April’s Teaching…

April has studied with many of the top acting teachers and coaches in the country and loves to share her knowledge to help fellow actors. She is familiar with several approaches to acting including Meisner, Stanislovsky, and Uta Hagen; as well as the adapted approaches of many current master teachers like Larry Moss, D.W. Brown, Bob Krakower, and more. It is important to April that her students see acting as a colloborative art form where they show up prepared with ideas, but are open to change. She teaches them to take in and interpret multiple forms and  styles of direction. Using this varied approach, many of her students become not only working actors, but the type of actors that directors love to work with.
