    Knowing Ms Collins she is self assured, dramatic, sufficient, feels life and send it forth!

    Angela coaching brought me so much insight that it’s changed my work as an actor. She is very knowledgeable about technique but she also brings her own brand of teaching to the table which is unique. It helped me break through and get my first Broadway show which ended up winning the Tony. Angela is a great coach. Period. It’s money well spent. I’m tired of seeing ads from other joker acting “teachers” who have no clue. She’s the real deal

    Angela really works with you to feel the emotion and use it for the role. She’s patient and answers questions. Angela is easy-going and a great inspirational coach.

It can vary from student to student. I find what level the student is and work with them through monologues, theatre exercises on finding your character. Method Acting techniques and how to audition, as well.

It varies based on distance to travel. Also, based on age of the student, level, etc.

How did you get started teaching?

From being in theatre with a children’s group. It was a children’s touring group. We ranged in age from 8-years-old to 20-years-old. As I was older (aged 19 on the 1st tour; 20 on the next). 

Along with my acting, singing and dancing roles; I also taught the younger members their roles, etc. When I was older, I was in groups doing theatre for children and teaching them, too.

Also, in classes with those my age, we coached each other.
