The Catalyst For Me

Victor Cruz’ acting classes are truly a gift to any actor or anyone who has a desire to act- or simply wants to overcome shyness. He has this innate and suave ability to bring you to your “core- self”; the authentic you. And, that is what acting is all about- being authentic at the moment. Through his distinctive style, Victor has been the catalyst for me to witness just how cathartic acting and practicing law truly is. I love it!

How to be the Best “You”

“Victor is more than an acting coach, he is almost a life coach. He guides you thru a process to explore acting that overflows into other areas of your life. You walk away a better actor but if you pay attention and apply some of the thought processes… you also become a better person. He requires the best of your intention to get started. He requires your best work ethic to stay focused. He takes that and shows you how to be the best “you” on stage or camera. He is like the Puerto Rican Mr. Miyagi but for actors. He really knows how to cultivate community when doing project work.”

You Empower Us

“I have really enjoyed your class and the good people that I’ve met through it. You have a teaching style that has been freeing for me. It’s helped me to get a little closer to my own voice and I suppose that one cannot act if one does not understand the depth of their own emotions; so I have to thank you for the opportunity to do so, the opportunity to get closer to myself. I think you try to empower us to find our voice and to believe in the reality of who we are, the one that we dismiss and therefore cannot see. This is important in the actors journey and in the journey of life. Thank you for recognizing this and sharing this gift with us.”

Not Just Any Acting Course

“Victor’s class allows you to be yourself to your fullest potential. Not only does Victor teach you the many aspects that come along with acting such as writing, memorization and improv, he teaches you self-reflection, self-healing and self-discovery. This is not just any acting course but a community of various artists coming together to share their truths and experiences. In his course, I was able to examine myself from my roots (inner-being, my voice) to my fruits (what I produce, my exterior).”

I Have Grown As A Person

“Victor Cruz’s Acting Class will take you on a journey of self-discovery that also comforts your vulnerabilities. The class has been of the most important, affirming and powerful gifts I have offered myself. Victor’s candor, talent and demeanor creates a supportive and liberated space where we can show up as we are, where we are. I have fallen in love with the energy in my classes EVERY SINGLE TIME. I have been able to experience myself and my classmates as writers, performers and most importantly, as fellow humans who are also hurting, loving, and living just the same. I feel more confident at work and in my personal relationships. And, I have grown (as a person and an artist) a little more after every class.”
