Tutors

meet our team

Our success depends on the strength of our team. All Interact tutors are professionals by trade, making their living in the performance industry and bringing to their teaching practical and proven performance skills and training techniques. As professionals we know that there is no 'one' method of performance training that works for everybody, so we have cut and paste different styles/techniques to tailor-make the classes to suit the needs and skill levels of our students.
