I provide intensive or long-term acting, voice/speech, and movement training on a large, small group or one-on-one basis to actors, improv groups, as well as those who are trying to find ease while speaking or being in front of people. Past clients include: children & adults with speech impediments, gym instructors, corporate executives, musicians, as well as actors. You get a unique experience that has its roots in theater training!
My teaching style is relaxed, warm, and easy with a focus on the student as collaborator in their training. We go to the heart of the problem/desire/goal and work outwards from there. I believe this work is rooted in the whole physical body being the vehicle for the most honest expression and the exercises used reflect that philosophy. A combination of acting, movement, and vocal techniques are used in every session with everyone who works with me.
The techniques and exercises students learn come from a variety of sources: Meisner, Stanislavski, Grotowski, The SITI Company & Viewpoints, , Laban, Butoh, Patsy Rodenburg, Lorna Marshall, The Alexander Technique, Spolin, and Thomas O'Connor to name a few.
All levels of experience are welcome! I can help you with auditions, scene work and monologues, speech preparation, public speaking, speech impediments, and stage fright.
I believe and teach that performance and presentation in any style should be uncannily authentic. The work you do should feel good. My mantra: If it doesn't feel good, it doesn't look or sound as good as it can.
Many people who have worked with me often ask, "Was that right?"
I don't believe in 'right' or 'correct'. There is only the feeling of being honest, authentic, genuine.
