Lesson Details

Improv Acting

Levels Taught:
As a working actor in Virginia, I have learned different audition tactics. I will not only teach the concept of acting, but also teach audition techniques. While acting skills are important for auditions, knowing what the casting directors want in the auditioning room is also important. My goal is to help my students gain confidence in their abilities and to enjoy the audition process instead of dreading it.

Teaching since:

I am a Virginia based actor, living in Williamsburg,VA. I received my Bachelor's degree in Theatre at Mississippi University for Women. My background in theatre includes : Shakespeare, Classical Acting, Children's Theatre, and Musical Theatre. My goal as a teacher is to not only contribute to your "actor's toolkit", but to also teach you valuable skills for auditions. Some of my credits include: Bianca in The Taming of the Shrew at Blue-Line Shakespeare Festival, Princess Bea at The Mystery Dinner of Williamsburg, and Holly the Elf in Santa's Fireside Feast- Busch Gardens Williamsburg. I am currently preparing to play Rose in The Flick by Annie Baker with Sobotta Productions Musical Theatre. Ultimately, I can teach students to feel relaxed and comfortable in the audition room. Ninety percent of an actor's job is to audition. My ultimate focus is to help with audition and interview preparation.
