About this pro

Hello! My name is Alex Boyt and I am an energetic, enthusiastic, and sassy theatre artist looking for students seeking a challenging and rewarding experience in artistic growth. If that sounds like you I would love to have you join my studio! I also teach beginning German if that is something that interests you. I have worked professionally in theatre and opera and I hold a BA in Theatre with a minor in Music Education and focuses in directing, stage management, and costumes. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions, I can't wait to hear from you and get started on your journey!

I love recognizing the potential in students that they themselves may not even know how to access and then finding a way to tap into that talent. There's nothing better than that moment when someone makes a breakthru and experiences that joy- feeling so proud and confident.

  • Rachel B.

    I was fortunate enough to work with Alex at an academic summer camp. I observed him instructing and leading students on many occasions and in a variety of tasks including performance. Alex is patient, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. His fantastic communications skills and fun yet professional demeanor make him an ideal instructor!

  • Rachel D.

    I have worked with Alex as a performer, stage manager, and co-teacher and have found him to be exceptionally intuitive in all three roles. Alex has an amazing ability to nurture talent in others through genuine interest in their goals as well as the knowledge and patience to help reach them. You will not find a more supportive, enthusiastic, or caring educator than Alex.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to have an initial introductory meeting at a reduced rate where I get to know the student, learn their goals and reason for starting their journey, and outline the ways I can help get them focused and started on their path. Depending on student experience level, I typically start with more foundational techniques/tools (i.e.- Breathing, The anatomy of the voice, Physicality/body energy) and then I typically move on to text analysis transitioning into scene study/monologue coaching and start to really focus on the type of art they like to make. This process is completely unique to the student's needs, no two students are exactly the same so why should their coachings be cookie cutter? I am always very clear from the start that our time together is solely for their growth and training. If there ever is something I am not qualified to train them in I will be the first to admit that and happily refer them to resources and/or other teachers to supplement their training.
