Alec Ruiz

As a South Florida native, Alec studied at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, participated and earned several awards in the State Thespian Festival, and received his BA in Theatre at The Florida State University. Since then, he’s worked in regional theaters, workshopped new musicals, sailed across Northern and Eastern Europe as a lead vocalist, and has been on multiple commercial, TV, and film sets.

Aside from his passion for acting, Alec finds immense joy in teaching other young artists and watching them flourish in their work.

While living as a professional actor in New York for the past few years, Alec has gathered all the tools he’s acquired from his training and experiences on stage and set to impart on those who want to learn the tips and tricks of honing their skills. He’s willing to dive into this wonderous craft and work one-on-one with artists no matter what level they’re at.

Whether they’re brand new to acting or working professionally, he’s eager to help in any capacity with any kind of acting work. Alec is incredibly excited to offer one-on-one coaching in Dreyfoos audition preparation, critiquing State Thespian Festival pieces, college audition preparation, acting-through-song, and TV/Film/Commercial sides. His goal is to create an environment for artists to be challenged in a safe space while also having fun doing what we love.
