Wow! Amazing instructor! Gave me great advice that instantly improved the way I did my current scripts. Also, gave me a lot of industry advice on how to make a good demo reel.

I've been with Stephanie for a few months now and she has helped me so much! I remember being so nervous before our first class, but she is very patient and one of the least intimidating people I've ever met. You'll learn from the very best if you take lessons from her, and she'll get you on the right track to start landing auditions!

If you are a student preparing for your school, summer program, or college auditions, a newer actor who is trying to understand and find comfort in your audition process/self-tapes, or overall navigating your career as a new actor, then this is the space for you! I provide coaching on audition prep, self-tapes, strengthening acting techniques through monologues or scene study, and coaching on industry information to progress your career as a beginning actor such as manager/agent info, headshot preparation, self-branding, and character types.

My approach is to A) Help you find a deeper connection to your artistry/artistic spirit, B) Give you techniques to be in the moment at a much higher rate than you began with, C) Grounding techniques to bring yourself to a solid and trusting place with yourself as an actor as you navigate your career/audition.

I stray away from strong textual analysis and instead take an approach involving vivid character visualization, physical technique, and ...

I really like working with Olivia! As a current professional in the industry, Olivia can give up-to-date advice on what the industry is looking for and doesn't hesitate to share that knowledge with her students. Her classes are very specific, attentive, and you can see she genuinely cares about her students and their success. Olivia helps with whatever material you need for the day, and helps guide you to a performance that feels authentic, connected to you and proud of. Many of the things I've learned in her lessons, I've applied to other auditions and shows as well. 5/5 stars, would work with her again.

After a long time of searching for an acting coach, I finally met Darius.

His coaching approach is very unique and truly changed my career and skill as an actor. He has a depth of knowledge and is very caring.

I highly recommend Darius.
Jordyn
Taking classes with Darius was tons of fun. Helped me through a few problems with a monologue I needed to learn and helped add another layer to it that I didn't even think of. I definitely recommend taking one of his classes as it'll help you reach into whatever piece you're working on and draw out something new for your character work and overall understanding of the play/film/show. if you're wondering whether you should do it or not, I say, take the class! In the long run, you'll be grateful for the help.

I am a music teacher and I am very picky about who my son takes lessons with because I can tell right away if someone knows what they are doing. I could tell from the first lesson that Tanya was knowledgeable and she cared about giving good instruction. Tanya does not dumb down the material; she makes the student work. Nevertheless, my son is very happy with his lessons and tells all his friends how much fun he is having! The balance between discipline and fun is difficult to achieve but Tanya does it effortlessly. Kudos!

I give acting lessons and coaching in all aspects of acting, based in the celebrated Meisner Technique, which I've taught for over 30 years. I teach a full technique program for those who want to study the whole system which includes, improvisation, scene work and character work, cold readings, monologue development and much much more. For those who already have experience or are professional actors I offer high-level coaching, taking your auditions to the next level, and working with you on your current scripts and projects to magnify your focus, intentions and behaviors so that you can sharpen your performances to the highest degree. I am experienced in theater, film, tv and commercial work, and have tailored techniques for all of these areas. I've refined cold reading technique so that you can quickly break down a script into essentials and win roles, or even go in completely cold and work super-effectively directly off the script. Super-sharp script breakdowns for film roles,
