Here’s what others are saying:

Roger Manix is an exceptional teacher and practitioner. Challenging, nurturing, mercurial and incisive, he embodies Meisner’s technique while creating a safe space for thrilling, difficult work. I have learned so much from him; I defy you to be in a room with Roger and not grow.

I have studied with Roger for 3 years, and to this day, he is still one of my greatest mentors. I’ve learned so much from him about how to approach the craft of acting, and I hope every actor has the privilege to study with him.

Roger Manix is unlike any teacher I’ve studied with before. He invests in each individual and helps actors explore within themselves, so they can take their work deeper. When he teaches, he lives the journey with you. The work is meaningful, your instincts are heightened, and you feel one step closer to being the actor you want to be.

Roger is a powerful teacher who is technical to the actors benefit. He taught me how to craft moments that are reliable, nuanced and genuine. He can pull out the best, darkest, brightest, scariest, but most importantly the truest parts of ourselves like no other teacher can.

Roger taught me to bring myself to my work which helped me in the audition process, and now I attend SUNY Purchase’s BFA Acting Program. I am truly grateful for his guidance and individual time he dedicated to me.

His classroom has been the site of some of the best and most entertaining work I have seen in years. There is no room big enough for the beauty that emits from Roger’s teaching.
