With a wealth of experience across a variety of mediums, I can cater the lesson to your needs. My methodologies include Suzuki, Viewpoints, Commedia dell Arte, The Method, Acting for Camera, Improvisation, Physical Theatre and Devising, including advanced training with Frantic Assembly. We can explore one or several of these disciplines to help you create character and expand your skills.
I'm a big fan of student led learning, eg. following students passions and slipping in the 'nuts and bolts' once they are sufficiently hooked, employing a range of theatre games, movement and mime. We run through the basics of improvisation such as 'making an offer', 'yielding', 'building on an offer', and much more.
As a theatrical actor and director, my main approach to students is giving them a fundamental grounding in traditional methodology. I am familiar with the works of Stanislavski as well a Grotowski and Arteau. My area of interest centres around Physical Theatre, namely Stage Combat.
My teaching methods and styles are mostly interactive, upbeat and demonstrative. However they are catered specifically to my students and their individual needs. In all this, I do not loose focus of the lesson objective, and am clear in reiterating the importance of this objective to the students.
I approach tutoring by treating my students not as a child, but as a person with their own interests and skills. The main reason I didn't become a teacher is because I know how the education system fails the majority of students. I want to work with people to enhance their abilities in a way that works for them. This makes them more inclined to learn, as well as enjoying the subject.
My methodology when it comes to acting is being self centered and teaching my students how to achieve that. I am also very specific and constructive when it come to performance criticism. I give my students room to understand where they see themselves in the character they are playing and ways in which they can realistically bring that character and emotion to life.
My approach to teaching starts with the student understanding of the craft and understanding of self through physical exercises and techniques (starting with the voice) - Understanding of self is vital in the process of finding your theatrical 'truth' and developing your fluidity and confidence as an actor and acting student.
My teaching method is catered to individual students, and/or groups of students who wish to explore their own ability to make and create works. My philosophy involves research and development, with a thorough exploration as to how they intersect, and how one can influence the other.
My teaching methodology is to make my students as comfortable as they can be through guiding them into a world of their own. using drama students are able to express themselves in an environment which is most comfortable for them.
My teaching style is always positive and if feedback would be constructive I will always deliver it in a respectful and useful manner. The way I see it, much of learning drama is allowing yourself to play in front of other people. I am extremely gentle and will try to foster a space of self-expression and fun.
I approach each topic by ensuring there are physical elements. The best way to learn is to get involved and do something... and have fun while doing it too. I try to get everyone up and moving and work on boosting confidence.
Drama, isn't about me telling you what to do. It's about you exploring what your capable of. I help students understand the fundamentals of drama, and push them to their limits. So they can produce the work they want to create.
My classes are filled with learning and building your talent whilst being very enjoyable. Depending on the student, my class structure can focus on one or more areas of acting, alternatively the class can cover all areas of acting with the lesson being less specialised. Classes are available for all ages and experience levels.
I work through visual tools and improvisational games that gives you the agency to reach your aim your way. I normally devise work in groups of three at least, but have worked with individuals in private rehearsal sessions. Golden rule is less is more.
My Acting classes are based on the Stanislavskian school of Method acting. Acting classes are for the stage and screen. Voice and Speech classes are inspired by the work of the legendary Cicely Berry, Voice and Speech coach of the Royal Shakespeare Company(U.K).
First and most importantly is the style of actor you want to be, once we go from there we can build on that idea. I have been in a great variety of productions and have had to practice many different acting styles from children's theater to Shakespeare, knowing when to be comedic and how much comedy is needed at the given moment and when to be dramatic.
I work collaboratively with students, focusing on a teacher-led interactive methodology that prioritizes process driven character development, internalization, physicality and developing a strong understanding of creative practitioners and cultural theory.
When I teach and/or tutor any subject the first thing I find out is what the student/students actually know and can already do. The next step is to focus on understanding the questions they are required to answer. Then we build on prior knowledge, explore the topic and follow a plan to complete the required tasks/assignments.
My teaching method is tailored to each students type of learning. Be it visual, auditory or tactile, I can tailor my lessons to the student. I also want to build up my students and nurture an environment where they feel comfortable to grow, ask questions and fail.
I am able to teach all major styles of theatre including: Greek and Shakespearean, Epic, Absurdist, Australian Gothic, Realism, Melodrama, Musical Theatre, Improvisation and Commedia del Arte. I also enjoy working with beginners who want to explore acting and theatre as a personal interest, to refine their skills in scripted drama.
Who do you want to be? Why? Instead you can be a ghost. Learn how to observe the relationship of spirit and decay, and harness the forces that bind us together. A new style of time management guaranteed to dazzle and mystify.
I cover a range of acting, voice and movement methods based on your learning needs. Lessons to fit any level are both fun and challenging.
Performance Mime.Contemperory and Classical. Butoh Dance and Movement. Singing. Character. Make Up. Costumes. ,Mask, Yoga. Meditation. Pierrot Style Mime. Mime tells a story without words. Butoh works with a Spiritual Energy and Flow and has no discipline or form and eveolves into what it becomes.
Miesner, Stella Alden, Constantin Stanislavski and much more.
My number one focus point is encouragement; I am committed to making sure a student knows when their efforts are valued and encouraging them to excel while making sure to celebrate their successes. Flexibility and patience are also important to me: I love finding the right way to explain a particular concept to an individual student as each student learns differently.
I enjoy teaching in a theoretical way, with different experiences and ideas. I believe repetition, patience and a positive attitude can be very beneficial in learning.
I am a student centred teacher and work a lot with creating depth and meaning for performers. This means we could be studying scripts, writing, working on characters or creating meaningful work through physical warm ups and improvisations.
Acting Teaching Methodology Christina teaches method acting skills (based on Stanislavasky and Meisner acting techniques). Helping students to bypass their own mental mind blocks and becoming more “present” and “in the moment” – in other words, learning to trust in their native feeling state, rather than the rigidity of the mind.
I base my classes off of many other Acting classes and Drama techniques. We will Explore Physical Theatre, Contemporary theatre, Verbatim Theatre, Brecht Theatre, and Stanislavski. I am young an easy to get along with, anyone is welcome no matter your Religion Or Ethnicity, my classes are a safe space.
I love getting to know people and then bringing out the best in them. Very often people would love to be on stage but feel like they are not confident enough. This is my best challenge - finding the key to confidence and bringing that out. I have so many wonderful experiences and methods to use to help you grow as an actor, performer and musical artist.
