Strengthen your Skills:  One-on-One Acting/Career Coaching with Ricardo Vázquez

"Working with Ricardo Vázquez is a gift. His dedication to you will push you to become the actor you have always envisioned to be. He is an advocator for the actor's personal truth."


“Working with Ricardo is not only a treat for the actor, but a treat for the artistic soul. He creates a safe and collaborative environment with his direction and challenges you with each character you breathe life into. His coaching with each actor is valued and it’s that rare quality in a director/coach that makes you walk away inspired and artistically reawakened.” 


Why Coaching?

Landing the role, getting a callback, being accepted into a program, getting your union cards.  The consistency and quality of your work will open doors and opportunities the more you are aware of your process and strengths.  Your approach to acting needs to celebrate your unique impulses to generate success. Coaching allows you to step back and check in with current habits, choices, successes or barriers in your work to improve, enhance, jumpstart or focus your career. 


Through coaching, we will take a diagnostic assessment of your work, facilitate an outline for your career aspirations, and help you build a personalized process that creates both ownership and consistency in the quality of your work while capitalizes on your strengths.  Through character development, voice, breath, and action we will build a tool box for you to use for any audition, rehearsal, or performance opportunity. Land that role and take charge of your career!
