I am very comfortable with Donna. She is very knowledgeable of her talents to teach her students. The 10 lessons I paid for will be all the lessons I need. I wanted to do this to get the basics I need. I will not be signing up for more lessons so please do not charge my credit card for future lessons. I will need conformation from you and a guarantee that my card will not be charged. ASAP
Thank you so much. Nancy Richard

Nice to meet you! My name is Ben!

I earned my Master's Degree in Theatre Education from Emerson College and I've been directing and teaching acting both professionally and in academic settings for 4 years. I excel in meeting my students where they are, no matter the skill level, and working with them to find acting techniques and methods that work for them as individuals and raise their skill level and confidence on stage. My lessons are always practical, and you will always be up and moving; trying out different techniques and exercises as you hone your craft. I can work with you on audition techniques, improvisation, character development, physical movement, stage presence, and much more! Shoot me a message if you're ready to take your acting skills as a performer to the next level!

I have been a professional Theatre Educator and Director for 4 years. I'm originally from New Hampshire, and I now teach the performing arts at Cheshire Academy in Cheshire, CT. I have been acting and directing for 8 years, and I earned my Master's Degree in Theatre Education from Emerson Colleg

I'm so lucky to have worked with Ben over the course of several years. His direction has helped to totally transform me from someone who likes to act into an actor. Ben knows how to bring the best out of his students and does so with warmth and optimism. He understands the anatomy of a scene and is totally able to maximize your potential. With his enthusiasm and theatrical prowess, it will be hard to not become passionate about acting.

Ben directed the musical Into the Woods, and I played the Narrator/Mysterious Man. At first I was a bit unexcited about the part, but Ben's direction shaped it into my favorite role I've played yet. I believe it was in this show I began to immerse myself in the parts I played on stage, and I mostly credit that to him. I saw some of the best performances out of my cast mates as well.

All in all, Ben knows what he's doing and I'd recommend him to anyone excited about acting. You'll be surprised on how much you'll improve. He's the best!

I am thrilled whenever I get the chance to work with Ben. He always manages to help me not only to do well in shows, but to improve as an actor in general. He has a wide range of knowledge in the theater, so I am able to learn about many aspects of acting and theatre in general. As a director, Ben not only has a great vision, but can also explain to the actors what that vision is, and how they can best achieve it. He is always willing to answer questions and help me in any way that he can. He makes the people around him feel comfortable and safe, so they don't feel judged when experimenting on the stage. He inspires me every time we work together, and offers endless encouragement. Without great teachers like Ben, I never would have had the tools, or confidence, to follow my passion of theatre.

In just one lesson Shelby taught me so much! She really knows her stuff! She is a very supportive and encouraging teacher and coach. I really enjoy the way Shelby helps me work through my songs. She always starts with the technique and making sure I am able to sing the song. Then we work on stylizing the piece and the acting component. She has so many tips and tricks to get those high notes! I love working with Shelby and plan to continue doing so.

Shelby is extremely versatile and can play a wide range of genres and styles. She has a phenomenal singing voice and is skillful at interpreting music and lyrics. She knows how to make bold artistic choices that enable her to express the music and the words in a song with dramatic intention, clarity and nuance. Shelby is dedicated to the discipline involved in developing her craft. She is mature, considerate and has a wonderful sense of humor.

Sarah
Shelby was super helpful! She picked great pieces for my audition and got them better than I could have expected. She is detail-oriented and picked up on little moments that made my package even better! She even took the time to help me film the monologue and song so that I would have it to send in for auditions. I can't wait to work with Shelby again!

David's class was interesting, challenging, and intellectually stimulating. I left feeling both energized and pleasantly spent. He is exactly the kind of Acting Teacher that I benefited from having discussions with about "the craft." Direct, curious, and thorough. It's also a class that I believe is accessible to actors of all levels, from novice to professional!

I hired David to work with teen and adult actors for a feature length film I directed. The impact that David had on the actors and on the success of the film have been phenomenal. He is a brilliant teacher! One of the teen actors said that he learned more from David in six lessons than he had in dozens of summer acting camps over the years. The adult actors were equally impressed. If you get a chance to work with David, I wouldn't miss it.

Daniel
David is a "one-of-a-kind" Acting Coach! I have been a professional in the industry for the last 10 years, and I attribute most of my success to David. David encouraged me to lean into my own interferences and self-consciousness in terms of acting, in order to get more comfortable with the unknown and my fears. I attribute David to my success because through this classes I was able to gain the rarest gift any acting teacher can give their student: confidence. I am a braver artist, a more present actor, and even a better person thanks to David's classes. Not only did David influence me as an actor/artist, I use his lessons every day when I teach my own Acting Classes in Chicago. I highly recommend him.

This course is designed for intermediate and advanced level students. If you are interested in a beginner's course in screenwriting, I highly recommend my creative writing program, geared towards understanding basic principles of writing.

Intermediate and advanced students will write and send in pages of their script. We will use our time as a workshop for delivering feedback and further developing a work-in-progress.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I accept my students regardless of gender, religion, sexuality, or race.

About Ian

Ian is currently obtaining an MFA in screenwriting from UGA under the mentorship of Holly Sorensen ("Step Up: High Water") and Christine Swanson ("Chicago PD"), alongside classmates including John Strauss ("There's Something About Mary") and Neil Landau ("Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead").

"I am currently taking private dance lessons with Briana and it's been a great experience. Never having danced before, I wanted private instruction to learn to move with music and to get a great cardio workout. Briana delivers on both accounts. She lets me choose the music, teaches me to dance with it, and I work up a great sweat! My goal is confidence when dancing to music and we are exploring different genres for our sessions.

Briana makes every class enjoyable, she is flexible with my crazy schedule, and it's easy to see that she loves what she does. I feel comfortable learning from her as she provides great feedback and suggestions. I hope to continue to dance with her! :-)"

Can You Really Learn Contemporary Dance Online?

Contemporary dance is the most expressive and subjective dance form, making it more accessible to outsiders and helpful as a supplement to other dance training. Contemporary choreography techniques help dancers harness the energy and emotion of their own bodies, resulting in a more fluid and organic form of movement that can appear effortless and completely improvised to the casual observer. You have a lot of options when it comes to learning, practicing, and performing modern dance. And with t …
