I am consistently amazed by the insight this man possesses. Fred has an uncanny understanding of the human psyche, what makes people tick, where they come from and what their motivations are. He has given me confidence and the ability to find my own way. My customary exit line when I leave a session is “Fred what would I do without you?”
Although I had flirted with acting off-and-on some 20 years ago, returning to the tutelage of Fred Ponzlov this time around has literally been the difference between night and day. He is more than a teacher. He introduces students to a unique and exciting way to re-experience oneself and observe people and the world around us.
My experience in Mr. Ponzlov’s acting classes has taken my passion for acting and expanded it beyond whatever I dreamed possible. I can’t thank him enough.
Fred is a fabulous acting teacher. He makes classes — beginning or advanced — stimulating, educational and fun. He critiques in astute and non-threatening ways that allows you not only to grow, but to have a good time as you do so.
If you’re nervous about joining a beginning acting class, no matter what age, try Fred Ponzlov’s. Any initial nervousness or doubt will quickly dissolve. Fred’s sense of humor and extensive knowledge combined with the group support and cohesion leads to taking chances one might not normally attempt.
I’ve found Fred’s advanced class to be all I could hope for. His knowledge and application of the Meisner approach has been incredibly helpful, especially in understanding and applying subtleties in character, setting and style.
Fred Ponzlov provides a creative supportive environment where beginning and experience actors alike, will learn necessary skills to improve their craft. Wherever your goals are in the spectrum, Fred has the patience, skills, and knowledge to provide you the ‘light’ and ‘tools’ to take you there.
Joining Fred’s acting family in February 2007 (after several decades from any active participation in theatre) has allowed me the luxury of re-discovering the joys of expressing and growing emotionally and learning to follow, new paths of discovery.
