We are AEA actors located in the NYC/central Texas areas available for monologue coaching/script analysis/musical theatre song workshopping/college audition prep/audition filming/and overall training in the craft of acting.
We are both graduates from several nationally recognized training programs. Shane studied musical theatre at the esteemed Gainesville Theatre Alliance near Atlanta, Ga and Chris at the American Dramatic and Muscial Academy in New York city. We then decided to get degrees in classical acting and both graduated top of our class from Texas State University's prestigious Acting BFA program and have worked professionally in national tours and regional theatres across the country.
We approach our students with the same expectations and standards as we would on the collegiate level, but we also understand that the art of theatre takes vulnerability, bravery and openness and so we always lead with kindness, understanding and full support.
Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Beautiful...and just Breathe!

Prior to the initial meeting, we will assess the students needs and skill level in order to provide coaching appropriate for what is needed.
The focus of each lesson depends on what the student needs at the time (audition/college audition preperation/audition filming) or overall lessons to teach techniques and craft focusing on script analysis/methodology.

We both believe that longevity and skill are contingent on training. Seeing a lack of serious acting training in the area and meeting several students who desired more training, we decided to offer our services to share the knowledge and techniques we have accumulated over the years.
Our students range in age from 10 all the way to adults of all ages. We strongly believe that you are never too young or old to start/continue training.
If you have a love for acting and want to seriously improve your skills and training, reach out! Also, you need to make sure that you enjoy your teachers. A lot of this is dependent on the students openness and commitment to the craft, so if you don't feel a comfortability with your teacher, you might want to find a place where you do. Set goals for yourself to work towards. Having a destination makes the journey more rewarding!
