Working with Christiane Hirt is among the wisest moves I have made as an actor. Acting classes and personal coaching can be rough terrain. Insecurities are brought to the surface, moulds are broken and egos are shattered. Change is a scary thing, in general, for actors. Why put myself through the stress when I’ve already got it all figured out? I thank you, Christiane, for the gentle, enlightening message: you don’t.

Christiane is a powerhouse who truly cares for her students and is so deeply passionate about the craft! I am really grateful and fortunate to learn from her. She taught me to let go of my blueprint and drop into the moment. I was at a stage in my career where I learned lots of tools and did lots of study, but when I tape for auditions I can't let go of the homework. Through repetition and improv, Christiane cultivated a very safe, empowering environment encouraging me to trust my instinct, drop into my body allowing the character to take over and drive the scene. I've had lots of breakthrough moments training with her.
Katherine Young
Over the last thirty years, as one of Canada’s foremost acting coaches, Christiane Hirt has finely tuned her intuition and ability to read and understand human behaviour, emotion, and depth of meaning to a degree that is altogether rare among artists, healers and helpers alike. She brings a great gift.

I thank the day I decided to take my friend’s advice and take a class at Rogues West. To say Christiane and Rogues West has completely changed my career would be an understatement. Releasing the chains we often find we’ve placed on ourselves within acting is just the beginning. She teaches you how to breath in a scene. How to live moment to moment. Be imperfect. It becomes less about acting and more about letting go, allowing yourself to be limitless. Free. I have gained incredibly sought after agents half way across the world, simply by sending tapes made within Christiane’s class. Began to see immediate progress with bookings and quality of bookings. She equips you with the knowledge of story telling and a character’s journey all while pushing you to dig deeper, find the truth. Everything I’ve accomplished since joining Rogues is in direct correlation to the classes at this acting studio. I am the actor I am today because of this incredible woman’s dedication and my trust in her to guide me there. And this is only the beginning. My secret weapons, Rogues West and Christiane Hirt.

Studying with Christiane Hirt changed my life. She has a great love and compassion for her actors. Her guidance and wisdom is truly inspiring. In Christiane’s classes you must be prepared to give your very best work and your complete commitment because that is exactly what Christiane gives to her Meisner classes every week. When studying the Meisner Technique you must be prepared to explore, to let go, to make mistakes and most importantly to do the work.

Christiane is hands down phenomenal. I’ve been studying with her on and off for many years both in Calgary and Vancouver. The energy she brings to the class is uncanny and she really fosters an environment where you can thrive as an artist and create your best work. She always holds you to your highest standard and she always upholds herself to her highest standard as a teacher. Furthermore, her love for the craft is very inspiring. Highly recommend this studio if you want transcendental experiences in your acting
