Training for Acting and Public Speaking


In-Person, On-Line, Classes, Workshops and Private Session Options

ON-LINE Coaching & Saturday Foundation Classes

Starting September 19 until Mid-December, on Saturdays we offer 3 programs you can take one after the other for a foundation in Dramatic Improvisation, Audition Technique and The Chubbuck Technique used by Academy Award Winning Actors. All three classes are good for new and experienced actors. Choose one, two or all three. Classes are small so we can meet your needs according to your skill set.


I have had a request for an ON-LINE Scene Study Class. Before setting a time, I would like your input as to what times work best for those of you who are interested.


Most On-Line Class offerings have turned into In-Person classes - because that is what most actors want these days. On-Line Options for all of our classes can still be made available via Zoom. Call me and we can set something up.


Check out our New Dramatic Improv class on Saturday mornings.


We social distance in class as much as possible and wear a mask when we cannot. Class size is limited. We are careful for folks with pre-existing conditions. Please bring a mask along with a notebook to class. Some classes have recommended books.


I am looking forward to Fall 2020 Classes. I will see you soon!


Warm regards,

Maureen Cashin Bolog

Have you ever notice how many voices you hear around you every day?

Voice Over is a growing and exciting industry that can be overwhelming to dive into. It is exciting to imagine about sharing your voice on TV, radio, or video games, or even audio books. Pod Casting also continues to grow and is a wonderful way to reach new people to share your thoughts, interests, and ideas and personality! There are many more opportunities that you might not have even thought of, such as corporate training programs, explainer videos, phone systems, and chat bots!

There is so much to learn from market trends, equipment, how to record and edit your voice, creating characters, and achieving your authentic voice to connect with listeners. In the Professional Voice Over Technique class, you’ll get hands on experience with a microphone and digital workstation (DAW).

You’ll learn what you need to get started with a new hobby or even a new career!
