Julie Martin’s supportive teaching style is a deep look into mastering the foundation elements of improvisational acting.  Julie, in a safe space, encourages you to  trust your creative center, to trust yourself.  Her 10 years of directing and performing in shows,  along with 13 years of teaching experience allows her to teach the inner game of performing.  She encourages you to rise to your potential, while you develop moves to strengthen your performance on stage.

Improv mastery happens within deep and present listening and taking the possibilities offered on stage.

Meet your inspired and creative nature, learn to execute comedic scenes on the spot. She specializes in bringing out your confidence as you accelerate your improv skill.  If you would like to up your game,  or if you are a beginner looking to start,  Julie will support your developing talent.

Games are used to simplify the learning process, to enable you to build flow on stage while training you to think outside the box! Mastering improv skills in a safe, supportive class environment allows you the freedom to develop confidence, savvy, spontaneity, presence and humour.  Julie’s coaching and class sessions are held throughout the year in Manhattan/ Redondo/ Hermosa Beach.
