Three years of training at Acting Studio Chicago has led to 2 very successful years of professional acting, with multiple plays, musicals and film projects on my resume. Actors "act", though we sometimes get too caught up in emoting or trying to tell a story. The axiom that has resonated with me is "Show, don't tell". I teach the system Acting Studio does, that of Michael Shurtleff in his book Audition. Through 12 (plus one added later) guideposts, he talks about choosing actions designed to affect your scene partner(s) that are transitive (they are done to your scene partners), repeatable, and yet flexible enough to adapt when the moment calls for it.
The only thing that moves me as much as acting is helping others find their voice and speak their story. We all bring our own experiences to acting, and as Kurt Neabig tolds us in our first introduction to acting, "You/We are enough." Bringing yourself to every role is what you do differently and better than anyone else. No one can be a better you, and when You show up in the role, the words and action can be natural and real, instead of staged and stilted.

Darryn was a great acting teacher ! He coached myself and a fine arts team for a few years and he gave us great tips and advice on how to grow as a an actor on stage. He used his experience to help us with blocking and growing our acting techniques. I had an overall great experience working with him.
