I offer acting instruction based on the Sanford Meisner Method. Focus is on reaction & trusting your instincts.
I tell it to you "like it is". You can count on me to always be honest with you.
Testimonial from Del Shores
Award winning writer/director/producer -- "Sordid Lives" (the play, movie and TV series), "Queer as Folk", Dharma & Greg, Southern Baptist Sissies, critically acclaimed "Yellow", and recently "Blues for Willadean", a new feature film starring Academy Award-winning Octavia Spencer, Dale Dickey, Beth Grant, and five R.E.A.C.T. actors.
"I have been teaching weekend workshops in Dallas for a few years now. I can't begin to count the amazing students that have studied with me that have come out of The Michele Condrey Studio/R.E.A.C.T. Their talent is immense and their acting skills and training is reflected in their exciting work. It is simply stellar. Actors talk and what they tell me is how brilliant the amazing Michele Condrey is as their primary acting coach. I have also had the pleasure of sitting in and watching Michele in action. She is nurturing, intuitive and tough all at once. Michele has my love and adoration, but above all, she has my respect! I highly recommend Michele Condrey and the Michele Condrey Studio to anybody who has the opportunity to study there.
