Hello! I am an actor, and Voice Coach certified as a Patsy Rodenberg Associate. I teach the Rodenburg Presence and Second Circle Method. I see my coaching through the lens of social justice education, informed by my study of martial arts and meditation, and shaped by my own acting experience. I coach actors both privately and in production.

​​Acting! Dance! Music! Podcasting!— We can use these crafts to hold a mirror to ourselves and our environment. In my lessons, we'll work to celebrate, challenge, and spark curiosity about what we see in the reflection. Through mastering the art of listening and responding, we can better listen and respond to the dynamics of the world around us. MORE ABOUT ME (as found on my website, alexiamaree.com): As a child, Alexia loved school, but especially loved leaving early to rehearse at the Kennedy Center under the masterful wings of artists such as Debbie Allen and Arthur Mitchell. By the time she turned 16, Alexia had performed as a dancer, sin...

Your Acting Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do acting classes cost?

Acting classes cost $25 to $65 per hour on average for group classes or $50 to $150+ per hour to hire a private acting coach. Prices vary depending on where you live and the instructor's experience and reputation. Acting studios that offer ongoing weekly classes typically charge $150 to $350 per month.

Acting courses and workshops can cost as little as $200 to as much as $2,800+, depending on the content, number of sessions, and the instructor's demand. Some acting workshops are short, 1- or 2-day intensive classes focusing on one aspect of the industry, while other programs last 4 to 8 weeks and cover several topics, methods, and techniques.

Most studios offer a free trial class so you can get a feel for the teaching style and decide if it's right for you.

Are online acting classes worth it?

Online acting classes are worth it if you want to pursue acting and are unable to attend acting classes in person. With online video calling platforms like Zoom and Skype, you can now study acting with the best in the industry from the comfort of your own home! Many reputable acting coaches—including those right here on Lessons—now offer online acting classes and teach the same methods and techniques that they teach in the studio. 

Do you need acting classes to become an actor?

You technically don't need acting classes to become an actor. However, acting classes can help you gain confidence, learn new methods and techniques, analyze scenes and scripts, and build new industry connections and relationships. Acting classes can also teach you about the business side of acting, which is as important as acting itself.

How long do acting classes take?

Acting class length varies depending on the studio and the type of class. Some studios have 2-hour classes, while others have classes lasting 3 to 5 hours. Depending on the location, acting classes may be offered in several formats, such as ongoing weekly classes, weekend intensive workshops, and training programs that can run anywhere from 2 to 8+ weeks.

What skills do you need to be an actor?

While the necessary skillset varies depending on the type of acting you pursue (think Broadway theater vs. TV commercials vs. film), all actors need a broad range of skills to portray the expressions and emotions of a character so effectively that they temporarily transport the audience to a world where the actor is indeed that character. This often involves:

  • Memorizing lines and stage cues
  • Analyzing scripts and scenes
  • Developing a character's emotions and physical expressions
  • Working with other actors, directors, and production crews
  • Adapting to unexpected changes and situations
  • Speaking clearly and adjusting one's voice to align with the character
  • Learning and developing different acting methods and techniques
  • Being comfortable in front of an audience or camera

Nancy is truly a once-in-a-lifetime master teacher. She is endlessly perceptive, positive, and clear. After our sessions, my voice has made huge improvements-- and I've also found greater pleasure in using it and deeper understanding of how the voice works. I've learned such a tremendous amount from her as a teacher, and from her presence as a human being.
