I specialize in Singing stage performance.
Being able to sing well is not enough to perform well.
Student needs to bring to stage at least 85% of what he is able to do in the classroom. Better - 150%.
In my class students meet in small groups, perorm in front of each other, and then we exchange notes. We do 2-3 rounds of performing and discussing to make sure it all works.
In my classroom student learns how get rid of stage fright, how to make stressful situation to work for his advantage, not to stand in a way of best performance.
I also use Stanislavsky acting method for singing performance.

Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

Dance is dedicated to the youth and adults in the community where all dancers can have fun, express creativity, build self-confidence while at the same time learn the fundamentals of different styles of dance. Dancers will have the opportunity to develop technique and personal development that will lead them to grow as a performing artist. I truly believe that everyone should recognize their passion and follow their hearts and dreams.

I strive to continue the tradition of integrity, excellence, and passion of the arts where all dancers are thriving in the artistic community!

About Noreen

I started dancing at the age of 7 training in jazz, hip hop, lyrical, ballet and tap dancing. I participated in several dance competitions such as Shows Stopper and Star Power where I continue to strive and developed the passion for dance. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Psy

Ms. Noreen has got to be one of the best dance teachers around! As a result of taking her classes, I have become more knowledgeable in the field of dance, as well as a more confident person. She is a patient, kind, and understanding person, determined to help her students reach their full potential as dancers. I highly recommend taking her classes (which range from ballet, hip hop, jazz, and tap) if you're a beginner dancer, or even an experienced one wanting to hone your skills. You'll definitely progress as a dancer and perhaps make some new friends through class! :))
Julianne
I've taken private lessons with Ms. Noreen for a while. The lessons helped improve my flexibility, core strength also my ability to dance and boost my confidence of dancing in front of an audience. I highly recommend these lessons

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Improv is all about NOT SAYING NO and being fearless! A true actor should thrive on improv. It takes great skill to be raw and inventive on the spot. Improv is best taught in groups but one on one is excellent as well, especially for the beginner.

Great experience, Keith made me feel at ease from the very first lesson. He’s very knowledgeable and patient. I look forward to every class I have with him.
Armando
Awesome overall. Very enthusiastic and extremely helpful to our son. Highly recommended.
Laura
Keith is fantastic! He expects the highest level of preparation and performance from me at all my lessons and thus pushes me to be a better performer every time. He tailors my lessons to exactly what I need - specific work for upcoming auditions as well as more general work to expand my repertoire. His lessons are also not not limited singing coaching - he also provides coaching in acting and movement. I feel like I have presented some of my best work to auditors as a result of working with Keith! And he does all this in the friendliest manner possible so that my lessons are always a great combination of fun, hard work, and inspiration.

She dosent tell u if you are a bad actor or if you are going to make it as an actor she helps you improve and tells you what u are already good at and what we could work on.

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
