Acting coach

teacher who trains performers

See also: Drama school

An acting coach or drama coach is a teacher who trains performers – typically film, television, theatre, and musical theatre actors – and gives them advice and mentoring to enable them to improve their acting and dramatic performances, prepare for auditions and prepare better for roles.

Qualifications and roles[edit]

Acting coaches need to have a "talent...for reading people, all their utterances and body language."[1] Acting coaches have been called "people whisperers", a reference to "horse whisperers" who help to train animals.[1] Acting coach Ivana Chubbuck states that one of her roles is to ensure that "every actor...must know what the character's objective is in a scene—to win someone's love, respect, sympathy, whatever—and then must have a ruthlessness about achieving the objective."[1] Chubbuck works with actors to help them to connect with the emotion inside the character.[1] Acting coaches also " [drama] students audition for college".[2] Acting coach and actor Woodell-Mascall is "...skilled at zeroing in on what young actors need to do to improve their performance." Woodell-Mascall tells one student actor to "...really think about who [the character] is and what she's feeling. It's got to be real.[2] She provides constructive criticism to students. Woodell-Mascall has helped students to get into drama programs at schools "...including NYU, Juilliard, Rutgers and UCLA".[2] Some acting coaches use an "...approach and technique of acting training [that] are considered established, proven methods of creating the [dramatic] work", such as using the "...methodology of Constantin Stanislavski, Stella Adler, Uta Hagen, Lee Strasberg, and Sanford Meisner."[3]

Some acting coaches provide students with a DVD or SD card recording of their acting, for the student to review their progress.

Notable individuals[edit]

Major acting coaches include: Larry Moss, Ivana Chubbuck, Michelle Danner, Maggie Flanigan, Terry Schreiber, David Mamet, Lee Strasberg, Michael Woolson, Stella Adler, Chambers Stevens, Sanford Meisner, Justin Trudeau

Working conditions[edit]

Acting coaches may be freelancers who are hired for an hourly or daily rate, or they may be hired on a longer-term basis by a film studio, production company or theatre company. Some acting coaches have developed their own unique methods and founded their own acting schools. Acting coaches' income varies a great deal from one coach to another. For example, an acting coach providing training to a community theatre troupe or a high school musical earns much less than an acting coach training top Hollywood celebrities. Acting classes are often provided in person; however, with the widespread availability of high-speed Internet, some coaches offer mentoring online over Skype or other video linkups. Acting coaches may offer private coaching, group sessions or a combination of both.

Other roles[edit]

In some cases, acting coaches are hired to train singers in acting skills. Popular music singers may need to learn acting skills for their live concert shows, which sometimes include staged sequences, and for performing in music videos. For example, Goth-rocker Amy Lee was provided with an acting coach by her record label. In Classical music, singers performing staged operas may get help from an acting coach to prepare them for their roles. Sometimes CEOs and other leaders hire acting coaches to help them improve their performance of speeches and other general communications activities. While most acting coaches mentor actors, some also coach directors on how to improve their direction of actors. Some acting coaches offer introductions to the acting industry, to help new actors learn about auditions, the casting process, the role of agents, key acting terminology (e.g., "callback" auditions), and about important industry organizations.

Intimacy coordinator[edit]

In the television and film industry, in 2018, some production companies are hiring an "intimacy coordinator" to ensure that actors and actresses' sexual consent is obtained before shooting romantic scenes and simulated sex scenes.[4] To address concerns about the "vulnerability...and the massive power balance that can happen when a powerful showrunner or director asks an actress or get naked and simulate sex for the camera", HBO hires an intimacy coordinator for these scenes. The intimacy coordinator is a mix of an acting coach (who makes sure that scenes look realistic) and an advocate for actors and actresses who ensures that the onscreen performers' boundaries are respected and that their physical and emotional comfort is protected.[4]

How to Become An Acting Coach

By Faizah Imani

A good acting coach is both an asset and mentor to aspiring actors.

There is a saying in Hollywood that those who can't act “teach.” This saying is a result of so many unsuccessful actors who turn to coaching as a means to earn temporary income. However, there are some really great acting coaches out there who are truly gifted in developing aspiring actors. No formal training is required to work as an acting coach. However, it is certainly recommended. Actors want to work with a coach who understands the craft of acting and has a successful track record coaching other actors.

Learn one of the popular acting techniques, such as method acting, improvisation, Meisner, Stanislavsky and Chekhov. These techniques teach you all about the craft of acting, including how to be true to the characters you play and how to develop an emotional range. One way to learn various acting techniques is to pursue a bachelor's degree or higher in theater or performing arts. Alternatively, attend local acting workshops and classes taught by top acting coaches.

Master one or more of the techniques you learn about. Start auditioning for acting roles using the techniques you learn. When you consistently book roles using the techniques you want to teach, it's a good sign that you have mastered the technique well enough to coach others.

Test the waters before becoming a full-fledged acting coach. One way to do this is to start mentoring other actors for free to see if your coaching skills generate results for others. Once you are certain you have the skills it takes to be an acting coach, branch out to other actors. Be sure to get testimonials from some of the actors you mentored. Use these testimonials to attract other actors.

Set a price for your acting classes. As a new coach, it's common practice to offer a free audit or discounted price to interested actors. Top acting coaches charge anywhere from $40 or more per class, depending upon the coach.

Set a date for your first class. Market your upcoming class to actors. Post the class announcement in areas where actors congregate, such as casting-call forums. Use social media sites such as FaceBook and Twitter to help spread the word about your classes.

Attract more actors by including a link to your online portfolio, website or Internet Movie Database (IMDB) page on your marketing materials. By doing so, you demonstrate your professional acting experience. Most actors want to know that your technique works before investing money in your classes. Your professional portfolio speaks for itself.

Keep a record of how many roles your actors booked before taking your classes as opposed to how many roles they book after taking your classes. Use this valuable information when marketing your classes. Don't forget to add a testimonials page to your website.
