Overview

Courtney P. is a Talent, Acting, and Performance Coach in the Orlando area. As a 25 year industry veteran, she specializes in T.V. & Film, Commercial and Stage Technique. She graduated from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. Having worked as an Actress, Singer, Talent Agent, Director and Coach, Courtney has worked with some of the industries' top casting directors!

Whether you are a beginner, developing new skills, or a professional, perfecting your craft, one-on-one coaching provides the attention and personalization needed to succeed in one of the most competitive industries.

Many of the techniques Courtney uses are also successful in helping non- actors achieve career and personal goals.

Recent Talent Projects Include:

"The Voice", Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Delta Dental, Mercedes Benz, Publix, Bright House, Parenting Magazine, "Rent", Capitol One, Holiday Inn, Feature Films and more!

My philosophy is that Talent Coaching should be uniquely catered to each student. Coaching should be personalized to individual learning styles, utilizing a unique approach for each individual actor.

Acting is a competitive industry; it takes hard work and dedication. Having the correct training can help set you apart from the competition and better prepare you for the Industry!
