TESTIMONIALS FROM PREVIOUS ACTING STUDENTS:
“Over the course of Cynthia Levin’s mentorship, I have become a different actor and a different human being. I am so much freer, so much more committed, and such a better listener in my work and in my life. She has an intuitive ability that allows her to see right through your blocks and your BS. She’s the best acting teacher I’ve ever had, and I cannot recommend her enough.”
~ Taylor Murphy-Sinclair
“She’s honestly impacted my life overwhelmingly. Spending 2 years in her class, we did such concentrated incredible work that was really transformative and I am grateful to her for being who she is and honestly changing my life and making it so much better!” ~ Geri Courtney-Austein
“Cynthia is one of those special teachers that make a mark in your life. Under the principle that your life and your work are not two separate entities, she invites you to flourish giving you tools that transform you in a positive way. She points you in the direction towards freedom and if you trust and do your part, I can tell you, it will change you and in consequence your work. I have seen it not only in myself but in how she has impacted other fellow actors as well. Thank you Cynthia!” ~ Itziar Martinez
“I studied acting for 15 years before I found Cynthia. I studied with Uta Hagen and several top-rated acting teachers in L.A. I developed an excellent technique on paper but my acting was very analytical/left brain dominant. I was in my head. Cynthia has been a Godsend. She has taught me how to access my emotions and get out of my head. Her focus on vulnerability, attuning to my inner child (and taking care of that little guy), and how to fight with love have been game changers. My confidence has soared. Not surprisingly, so have my bookings! My anxiety and self-doubt have also plummeted thanks to Cynthia. If you're looking for a teacher who is incredibly loving, generous, empathetic, and perceptive but who will also challenge and push you beyond your comfort zone (e.g., like when she yelled at me to go further into my rage and I screamed at her - at the top of my lungs, "I don't want to just yell the entire scene" and without missing a beat, she screamed back even louder, "JUST DO IT!" I did and had a major breakthrough as a result), Cynthia is the one for you. I can't recommend her high enough. She's not only changed my acting, she's changed my life.” ~ Jeff L. Williams
“Cynthia is a deeply gifted teacher whose humor and heart create the space for phenomenal breakthroughs in her students. She’s a fierce advocate and calls forth the most authentic expression in scene work that has made me a better actor as well as a more wholehearted human being. Cynthia's classes are deceptively deep work. With her humor and heart she creates a playful setting that'll hit you over the head like 5 years of therapy in an hour. Cynthia is a deeply gifted teacher who has changed my life. She has cracked me open in my artistic expression as an actor but even more so as a human being.” ~ Hana Mayeda
“Cynthia’s approach teaches you the art of just being and getting comfortable with the uncomfortable. With her I was not only able to unlock my emotional core, but I was also able to be confident as an actor. To take a script and make strong choices. To be in the moment during a scene and not be in my head and instead be thinking, feeling, & willing as myself(the character). Her approach goes way beyond the world of acting and the skills she taught me I use in my day to day life. I highly recommended her class for all levels of actors. With her you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll become a better actor but most importantly you will grow and make new discoveries about yourself.” ~ Ivann Acuna
“Cynthia helped get me in touch with who I really am. She provided a fun and safe, yet vulnerable and challenging environment for me to push new boundaries. She is an absolute blast to work with...and she's hilarious!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to discover how to play again!” ~ Benjamin Toth

TESTIMONIALS FROM PREVIOUS STAND-UP STUDENTS
“Cynthia came to Dublin in August and honestly it was one of the best, if not THE best stand up class I have ever been part of. It was great and none of us wanted the class to end. I can’t wait to hone my skills again further under her fun and vibrant guidance. Roll on November 29th.”
- Margo Carr, Dublin, Ireland
“Hope you're enjoying your time in Dublin. Thanks again for the workshop. It was so brilliant!”
- Eve Darcy, Dublin, Ireland
"I never went to a stand up class. I didn't know why anyone would but I went to Cynthia's class because...well, it was Cynthia. I had stopped standup for ten years to raise my daughters full time and when I came back to comedy, (after having done the Tonite Show with Johnny Carson and other TV shows), I was lost and I found myself again in Cynthia's class. Yeah, baby. Thank you!"
- Karen Haber, Los Angeles
“I went to Cynthia Levin for a quick "tune-up" and I ended up working with her for several sessions. She gets results. After her coaching, I was booked for 8 consecutive shows at Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago. I appeared there 15 times in 2012, thanks to my work with Cynthia. She provides practical suggestions, not only on how to be successful at stand-up but how to work in the business. Cynthia was a legend in Chicago, both as a performer and teacher. For me, her coaching and suggestions were the perfect balance of creative and practical.”
- Julie Paradise, Chicago, IL
“She can tighten stand-up like nobody's business! A legend in LA, too!”
- Kim Diaz, Los Angeles, CA
"Cynthia is an incredible teacher and lover." - Matt McConkey, Los Angeles, CA
"Cynthia Levin is, bar none, the absolute best comedy coach in Los Angeles. I would recommend her to anybody at any level. And on top of all that, her class is a hoot!”
- Karen Knotts, Los Angeles, CA
"Cynthia Levin never teaches what she finds funny but instead teaches her students to find their own unique voice. I repeatedly take her classes because I am always guaranteed at least 2 full sets of great material."
- Philip Boyle, Los Angeles, CA
"I took Cynthia's stand up class and had the best time. She is a great teacher - positive, funny, insightful and challenging. I would highly recommend taking this class if you are a beginner or have been doing comedy a long time. Either way, she will help guide and inspire you to your own next level."
- Kate Roxburgh, London, England
