I audited a few different teachers, but felt a natural connection with Wayne. He has a transparent and direct teaching style, which made me feel at ease. The class is structured into three different years that build upon each other with breaks in December and August to allow the material to sink in. With the additional partner rehearsals each week, the class feels very thorough and academic.
Wayne holds the class to very high standards and expects everyone to put in the effort. Overall, I think finding a teacher that you have a connection with is more important than anything and I personally really like Wayne. Hes authentic, intelligent, and humorous. I also really like the Meisner focus of the program theres an emphasis on being naturally yourself and creating genuine connections with the other actors.
If youre looking for a new class and dont know where to start, his studio is perfect. I was very nervous my first few classes, but after six months I feel like Ive made some really great new friends and am digging deeper into the complex craft of acting.
