Improv is a great learning tool for team building, spontaneity, listening, being present, speaking to groups, communicating one on one, saying yes and so much more. It helps that each game played builds upon the next to reinforce the learning.

Improvisers fail forward. We embrace "failure." We have to fail in order to succeed. If we aren't failing, we aren't trying.

What you get:
Team Building / Laughter Workshop
Bring the team together in an interactive environment that fosters positive thinking and collaboration.

Improv Troupe Direction - for improv troupes who need an outside eye for notes, direction and ideas for marketing your troupe. At the end of the session, you will have new games and ideas to move your troupe forward.

Christine will help each student become more present, less self-conscious and will get them excited about failing.

Expect to leave this class feeling more confident and empowered.

Christine is committed to providing a safe and courageous ...

Working with Christine has been nothing short of an amazing experience. I have learned so much about the industry and have received so much insight on what it takes to be a great actress/comedian/etc. When I first started out, I had no idea what direction I wanted to take or where to start. Christine was extremely patient and came equipped with a roadmap to getting started. She takes every lesson at the pace that works best for me. She has helped me to set and define clear goals of what I want to accomplish and has made excellent use of our time together. I chose Christine because of previous reviews and she has lived up to every word of what others have said. It's been a blast and I plan to continue developing my skill set with her help!

Christine is the BEST!
As a beginner improver, I am so lucky I found Christine! She has taught me so many valuable tools that have improved my scene work and my decision making. In addition, she always addresses my specific issues during each lesson and even emails me with advice and fun GIFS! (no, not "gifts", but graphic interchange formats! :D Every class is fun and lighthearted and I look forward to it each week.

My lessons are virtual, but she is still very effective at participating in scenes and even encouraged my fellow classmate to join me during our lessons. We can't say enough great things about each class!!

I have completed the Players Workshop of Second City six part course twice and performed in their graduation show twice as well. I write comedy for my own purposes and study comedy almost constantly. However improv. for the actor can be an entirely different process and is based mainly on finding your character via various exercises. Open mid required!

About Randy
I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, with a few years behind me; I'm ready to pass on what I have learned. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am well trained, professionally, both as an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those claims. I invite you to please peruse my background on the site and feel free to ask any questions you desire.

Regarding Texas Hold 'em (poker), I have been playing and teaching the game, and working for online casinos for over thirty years. My approach is simple, requires extreme discipline, but I can show you how to win mo
re than you lose. And this is true of all subjects I teach whether literal or figurative.

My undergraduate Bachelors is in Acting & Directing I was taught by the same professors who launched the students that formed the now famous Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago (Illinois State University); I also have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience both as a GA and in the private sector. I have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio et.al). I hope that gives you a thumbnail concurrently I hope I didn't bore you to death.

Peace and Kindest Regards,
Randy

I provide a positive and fun hands on environment that allows for nothing but the growth and success for my students.

For private consultation sessions I start at the beginning. We begin by assessing your "type", what type of work you see yourself doing, and how you want to progress in your acting. I then suggest work for my students to familiarize theirselves with ranging from books to television and plays, so that they feel immersed in the world they desire to enter.

For audition prep I work to make sure my students feel prepared and excited for their audition pieces so that they have the confidence to walk into the room and book the role!

For audition prep, I coach:
-Monologues
-Scene Work
-Theater -from the original audition to creating the role
-Self-tape
-Film and TV-where we go over the nuances and subtly of film

About Simone
Simone loves the hands-on collaborative nature of the theatre. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2016 from New York University, Tisch School of the Arts, where she majored in Acting. Simone has much experience teaching people of all ages in theater arts and performance. When she's not auditioning Simone enjoys, baking, spending time with family, watching Netflix, and working out.

Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence.

Improv dosn't need to be scary! I'll work with you on the basics of improv (yes and..., blocking, etc.) and then move forward based on your individual needs and goals.
Improvisational acting is more than just what you may have seen on Whose Line is it Anyway, it's a valuable tool for actors, and we can work together to unlock its full potential.

About Kevan
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!

