View Mara’s Teaching Resume.
As a teacher, I am intense, truthful, and playful. I believe that acting training is a life-long process of discipline, freedom, and discovery. I learn constantly from my own training, from my life experiences, and from my yoga practice. Wherever I teach, I strive to create a transformative playground for actors, a place where actors can be safe to explore, connect, play, breathe and create. Perhaps counter intuitively; one of the best ways to create such a space is to establish clear and definite boundaries in the workspace. The learning process for an actor is deeply intimate and often terrifying. Yet, as intense as this process may be, it is a joyful experience too: all it requires is courage, humility, dedication, and play.
In my teaching process, I help to develop students’ awareness of their inner life and work to increase their capacity to express this life skillfully and creatively so that they can can channel this energy into dramatic action. My teaching is informed by my acting work, imagination and life, which I share with students- in rehearsal, in the studio, and in performance. Ultimately, I believe that acting training requires a union of opposites: discipline and freedom, intensity and playfulness, focus and relaxation.

We will review tape each time in order to implement feedback and immediately observe the shift in the second take. Actors will learn to tackle elements such as camera angles, connection with a partner, eye-line, entrances and exits, all while developing a strong inner concentration-no material in hand and memorization will be required.
