Karen VaccaroActing Coaching

I've been training actors since 1985, from the beginner to the seasoned professional, My gift as a teacher lies in my ability to tap into the spirit and soul of each actor creating a unique and powerful authenticity in their work. Many of my students are working in NY, LA and Chicago markets.

I employ an eclectic approach to my teaching. Using Stanislavsky as a base, I use the tools and approaches of many teachers including but not limited to Sandford Meisner, Lee Strasberg, Eric Morris, Michael Shurtleff, Michael Chekhov and Robert Cohen, along with ones I have developed myself.

I offer classes and private coaching (locally and remotely) in...

  • Shakespeare
  • Audition prep for TV, film and commercials
  • Audition prep for BFA, MFA, URTA
  • The business of acting
