My name is Deja!

Do you want to build your confidence? Command the attention on any dance floor? Prepare for an audition? Or simply brush up on some dance moves? I am the girl for you.

I have over 10 years of dancing under my belt, six of those years I've spent being a professional dancer. You may see me in: Apple's iPad 2 Commercial, So You Think You Can Dance Season 14, ShowTime at The Apollo, Volkswagen Car Show, America's Got Talent, Chris Brown Brown's "Party Video", etc.

I previously taught a class every Friday at City Dance in San Francisco. There is nothing more rewarding than witnessing a student thrive & knowing that I contributed to their growth in skill, confidence & overall presence when you walk into a room brings me so much joy & I can't wait to work with you!

Deja had her first lesson with my daughter today. Deja was great. Right on time; worked with my daughter literally through the last minute of her lesson. I could hear Deja giving direction and instruction, and she was very encouraging and supportive. My daughter really liked her, and is excited about the process. (whew!). Great job!
Myjah
I learned from Deja! 10 out of 10! She helped me become sharp in some movements and more feminine in others, the perfect blend! I witnessed her work with children too, she is great with people of all ages! Even when she couldn't do them all, she still helped me learn how to land my tricks! I love her! Thank you Deja!

Dalia is honestly my go-to acting coach. She is effective, talented, funny and fair. Regardless of what I am rehearsing, and no matter how nervous I might be, she always knows how to make me feel comfortable. I struggle with stiffness and nerves in the audition room, and she has a great way of shaking those nerves right out and giving me concrete goals to focus on. She gets me out of my head and into the work. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Auriana A
Dalia was very insightful and detail oriented with my work. She made sure I found intention behind each line, which got me more confident with the monologue.
Karlon
I was nervous before my first session with Dalia, but as she saw my acting skills, she worked with me on different acting tactics and techniques as well as understanding what was happening during the monologue. She also encouraged me while I was rehearsing the monologue. So far, I have only had 1 session, but it exceeded my expectations. I can't wait for my next sessions with Dalia.

I have little to no experience with guitar, but Ralph makes it very easy to get started and I began learning technique and chords right away. He clearly has a passion for music, but also experience in teaching others to play. He's not only compassionate and understanding for the difficulties you face as a beginner, but is also ready to challenge you and keep you motivated when learning gets frustrating. You'll progress quickly with him as your teacher.

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

Rebecca has been the most helpful coach I have ever worked with! Some of what she has guided me in was tricky to do online but she always finds a way to make activities work. It is a fun class, and I can tell my skills are growing a lot from working with her.

We've been doing a lot of work on accent training that is going well as she can pick up on things I didn't know existed; as well as helping me work through the little things you wouldn't think about in commercial and monologue work; as well as basic concepts that I needed more practice in.
All around great instruction.
