

Keri does a wonderful job instructing her students in a professional but fun manner. She is an absolute pleasure to work with . She is extremely patient and truly wants each student to reach their potential!
My child is a little bit shy but loves playing silly characters. Keri really helped her to feel comfortable and be confident. She is a very patient teacher and very aware of how my child was feeling and reacting. She is very good at helping Lily express herself. I really appreciate Keri's presence in our home.+ Read More
