Welcome to

 

We're an international acting school with a simple mission: help you to claim your right to be a storyteller. At Straeon, we believe every human being has what it takes to be an extraordinary actor. Stories are an essential part of who we are as a species; we're born with it!  We guide hundreds of actors from all over the world every year through personalized training. Your path is unique; it's never been done before, and we would be honored to go on this journey with you.

the coaches

Hi! We're Isabel Lehoux and Jock MacDonald,
Straeon's co-founders, and acting coaches.
 
We coach hundreds of actors from all over the world every year, and we give each one of them personalized training. We also act, write, and direct. We believe we have no business telling you what to do if we can't do it ourselves! This approach keeps Straeon evolving. Storytelling changes with time, and so should acting classes. Watch our video to learn more about our process, or have fun exploring our site; we have tons of free lessons and tips for you!
