“Stop acting! Be your unique self…

Everything you need is within you.”

In 1980, Sande Shurin changed the Direction of teaching acting with her new “Self and Character” based technique called Transformational Acting. Focusing on the uniqueness of each actor and developing their ability to be “Prescenced”, to use their current emotions, and to transform who they are into the written character. She coaches the actor to take bold actions, take risks, and continually move past their limitations. She does this in her NYC and Woodstock NY Acting Studios. Sande also private coaches in person and on Skype. Shurin’s coaching has appeared on Oprah, as acting coach on America’s Next Top Model, as well as many other Reality shows. She has directed on and off Broadway, and also the TV series: “Working Actors”, and for film: “True Love” and “Museum Scandels ” Sande is the auther of 2 books: “Transformational Acting – A Step Beyond” and “Star Power – Defining Your Individual Signature”.


“Sande’s technique has not only helped me as an actor but now as a Casting Director I constantly see her technique inspiring and shinning through her students at auditions.”
-Bob Lambert, casting for ALL MY CHILDREN


“I think it’s safe to say that my acting has exploded and expanded beyond anything I could have imagined!”
-Anthony Rapp, Star of Broadway & Film (RENT, SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION, A BEAUTIFUL MIND)


“Sande is an incredible teacher. Her Techniques are so good I use them in my life as well as work.”
-Casey Nicholaw, Tony nominated Director (THE DROWSY CHAPERONE), Tony winner Director (THE BOOK OF MORMON), ALADDIN, SOMETHING ROTTEN
