Brenna The Acting Coach


About this pro

I have a Masters in Acting from California Institute of the Arts. I have over 9 years of experience in the professional and academic world of acting. I just moved from Los angeles, and have participated in commercials as well as feature films. My main experience lies in professional, new theatre. I have experience with numerous voice and movement techniques, Linklater, Roy Hart, Fitzmaurice, Grotowski, and Skinner releasing. As someone who has struggled with audition anxiety myself, I am very passionate about breaking through blocks, fear, and anxiety, and finding a technique that works for you!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to sit down and talk about where you are at in your process. I want to hear from you, how you are feeling, what you need, and what your goals are- so that we can move forward with techniques that work for you. That's why I believe the first session should be completely free of charge, so you can use the time to connect and discuss what you want to do with your acting coaching sessions!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

MFA- California Institute of the arts and a BA from Juniata college in acting & theatre creation. I have experience with commercial acting work, film technique, and shakespearean performance.  

Fitzmaurice Voicework- 4 years

Roy Hart- 3 years

Linklater- 1 year

Growtowski-1 year 

Skinner Releasing/Open Source Movement- 4 years

Speech - 3 years
