About The Course


    At Straeon, we focus on the practice of Scene Study, but we also offer an array of technique workshops. The only way to become an extraordinary storyteller is to practice every day. Think of Straeon as a gym for actors and the coaches as your personal trainers.  


We keep our classes as close to the work environment as we possibly can. Our coaching is tailored to your needs to ensure you keep growing as an actor throughout your career. We also have an incredible network of actors, writers, and directors who are proactive at creating their own work.

The coaches assign you a new scene and scene partner every two weeks. In the first week, we'll do a first work based on your first take on the set. The goal is to improve the quality of the work you bring to the set so that you don't have to waste several takes warming up. The coaches will give you directions, notes and ideas on what you need to improve. Then, you take them home and work on them.  

In the following week, we'll do a second work of that scene. This time around, we'll mimic the work on the set, and we'll do several takes and work on specific parts of the scene.
We'd be honoured if you let us be a part of your journey!

Why Co-Coached?

 We've been working together for 15 years, and our co-coaching approach came from our experience co-directing movies and plays. When you have an unbalanced scene and only one coach, the coach usually focuses on one actor to fix the scene, leaving the other on the sidelines. That doesn't happen in a co-coached environment. We focus on both actors, and you get the same amount of coaching. The other benefit of co-coaching is getting different perspectives. The co-coaching method has opened our clients' eyes to how many possibilities a scene can have. As a result, they feel more confident to explore outside the box rather than trying to "get the scene done the right way." We want our clients to take risks knowing that there's not just one way of playing the scene. It also keeps quite fun for us, the coaches!
