Kestie Morassi is one of Australia’s most prolific actors. Her career has seen her work steadily in the Australian Film and Television industry for over 30 years. Her passion for teaching was ignited when she was invited to speak at the very first drama school, Melbourne Institution – Drama With A Difference, which she had attended some 20 years earlier. This resulted in her immediately being offered a full-time teaching position.  She currently teaches at the renowned Patrick Studios in Prahran, SAE Film School,  Swinburne, The Space, and is also one of the teachers of the 16th Street Youth Program.

She teaches a diverse range of classes focussing on both on-screen and stage and directed performances for Fringe and The Comedy Festival.

Kestie believes that teaching has yielded some of her greatest personal rewards. She believes acting classes and the craft of acting translates immediately and profoundly into one’s everyday life boosting confidence, igniting and sustaining relationships and fuelling one’s imagination, empathy, self-discovery and ultimately self-love.
