ABOUT CAROLINE’s work with actors…

Why not share authentically without apology in an environment that creates support and belief in your work. Teaching evolved to meet the desires of all these terrific, mindful, talented performers I would meet in casting sessions and throughout the years working in theatre. There was also a strong need to update personal brand as well as in-depth, clear coaching for auditions. I am dedicated to the success of the professional actor. My background in casting film, television and commercials gives me a unique perspective on the process expected in the meeting and the audition process. We’ll work to clarify realistic and achievable goals in any acting career and provide a practical system to help any actor who is serious about creating a lasting career as an industry professional. I’m here to tell you that you already possess everything to deliver the best performance under every circumstance. Let’s work it!
