    My service stands out because it’s an untamed, naive approach to acting that dares to imagine that no one has to learn to act, they merely need to remember. I believe that if we can tap into our bodies, our playfulness, or silliness, and quiet the grown-up, logical voices in us that we can remember how to play with the same investment we did as children. My approach is about how brave you can be, how alive you can feel, how hard you can pretend, how much fun you can have, not about measuring your “talent”, or getting you do it “right.” I can guide you through all

    I believe everyone should study theatre. Many of my students go on to have successful careers as performers and I’m thrilled, but that’s not why I teach. I don’t teach to create stars. I heard a celebrity acting teacher recently give a talk in which he said that in each class there are two or three with a “spark,” and he teaches for those and ignores the rest. I believe every student has a spark. I’ve seen it catch and burst out in the most surprising places. Make no mistake: I am not easy, I am tough. I do not settle for less than the best a student ha

Lauren Velez, Lou Martini, Jr., Lilias White and Sonja Sohn are among the many professional actors with whom I have worked. My approach to acting is hands-on in an atmosphere that is conducive to learning and free of any form of verbal abuse. The relationship between teacher and student must be one that is based on trust or learning will not occur.  Many of my students are working professionally today in theater, film and TV.  For more detailed information on my background and experience please go to www.alangor
