Online clown coaching sessions, absolutely personalized and adapted to any level.
What to expect
Honest feedback, guidance in the areas you need to work on, an eagle eye for details and of course, fun.
The sessions will be very much like a clown class but 100% focused on YOU and your needs. She will ask you to improvise, give you ideas and feedback, and work with the material you have prepared between sessions.
*The session can be recorded for your exclusive and personal use only. This is a great way to re-inforce the learning process, see for yourself what works and remember the points covered.
Caroline recommends you commit to 4 sessions over a 4 week period. Each session will be 1h. You’ll agree on a day and time that suits. Obviously, if you have an emergency or know at least 48hs in advance that you won’t be able to make the session, it can be re-scheduled.
Your homework (if you want it) will be to prepare a sketch around an idea she gives you or your own ideas (you decide). You will have to send her the video of your improvisation 24hs before the next programmed session.
- a laptop with a camera or, failing that, a tablet with a camera (if you have an external webcam that sends a higher quality image than the computer’s camera, all the better).
- internet connection
- a free account on Zoom.us
- a private space to work in.
Ideally, a clear working area of approximately 2 x 2 meters that is within the viewing angle of the camera. Outside that area, you should have some space at least on one side so that you can make exits and entrances into the area (that is, you can “leave camera” at least on one side) . Don’t worry about curtains, sofas, shelves with things on them, etc in the background … these can often be used advantageously during the class ;o)
- adequate lighting (frontal) so that I can see you well (please avoid bright lights behind you, such as windows, etc)
What did they say?
Caroline was full of ideas, supportive, encouraging, and provided resources and homework to keep me going in between sessions. I went from a vague idea to having a structure of a show with a world of possibilities!
Tina Craven, Practicum Coordinator, University of North Carolina, USA
Caroline is so much fun to work with… her sense of play is unparalleled, and she offers feedback in an honest and joyful way. I grew so much during our time together, she is truly a master teacher.

Caroline’s clown coaching has opened up infinite possibilities to continue developing my clowning skills. Not only a fun experience, but a space for enriching self-discovery and increasing clowning abilities and skills.
Emily Kingsley hospital clown with Dr. Yaso International (Dom. Republic)
I lost all self-consciousness and just bared my soul and funny bone with her. She revealed gifts in me that I didn’t know I had. If you want a coach who offers clown inspiration, humor, fun, personalized positive critiques, challenges, modeling, classical instruction and brainstorming, then Caroline Dream is just for you.
Betsy Walkup Retired teacher, actor, hospital clown, USA
With a critical and professional eye, Caroline guides you down the clown path learning as you go. In each session you enjoy and challenge yourself at the same time.
Andrés Valerga, teacher, actor (Argentina)
Caroline helped me put my doubts aside, to just go for it! And in just four sessions (with their corresponding homework of course), I now have my own clown number, to present in public!
Miquel Martinez, clown & electrician
Caroline’s gift of guiding me, through encouragement and positive input, has helped me identify the essence of my clown; an enormous aid in developing my work.
