“I cannot express enough the difference his class has made in my abilities as an actor and the impact it has had on my life. Thank you Steve, from the bottom of my heart.”
– Anna Silk, Lost Girl

“Coaching with Steve before an audition gives me the practical tools and the confidence to book work.”
– Daniella Alonso, Revolution


“Using Steve’s techniques, and coming from a place of truth, I quickly started to feel more connected to the reader and to what I was saying. Now I LOVE auditioning. I owe it to Acting The Truth!”
– Jana Williams, The Young and the Restless


“Steve has such a keen sense of the human experience and is able to convey his observations and relate them to the process of acting in such a sensitive yet point blank way. I have benefited greatly from his coaching.”
Dave Baez, Dexter

“Steve makes your work more specific, unique and true to you. He allows you to be vulnerable in a safe and encouraging environment. As an actor or artist this kind of continuous development is priceless.”
– Chantel Giacalone

“Steve’s class reintroduces people to themselves. Work like this should be required for any artist.”
– Zander Eckhouse, Huge




“Risa is a woman saturated with knowledge, history, experience, language, depth… and balls. Mostly her own. I would encourage anyone to take the opportunity to work with this extraordinary woman. My life is richer for the time I’ve spent with her.”
– Pamela Adlon, Californication

“Risa stresses the two most important and most often overlooked components of acting, CONNECTION and INTENTION. Within a few days after taking her master class I walked into an audition for ONE TREE HILL and thought to myself, “just connect with the reader,” needless to say… I booked the job and I’ve been on the show ever since. Whether you are just starting out or have been around for a while… this training is invaluable.”
Joe Manganiello, True Blood

Austin Highsmith


“Risa is a true artist who understands actors, how to communicate with actors, and how to direct actors to do their best work. She simplifies all of “the noise” and makes the work accessible and clear. I run to her class when I need a creative reboot. And be it through the wisdom she imparts or the passion she infuses, she never fails to give the tonic that I need to recharge! Risa teaches actors how to reclaim their power in the room, and how to have the freedom and permission to own every moment in the audition room. Take her class, you won’t be sorry you did!”
– Austin Highsmith, Dolphin’s Tale
