Acting with ease is mostly about really being relaxed and at peace while fulfilling a role. The best acting comes from having passion and confidence in the choices that you have made while you have prepared. The greatest obstacle? The inner critic, the inner skeptic, the inner dragon that works hard to put on the breaks and make us question ourselves and whether it is safe or not to let go. My job is to help you feel safe enough to be able to trust your creative instincts and your natural impulses. I'm more of a kind, compassionate, understanding and forgiving coach who nurtures the talent that is already in there. We all know you've got it -- who are we kidding?

Hey there fellow actor!

I'd love to help you on this journey called Acting. Whether it's theater, film, or simply the business side of it all, I've been there and I'd be honored to help you.

A little about me: I have been acting since I was three, starting in community theatre. Then, I began pursuing my dream of acting for the screen. I started studying a lot and found myself in weekly classes. Then on a set that would later win me Best Actor and nominate me for Best Female Actor in a festival. I then went to LA (because that's what you're supposed to do, right?) and pursued my dream at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I had an agent while in LA and was going on auditions, but I wasn't liking it. So, after lots of research, I up and moved to Atlanta, GA.

The truth is, what makes me a unique teacher is that I am still growing and learning, but I have been just starting out, or not able to just get that monologue down. We are all on different stepping stones, and I ...

I've been a working actor for ten years. To me acting is one of the most visceral, healing and inspiring arts. It's an honor to invite people into that world and to help them succeed within it! My personalized training is for actors who are interested in or already have a career in TV, film and commercials. We will train in audition technique, self tapes, scene study and the business side of acting (casting, agencies, resume structure, demo reels, what to do on set, what to do in the audition room, website building and more).

Feel free to check out examples of my work on my site: jasonburkey.net or on IMDB.

"Donnabella is a fantastic teacher! I was really having trouble with being confident when acting as well as not sure where or how to start to learn. Donnabella made it super easy, teaching several approaches and techniques that now use when looking at a script. I also feel a lot more confident not just with acting but overall.

She's made it easy to be confident but still challenging myself with every lesson to put farther out of my comfort zone and grow!"

"Glenn is a fantastic instructor. I was a beginner to acting, but I've really wanted to learn more about the craft for a long time. Glenn broke down the fundamentals of reading, character development, and script analysis to help make a more believable performance. Now we're getting into blocking and developing the physical aspects of a character. I'm learning a great deal and Glenn's patience and encouragement make him the ideal instructor to learn and grow.
