Teacher: Emma Paunil | Sundays at 12:00PM-2:00PM

On-going Class

 The Acting Class (9-13) is a class grounded in improvisation techniques for developing empathy as a beginning film actor. This course helps our students develop not only foundational pillars in acting — such as empathy and emotions — but additionally leaves our students with a more developed sense of personal identity. Through improvisation fun and games, we will be reflecting on examples from our own lives that can be used as aspiring actors. 


Emma Paunil has education experience across the world — including in Namibia, Africa where she worked with scholars on identity development, and studied environmental impacts on fears and limitations.  She co-developed a graduate support program for middle schoolers in order to develop positive habits and goal setting practices. Currently, she is a professional actress and model,  pursuing a Master’s degree through the University of Arizona’s College of Education. 

She is also known for Positive, The Tiny House Movie and When I Sing (2018).

Scene Study

Teacher: Tony Eckstat | Mondays at 6:30PM-9:30PM

On-going Class
What makes an actor great? What makes a scene great?


A great scene and acting performance has many complex layers. There's emotions, objectives, obstacles, blocking, character choices, and oh my can it get overwhelming. To really nail a scene you need to peel back every layer and nail every one of these. This class helps you do just that. This is one of our on-going classes. Every night you perform and take a deep dive into a scene you continue to work on for multiple weeks.

Tony Eckstat has been acting for 20 years and has experience across many acting fields including stage, radio, commercials  (including clients like Adobe software and the Seattle Mariners), and film ("Postmarked" and many others which you find on his IMDB page below).
