Quin Gordon

Students are drawn to alumnus Quin Gordon's class for the practical tools they are given that will make them self-sufficient when they graduate and head out into a challenging profession. It is his goal that students no longer need him at the end of four years.

My teaching style is passionate, rigorous and honest. I believe in an acting class that challenges, but is not invasive of, the student actor. What my class is focused on is not the internal experience of the actor but rather the experience of our audience. What is the audience seeing and hearing from the actor that communicates a story. Everything that we do on stage and screen is in service of the people that paid money to see a story.
