Acting and teaching acting has brought me the greatest joy. Seeing the confidence build in students is my why. Some come in as shy kids and leave with their head held high and the voices strong.
Amy is a true artist and has the most gracious heart! My daughter had the most amazing time in her class. She came home with such confidence!
The first thing I like to do is find their 'why'. Why acting, what draws them to it. (Question change depending on the age)
Then I like to gauge where they are in their on their acting journey and comfort level. Do they like comedy, drama, improv, monologues? (What would they like to work on)
Then we work on acting exercises, for each level.
I have a set curriculm/ exercises for each student level of acting.
For the little kids I love to incorporate reading into our acting classes, and art. Helping them become confident readers is my favorite bonus! They alsoget to create their own costumes and such.
I love working with indentifying beats, objective and tactics in scenes with the more advanced actors.
I have a Bachelars of Art, Theatre & Psychology UNCC (2009).
I was classically trained at the University of Tennessee (1995)
I also have 25 years in the film and television industry, producing, directing, and casting actors.
