Talent Coach to the Stars Announces New Acting Teacher Hire

In response to the growing number of students, esteemed master talent coach Carolyne Barry has hired Heidi Dippold to lead new Meisner class.


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2014 -- The biggest Hollywood talents don’t “perform” – they use their imaginations to feel the emotions that are inherent within a particular scene. This is known as the Meisner technique, which expands an actor’s imagination to explore new senses of truth and utilize these emotions within scenes. It’s an essential skill for any actor or actress to have – and now Carolyne Barry is expanding her Meisner classes with new acting coach Heidi Dippold.

Starting in April 2014, Dippold – an award-winning actor and teacher – will be leading an intensive Meisner class dedicated to cultivating a student’s skill and emotional freedom utilizing personally selected scenes and/or monologues. This exploration is critical for growing as an actor, which is why Dippold’s class is already experiencing significant demand.

“I’m thrilled to add Heidi Dippold to the growing roster of talent coaches at my acting school,” says founder Carolyne Barry. “Heidi brings the exact kind of experience, creativity and tenacity necessary for teaching the Meisner technique.”

Heidi Dippold is an award-winning actor and teacher who has starred in major stage productions in theatres across the country, including: The Long Wharf Theatre, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, South Coast Repertory, The New Orleans Shakespeare Festival, Signature Theatre Company, and LA Theatre Works. Heidi has also appeared in the film HOUSE, and on television in THE SOPRANOS, NCIS, NYPD BLUE, LAW & ORDER, ALL MY CHILDREN, ANGEL and ALIAS, just to name a few.
