Richard Keats

Acting Instructor


Richard had the great fortune of studying under Robert Cohen, Acting Power, at the University of California, Irvine, where ha also had the opportunity to learn from several other noted Hollywood Instructors.


His teaching approach incorporates his mentors and his own ‘out of the box’ strategies.


He’s appeared on many TV shows, (including playing Dr. Lockhart) on Arrow, Hallmark Movies, and over 75 US National commercials.


I love teaching… I’m constantly learning new ways to communicate, to turn the proverbial light bulb on in each of my students.


I believe in breaking the process down into fundamentals and then getting it up to game time speed.


Really I look at acting as a sport and try to eliminate the mystery…
