Online Acting Lessons & Acting Coaches
Our Acting Coaches are ready to help you shine! Our one-on-one, online acting lessons allow you to start your acting training by establishing a strong acting foundation, refine your acting technique, work on monologue audition technique, explore film, television, and commercial and on-camera work, Shakespeare verse technique, dialects and accents for the actor, and/or acting through song and musical theatre scene technique.
Our Acting Coaches are professional NYC actors with graduate level training (M.F.A. in Acting). They are up-to-date on the latest acting industry trends, trained to teach acting in all different mediums (theatre to on-camera) in your online acting lessons, and are experts on the audition process. They have worked with students of all ages on a range of acting material available throughout the theatrical canon from the Greeks to Shakespeare to Chekhov to Williams to the latest contemporary plays, films, and television shows being written today.
In your one-on-one, online acting lesson with your Acting Coach via Skype/FaceTime, you will choose an acting goal in your first online acting lesson (as specific as how to learn a British accent or as general as how to perform a monologue) and you will receive a hand-selected audition monologue or audition scene that matches your goal. In your online acting lessons, you will work on that monologue or scene material in-depth with your acting coach, breaking apart the material moment-to-moment and adding specificity and applying solid acting technique to your work. You will also receive a Voice and Speech Acting Warm-up Video Series to practice between acting lessons and auditions.
