Acting Fundamentals

These sessions are designed for actors who have little to no formal acting background but have the desire to learn and understand technique. The sessions cover what is needed to become a successful actor, the building blocks that provide opportunity and how to apply the techniques.

These sessions are open to anyone who wants to try their hand at acting, as well as those who may already have a little experience but have no practical training. Students will learn to develop their Listening Skills, Body Language, Interaction and Improv Skills, while acting scenes in the moment. Using material from theatre, film or television, Acting Fundamentals offers the opportunity to learn:

  • How to Be Present In A Scene
  • How to Analyse A Script
  • What Are Your Objectives And How To Identify Them
  • How Actions & Tactics connect you with your partner in a scene, or to the scene itself

Acting Fundamentals is offered to small groups of 8 to 10 students at one time. Space is limited and demand high for these sessions.

Rates: $225 (6 weeks, 1 hour sessions)
All sessions must be booked and prepaid in advance
In person or ONLINE available. Please note at time of booking.

Private Acting Coaching

Private coaching with  me, Seika Groves enables you to receive one-on-one personalized guidance tailored to your specific needs as an actor. The attention and focus  will be on ‘you’.

One on one coaching provides you with the opportunity to work exclusively within the areas you need to improve. This may be removing emotional blocks and repressed energy or personal obstacles in or outside of your acting work. If you need more work on overcoming anxiety in the audition process etc…

These acting classes are coached by me personally!

I have a background in Accessing Archetypes, Movement, Relaxation and Focusing Techniques, as well  working with Energetic and Emotional Modalities to get to the root of any creative or emotional block or resistance.  I will teach you to find your best self and be present in the creative process.

These sessions are on-going and package rates are available.
I am available in person at my home in the Niagara region or online via Skype.
Please make sure your preference is checked off in the contact form.


Improv Training

Learn what makes the art of Improvisation so vital to an actor. Whether stage or screen, learning to improvise will make you a better, more well-rounded actor; ready for ANY situation that may arise!

Not all Improv is fun and games but it helps – these sessions teach the student how to use what happens in the moment to their advantage. Improv fundamentals, like those taught at Second City, teach the basics of storytelling, reaction, confidence, timing and using your brain at all times when reacting in the moment. Improv is fun for everyone, not just actors!

Rates: $175 (6 weeks 1 hr)