My fellow thespians,

You will be mentored by an Emmy Nominated actor and award winning Playwright. I have studied with legends such as Stella Adler and Larry Moss. My lessons are built on the Meisner technique. I have the solid foundation as a working actor and writer for thirty years.

I'm a highly sought after speaker and have taught my seminars at universities around the country. One of my goals is to transition the college acting student to a working actor. My students have built careers as a result of my coaching and mentoring. My all encompassing approach will cover everything from how to give an amazing audition to fast tracking you to obtaining an agent.

Compare my credentials of all your prospective teachers. I'm confident that my approach to presentation, proper breathing, voice, making a lasting first impression, how to dress, building your career, how to get an agent is unique and helps me stand apart from my competition.

Lastly, I really care. I am invested in

About Michael
Hi friends,

It is nice to meet you! I am 'Emmy Nominated' actor and twenty five year veteran actor on the longest running show in broadcast history The Guiding Light. In addition, I was a three time nominee for best actor for the Soap Opera Digest Awards. I was fortunate to study acting from the legendary acting teacher Stella Adler and Larry Moss. I'm also a student and performer from the highly acclaimed Improv group 'The Groundlings'.

I've been fortunate to be a working actor most of my life. My credits include the recurring role of Dr. Stewart Farmingham on the popular ABC series Doogie Howser, M.D.and Paul in It's a Small World, part of an anthology series produced by David Lynch for HBO and Lead featured roles in Law and Order. I have booked numerous lead roles in feature films and off-Broadway and in national television commer
cials. My American Express commercial won the ESPY award for best commercial of the year.

In the fall of 2010, I started Studio 47 Productions to be a leader to effective branding with original content for web streaming. I soon partnered with ConvergTV's, The Venture Channel. I was proud to announce distribution of my award winning comedy soap spoof, Steamboat now available on Roku and NetTalk.

My first play as a playwright, 'Breathing Under Dirt' was recently awarded ''Best Play' at the Manhattan Repertory One Act Festival in March.' Breathing Under Dirt' has since been expanded to a full length play and launched its world Premier at the Ella Fitzgerald Theater in Maryland to rave reviews. ' Breathing Under Dirt' is now getting Broadway consideration with the highly acclaimed director Larry Moss at the helm. I have just completed my second play 'Red Rain' which explores the themes of war and peace that collide within a family during the Vietnam War.' Red Rain' is currently being work shopped in NYC for a production launch in early 2020.

Enough about me! I am on this site as my true passion is building successful acting careers. Just so you know, I am a nuts and bolt guy. There is a clear road map to increase your chances of success that I will give you. The fact is casting directors have made a DECISION about you before you even open your mouth. I will empower your' actor’s ego' so that you will own any room you walk in.
I want to learn about you and your goals. Let's start! Just want to wish you success on your journey.

Kind regards,

Michael

Are you ready to land that role or book your next gig? Interested in learning how to find the perfect monologue or song for your next audition? I will help you build a solid acting foundation based on technique while tailoring to your personal tastes and goals. Part of my lesson plan involves me providing you with resources and written feedback so you can always continue to improve. Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!

About Rachel
I am a professional singer, actor, voice over actor, and teaching artist. I graduated from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and Education.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their acting abilities. Every actor brings a unique set of talents to the mix; I teach students to build on their strengths and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock skills they didn't know they had. I can help any student realize their true potential as an artist.

I teach voice students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical voice for 15 years, and a contemporary voice for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence as well as contemporary technique.

As a professional singer/actor, I have had many opportunities to work and learn from amazing artists. I had
the opportunity to sing with Patti LuPone, known for her roles as Evita, Mama Rose and many more on Broadway. I've also worked with Constantine Maroulis, former American Idol contestant, and Broadway star.

I believe that great technique is essential to any and every style of theatre. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better actor, singer, and artist.

Brad is a FANTASTIC teacher! He has taught many classes with Christian Youth Theater (CYT) and is our Improv coach in McHenry county. Our kids and parents absolutely adore him!!! He works so well with the kids that at our annual overnight camp this summer, one of his students was able to lead an improv game in front of 120 people. Our kids have grown enormously through Brad’s teaching and they just love being around him.
