Justine is a dedicated Theatre Arts teacher and Acting coach.  She holds a BFA in Drama from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, with a minor in Psychology.  Justine provides students with a safe and supportive environment in which they can develop new skills as storytellers, actors, and human beings. She believes in the power of self-awareness and empathy to connect students to both the characters they play and to each other.  

 

Students will work extensively on creating subtext--all of the thoughts, wants, and desires of the character beyond the text. In addition, students will work on creating specific relationships, actions, and stories that are grounded in truth. Justine believes that growth as an artist and as a human are synonymous. She encourages her students to become more mindful beings both in and outside of the classroom.

 

Justine is currently on staff at the Cappiello studio in NYC. She is also available for private coaching. Please forward inquiries to  JustineMagnusson1@gmail.com
