Premier Acting Technique Teachers
Patrick Quagliano is among the premier acting technique teachers in the world today. He has spent many years studying Stella’s work, both as an actor and teacher. As an actor, he began his training at The Stella Adler Studio in the late 1980′s. After a short acting career, performing in extensive theatrical productions both in New York and London, Patrick returned to the Stella Adler Studio in 1996 to begin teaching. It was during this time that he met and apprenticed under Master Teacher Ron Burrus, the greatest living exponent of the Adler Technique, with whom Patrick taught alongside for several years. Patrick also has a long standing relationship with The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, which developed while furthering his acting training there. He is currently the Academy’s US representative and a founding member of The London Theatre Exchange. Film coaching credits include ”Officer Down” with Steven Dorff and James Woods (Jeff Most Productions) where he was dialogue and acting coach for Ukrainian musical performer and actress Kamaliya Zahoor, and “Leading Ladies” directed by Daniel Beahm, where Patrick coached choreographer Melanie LaPatin (“So You Think You Can Dance”) in her film debut.
