What Is CLASS with


CLASS with COLLEEN is a functional space where you can exercise YOUR Useful Preparation, practice your audition skills, explore new skills, and participate in a collaborative process and grow from it. Actors need a place to keep the rust off, a space to land when things are busy, ask complicated questions that have complicated answers, work through transitions in their process & career, and to get ready for the “Big Audition” before they get the call for the “Big Audition.”

What Is the CLASS Format?

You will receive individual, handpicked audition sides from me, prepare them and bringing them in to class as if it was an audition. Using the framework of the audition, we will explore what Useful Preparation means for the individual actor, and engage different acting exercises and preparation techniques to ensure that actors are bring their best possible work to their auditions and beyond. We will, of course, be working on-camera for portions of the class.


For those of you who have worked one-on-one with me, the format will be very familiar.


How Do I Sign-Up?

To Sign-Up for CLASS with COLLEEN, email me directly at


For new students, I often schedule an intro phone call before your first class. Having an individual, one-on-one discussion with you helps me determine if CLASS with COLLEEN is the right fit for you.

The Inspiration...

I take frequent hikes with 2 dear friends who have been an integral part of my artistic community since my days of being a young & wild actor in NYC. My time spent with them always reminds how important cultivating community is to having a healthy artistic life & career. Many of you have already been a part of creating wonderful communities, and some of you are aspiring to build or find a new community. CLASS with COLLEEN is to expand and continue cultivating my own community through the support of The Sanford Meisner Center!
