Our Approach

BECOME AN EXTRAORDINARY ACTOR

Join acting coaches Isabel Lehoux and Jock MacDonald, alongside the extraordinary Straeon Acting Studios team, for a transformative experience that will take your acting skills to new heights. At Straeon, we believe every actor possesses a unique range of talents waiting to be discovered, and our tailored Scene Study Classes are designed to help you unlock your full potential.

At Straeon, we focus on Scene Study practices. Think of it as a gym for actors with incredible personal trainers. The only way to become an extraordinary storyteller is to act consistently and practice right! We keep our classes as close to the work environment as we possibly can, and we personalize our coaching to your needs to ensure you'll keep growing as an actor throughout your career. No technique fits all because we're all unique individuals, and you are the instrument in acting! To master the art of storytelling, you must understand your instrument, dare to go beyond technical excellency and develop your own unique methodology. We'll help you get there!

The coaches will assign you a scene and scene partner based on what they want you to work on. In the first work, we'll do just one take of your scene. That's based on a camera rehearsal on the set. The goal is to improve the quality of the work you bring to the set by giving us your best shot on that first take so you don't waste time warming up. The coaches will then provide some direction and notes on what you must explore to improve your scene. You'll work on the feedback with your scene partner, and we'll do a second work of that scene, but this time, we'll mimic the work on the set. We'll do several takes, you'll be coached and directed as we go, and we'll work on specific parts of the scene as we film your work.
