About this pro

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!

How did you get started teaching?

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.

What types of students have you worked with?

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.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

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!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1.) What are you looking for in regards to training?

2.) This is a commitment. Are you commited?
