I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!

She’s awesome! I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time already

My daughter enjoys her lessons with miss Jordan- they are a great extension of what she is learning in class and a way to improve in areas she struggles. Thanks Jordan!

As an actress of 19 years, I love teaching my students the art of telling a story. I started my training in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts program, following on to Interlochen Arts Academy and eventually private training in Los Angeles. I have credits in regional theater, television (Netflix's Dear White People, The CW's Worst Birthday Ever, TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything), countless national commercials, and more. Together, we will explore several different methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, imagining, and more, to create your own unique method. I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, we'll assess your goals, learn how to break down a script, and choose an acting method to start with. As we go on, we will build a repetoire of monologues and scenes for you to use, develop career trajectory targets, and develop your own personal approach to the art of storytelling. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

Ellysa is extremely knowledgeable and practical - her lesson with me was amazing. As a first lesson, we went through my existing equipment and goals for writing/producing my own work, and she gave me an online review of what we discussed next steps were for me. I’m so thankful for her clear and focused guidance!

Not everyone wants to learn how to sing, speaking and voice projection are valuable tools for actors, television personalities, lecturers, and professors. Speaking is a lot like singing and I use some of the same exercises to help teach proper support to avoid vocal damage and tiring the voice.

Hello, my name is Bernadette and I am recently graduated from a very rigorous 3 year Master of Fine Arts in Acting program. I specialize in Film Acting, however, I have worked as a Producer, Casting Director, Director and Camera Operator so I am familiar with what goes on behind the camera as well.

I have extensive knowledge in resume formatting, head shot formatting, demo reel formatting, how to properly audition for both film and theatre, how to properly self-tape from home, tricks for memorization, monologue preparation, character analyzation, etc.

I personally enjoy deriving my technique with a mixture of improvisation and Uta Hagen's theories on acting. I was also trained in Meisner and if a student requests it we can certainly work on some of his exercises as well.

Everything I have learned has been through my masters program, reading and researching for years, self-educating, attending numerous industry events, conferences, and I am a working actress so whenever I'm ...

"Dalia is a complete joy to work with. I come to her anytime I'm preparing for an audition. She make it so fun and makes you feel so comfortable that any nerves you may be experiencing just evaporate. She is able to see the bigger picture when working on a monologue/scene so the result is really detailed work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to up their audition or acting game, because she really knows her stuff!"
