Whether you’re in love with salsa, bachata, cha cha, rumba, tango, swing; waltz or just have an event you need to look good for or you want to make someone happy; I’m here for you! I’m very passionate about teaching and dancing and I make sure that everyone’s dance journey is filled with fun, friendship, understanding.
My students always leave with a smile, saying they feel more motivated and energized after the lesson. I adjust to their learning style, keep instructions clear, simple and do my best to make them feel free to express themselves; to let them know mistakes are part of the learning process and to move towards their specific goals with every session.

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.

First of all, let me just say, I love people. What really makes me happy outside of pursuing my dreams as a performer is watching other performers, make their dreams come true. I have a gift for helping others come out of their shells and be the unique individuals that they are met to be.
I specialize in building confidence in order to bring out the best of each student. I base each workshop on the student and his/her level and goals.

I tailor each class according to the strength or weaknesses of the student. I also focus on assisting students who seriously decide to pursue the industry professionally. I don't promise to make you a star but I do coach you to be prepared to become one if that is your goal.

About Yvette

I really love watching performers grow. Some students refer to me as a life coach, because after working with me, they see drastic changes in their personal and professional lives. I am very PATIENT. I believe that all things are possible if you are willing to work hard and not take it all too

I have worked with Yvette and she is the best in her business.
Michelle
I've taken classes with lots of teachers in the LA area throughout the years, and Yvette is one of the best. She has the gift of reading you as an artist and challenging you completely. I feel stronger as an actor after working with her. She is warm yet direct in a way that makes you comfortable, very important in building any artistry. I highly recommend Yvette!
Elizabeth
It is a pleasure for me to share my story regarding my acting experience with Yvette. I met her about four years ago, highly recommended by a friend. Of course, I had no acting experience; just knew that I wanted to pursue this at some point. Considering, my being a senior, I needed lots of help with patience. That I had with Yvette.

She immediately, made me feel very comfortable. She tried me with some roles, calmed my fears, and coached me right into my comfort zone. However, she kept me up-to-date and realizing that I could reach beyond just the comfortable area if I wished. I booked my first two auditions. I started on stage, now I am in her home, and online. She is a great teacher, acting and inspirational coach, with a passion and love to help the student to reach your goal. She has become an endearing friend like a daughter to me.

Wherever you are in your acting world, or just beginning, have faith, and Yvette can help YOU, also!

I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

Steven was just awesome! He's so positive and fun. He's super patient, and his way of teaching is very clear. He follows the pace my wife and I wanted, and tailored what we learned to what we liked. We didn't know what we would like, but he helped us figure that out too! I highly recommend Steven.
