About Us

You will become a skilled actor with performing arts classes from our acting studio. Founder Michelle Marceau opened The Greenwich Performing Arts Studio to provide budding actors with the proper training to succeed. At our facility, we concentrate on the theater arts disciplines. Our philosophy is to develop each individual by providing access to industry professionals and creating a personalized program. Our program offering is extensive, with various levels and disciplines and our performing opportunites have included Disney World, The United Nations, Radio City Music Hall, Off  Broadway, Television and Film.

Michelle Marceau, Founder

Director and Founder of the Greenwich Performing Arts Studio, Michelle made her television debut at age nine in a Tropicana Orange Juice commercial and continued doing commercials through High School. While continuing her professional career, she received a BFA from Boston Conservatory in Drama and Dance. As a dancer, she performed throughout Europe and the USA. On her return to the USA, she had the distinct honor of becoming Joanne Woodward's private ballet teacher for three years after which, she began her career as a choreographer with the National Shakespeare Company in NYC. She continued to perform and choreograph in commercials and Off-Broadway and toured with the American Dance Machine and acting in Soap Operas. The latter led to Michelle's selection as the first permanent choreographer of Daytime Dramas and allowed her to work with such outstanding performers as BeBe Neuwirth and Susan Stroman She helped create SRO Productions, a production company dedicated to bringing new works to Off-Broadway. Michelle has been teaching all levels of Theatre Arts for the last 20 years in Greenwich.

Benefits of Acting

While some acting studios teach students how to market themselves as a product or a commodity, we concentrate on building confidence. We help improve our students' public speaking skills, enhance their acting abilities, and help them feel comfortable in social settings. They also learn to refine their brainstorming abilities, listening and observation skills, and creative thinking. Greenwich Performing Arts is teaching Life Skills.
