MEET THE TEAM
Jordan is an Award-Winning Actor, Musician, and Coach.
As an actor, Jordan is best known for The Walking Dead, Homeland, Nashville, and as a member of the prestigious Blue Man Group. With a BFA with Honors from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Jordan's physically-based theatrical training has to led to chameleon-like Film and TV roles opposite Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Clare Danes, Donald Sutherland, Andrew Lincoln, Connie Britton, Octavia Spencer, Michelle Dockery, Colin O'Donoghue, and more. (All of which were cast from the Book From Tape studios.)
As an Acting Coach, Jordan translates his theatrical training for Film and TV actors, empowering them to get into their bodies and out of their heads. He trains his actors (ages 6-76) to harness impulse as a tool, to trust their guts, to work on their feet, to break rules, and, overall, to make bold choices that make a lasting impression through tape. Actors who work with Jordan are taught techniques by Jerzy Grotowski, Laban, Viewpoints, Harold Guskin, and others from his personal Actor's Tool Box. (Wondering why you don't see Meisner on this list? He'll explain in a session.)

Hailing from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, Nayshka Miranda, is a working actress, dancer, creative artist, and small business owner.
Dancing since she’s been in her diapers, she grew up a competitive dancer to eventually performing professionally for local artists, festivals, and award shows. It was at the Osceola County School for the Arts where she found her love for theater, being cast in more than fifteen productions within her three years there.
Upon graduating, she signed with a local agency Brevard Talent Group and was immediately immersed into the entertainment industry. A diamond in the rough, she was soon connected to her LA team at Encompass Agency and Brave Artists Management. Nayshka is also a current student at the Scott Sedita Acting Studios.
She can be seen in numerous projects such as the feature film “Murder RX”, and the award-winning short film “Bird’s Eye”. A mentee of Jordan Woods-Robinson for almost six years, she has grown alongside Book From Tape, from when it was a small taping room in a fellow actor’s house to the successful acting studio it is today.
Nayshka is bilingual (Ella Habla Español!) and is happy to answer any questions and glad to help you book your next session at the studio!
