why co-coached?

 two coaches

 double feedback

 double growth

All our classes in Montreal are co-coached. We have been working together for 13 years, and our co-coaching approach came from our experience co-directing movies and plays. What we noticed early on is that when you have an unbalanced scene and only one coach, the coach usually tends to focus on one actor in order to fix the scene, leaving the other one sidelined. That doesn't happen in a co-coached class. We'll naturally focus on both actors, and you'll 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 be able to take risks knowing that there's not just one way of playing the scene. It also keeps quite fun for us, the coaches!

If you want to come by one of our classes for free and see it all for yourself, book a free class now! We'd love to have you over and sit down for a chat so we can learn what you're looking for, and hopefully, guide you through your journey as an actor!

Scene Study Class co-coached

Our Scene Study class is all about preparing you for the real deal! We keep classes as close to the work environment as we possibly can, and our coaching is tailored to your needs to ensure you keep growing as an actor throughout your career. There's only one way to become an extraordinary storyteller, and that involves practice, lots of it! Think of Straeon as a gym for actors and the coaches as your personal trainers! We'll guide you through your unique journey as an actor. We'll protect what's already working for you, and we'll strengthen what needs work. We're about helping you find your own method. We don't waste your time with stuff you don't need.


Each one of you has something unique to offer, and it's crucial that you share it with the world. We'd be honored if you let us be a part of your journey!

Come to one of our classes for free! Sit with the coaches for a friendly chat, and get a first-hand experience of what Straeon is all about!

We're located at the Wireworks Lofts, 4767 Dagenais St, Suite 201A, Montreal, QC, H4C 1L8, Canada.
