When I began studying the Meisner technique six years ago, it completely changed my approach to acting. Meisner asks us to dig deep into the most powerful tool we have, our imaginations, to create rich, emotionally honest acting. I believe in the power of Meisner work because I've seen it first-hand as I coach actors of all ages and experience levels. We can begin with basic repetition exercises, or for the more experienced/advanced actor we can move to the more advanced work. I take a highly individualized approach, so we will work together to determine your needs and goals and then craft a plan based on that. I'm excited to meet you!

About Kevan D.

Hi! I'm an actor, director, and playwright who loves sharing my passion for theatre with people of all ages. I am primarily an acting teacher specializing in the Meisner technique. I am a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma with a BFA in Acting and Texas Tech University with an MFA in Theatre Performance. I have had the opportunity to train from some of the country's most exceptional theatre artists, and bring a wide array of tools to my work as an acting coach.

Acting is hard work, but it should be fun! I'll teach you specific techniques or we can work on specific material.
Students can expect a highly personalized experience; I like to "meet the student where they are", serving as a guide and a coach rather than an all-knowing guru. Whatever your experience, skill, or comfort level with performing may be, I will work with you using the tools in my toolbox to make you a more present, spontaneous, and engaging performer. I teach students to better understand their character and make spontaneous choices, living fully in the moment as an actor instead of worrying about "what's my next line?" or "do I look silly?"

Let's find what's unique about you and find ways to use it!

I can also work with students on healthy use of voice, dialects, and movement. I specialize in French, Russian, Cockney, Received Pronunciation (RP), Southern American, and Irish dialects. I'm excited to work with you!
