Barbara Kite is an amazing acting coach who truly wants her students out of the classroom and onto the set. She is tough, but she also wants you to have fun. Yes, it’s hard work, yes you have to persist, and yes, you have to love it. Barbara is on a mission to explore and encourage the journey of an actor’s development. Her class is a place to overcome the fears every actor faces, and replace them with the invaluable tools needed to conquer the acting world.
An experience you don’t want to miss! Barbara’s acting class is an extraordinary experience open to any person and any profession. In her class, you will find she has a gift of tapping into one’s self- awareness, while assisting with the individuals discovery of where they are “holding back” with any honest emotion. The techniques used and skills learned are exceptional for releasing a person’s innate, unique talent!
This is a great class! I have studied with Barbara Kite for several years. The best thing about this coach and class is that Barbara doesn’t let her ego get in the way. She wants what is best for her students. If that means a different approach, she does it. If it means a different teacher, then she brings in a different teacher or recommends another teacher. The class is constantly evolving and changing as Barbara learns from her studies and from her students. This is an inspiring and supportive environment to learn and grow as an artist.
A Remarkable Teacher! I have studied acting with Barbara Kite for nearly four years. She is a wonderful teacher and a remarkable person. In class, she is both generous and demanding. She has an uncanny ability to find precisely the right thing to say to students that will help them understand exactly what they need to do.
She also has an amazing way of recognizing how a student is holding him/herself back. Students working with her acquire an ever-expanding foundation of skill and self-confidence. I have experienced this myself, and seen it happen in others. The results are obvious and striking.
If you are ready to take your work to the next level, whatever that level is, I enthusiastically recommend Barbara to you.
You will not regret it i have been studying with barbara for nearly a year now and have no regrets, not only have i learned numerous things about myself but also my confidence and acting has been magnified ten fold. A great choice.

"Barbara's workshop helped me focus my presentation and pace myself very effectively. Her attitude about public speaking as a natural extension of our own personality and genuineness is refreshing and enjoyable! With her encouragement, I was able to address a large professional group, and hold the audience's attention for a full-day training, feeling confident and relaxed. I heartily recommend work with Barbara for anyone who would like better skills and more fun out of speaking to groups."

"Barbara delivered an amazing, inspirational address at a party that I hosted for 72 women where she shared with us her journey in living an authentic life. She kept it so real and said thoughts we all have but do not necessarily have the guts to say. It still stands out in my mind how many women stood up and shared themselves at this event. She so richly deserved the standing ovation that she received."
