Anika Pensiero

Brooklyn, New York

As a teacher, I work to help students develop their capacity for expressive connection. I offer my range of training and experience as a tool kit to support each student in whatever way they need. Master Teacher Catherine Fitzmaurice says, "Teach what is in front of you". When you enter my studio, you are the source of your own inspiration. I simply help you to strengthen and sharpen it.

I currently teach acting, Shakespeare and speech at New York Film Academy. As a visiting artist, I offer classes and coaching in acting, voice and speech, Fitzmaurice Voicework®, and audition preparation. I also teach Loui Movement Technique based on the work of my company -Counter-Balance Theater. While the range of classes I teach is wide, the unifying principals remain constant: physical awareness, intellectual focus and endlessly changing possibilities.
