I have been a professional actor and improviser for over 25 years.
Many of my on-camera acting jobs require improvisation as well as the skills I learned as a theatre actor.
I work almost every day either teaching acting, performing or recording voiceovers for many TV, internet and radio projects.
Our classes are stress-free and taught with the Viola Sploin training methods she created many years ago.
She trained all the early actors at The Second City and early Saturday Night Live actors as well.
We offer a safe non-judgemental atmosphere.
I enjoyed the journey of coaching the creativity out of a group and the interaction they do as a result of the things they learned.
Everyone has an awesome personality to share with the world!
The class welcomes and integrates everyone from all levels of skill and age. It’s a warm, friendly place to learn and/or brush up on what you’ve already done.
the fun of getting outside your head and concentrating making the other people look good; learning the ability to work with all kinds of people; just the all out fun of performing'
I am a family entertainer and the importance of making everyone else look good when performing is extremely important. Also, I like the creative flow that the class brings, allowing your ideas to mix with everyone else's, as well as, you can use what you learned immediately in your own show, like I do, or in interviews.
Pat is extremely knowledgeable about improv and is happy to share what he knows. His classes are always a good time and I'm a better performer because of them.
We work in groups and tailor the lessons to the individuals and their experience level.
