Acting Coach: Derek Miller

Improvisation is an increasingly sought after skill.

In this workshop, we'll  use improvisation as a tool to bring more of 'yourself' to commercial, TV and film.


Los Angeles Acting Coach Derek Miller will expertly guide participants on the use of key improvisation strategies and techniques to explore connection to character, make dialogue your own and enhance scripts and sides with strong, distinct choices.


This class was extremely successful in Los Angeles - with actors praising its effectiveness in bookings and bringing a better sense of self to auditions and to set.
