Lesson Details

Shakespearean Acting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to be a professional will need these things in addition to acting training. Being good and showing Pele in a short time that you're good aren't necessarily the same skill.

I've taught private lessons for many years and would love to see if our styles mesh!

Amazing instructor! Very easy-going and makes you feel comfortable so you're able to perform at your very best. Has strong visions for what will help her students flourish as artists. HIGHLY recommended for novice and intermediate actors!
