Mr. Ray J is a great teacher with patience. My 13yrs old boy is an international student who doesn’t speak English very well and
only had chance to have 6 hours class during our trip to US. But my boy likes Mr. Ray’s class very much, we hope to come back to DC and learn from Ray again.

Raycurt was very flexible in his planning, charming in person and very good (and patient!) with my six-year-old would-be drummer.

Bgcheck Background Checked


I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

Robert is super easy to talk to and he has great ideas. He leads with passion, curiosity and understanding and opened new worlds to me. Although I was a terrible student, Robert made me realize how much potential I have and now I'm exploring many new things on my own. I'm very tankful!

We will start by talking about structure and the pitfalls of the three act structure. Then we will work on character motivation and how to keep the story compelling. Finally we will work on the most common pitfall for screenwriters, dialog. Through my experience working with producers, I have been able to see and work on a number of scripts so I can also help you lear how to get your script in front of producers.

When I can't follow a sequence, he has a way of breaking things down. Jared is always working on new choreography. There's a lot of variety in his style, and it's a ton of fun. Highly recommend!"
