What People Say

Antoine McKay meets the artists where they are.  I’ve taken classes and workshops with Antoine.  It feels like individual coaching even though you’re in a class working with other artists.  His passion for acting is palpable. When he marries his teaching to Uta Hagen’s texts and his own personal experience training with her, it’s a truly unique acting class.  Training with Antoine has definitely boosted my game - knowing that when I prep well, I can make bold choices and trust myself to let the words and actions flow through me honestly and organically.
