Lesson Details

Shakespearean Acting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am an actress, coach, director and industry professional.
My background in Theatre, Film and TV stems from Europe, where I have been trained at: Hockerill Anglo European College ( majored in Theatrical Studies), The London Academy of Dramatic Arts in Physical Theatre and Cambridge University Theatre Summer Program in Classical Work and Musical Theatre. I am also classically trained and certified, with distinction by The London College of Music. I am a graduate of the Lee Strasberg Institute and the Stella Adler Studio of Acting Conservatory in NYC. My field of study is Voice and Speech, Movement and Physicality, Script Analysis, Character work, Scene Study and Private Coaching/Directing and Audition preparation.
I have several years of experience working as a private coach to top actors in the industry ( from all walks of life) as well as providing workshops in English for children ages 5 and up in Europe, Asia and NYC.

My unique style allows you to delve more deeply into character and text exploration. I will provide you with a set of tools so that you can learn to work on your own and find your own style and freedom of expression. My approach is not to ''sugar coat'' but to provide truthful feedback in an effort to provide smart results.

I have worked on several Musical Theatre productions with children in effort to introduce a Theatre department in those schools.
When working with children my main focus is unlocking creativity through play and imagination.
When working with adults I tend to watch for tensions, bad habits and ways to free up the body and mind in order to let creativity flow through in work and ultimately in private life as well.

It's a breath if fresh air to work with a coach that focuses on the truth and life of the character, the technical aspects of the work, and keeping in mind my vocal quality. I think she offers me a unique approach, that pulls from not just one particular school of thought. She's incredibly patient, and challenges me to keep digging deeper until I hit a choice that really resonates and fuels me to the point that feels real and strong. She works very hard to make sure my finished product looks spotless and is a vital asset to my success and I will be sure to use her on every project I book. Thousands of recommendation to this superb coach
