She taught the first live class I ever attended. She’s super upbeat and encouraging. I was super nervous with it being my first class, but her positive attitude instantly helped me to feel relaxed. Will definitely work with her again in the future!

Racheal did a wonderful job helping my daughter with her stage presence.
Sara V.
My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!
Steve
Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

Vandi is an excellent teacher. She is patient, very good natured, and fun. I highly recommend Vandi.
Gardner H.
I was pretty nervous at first, more uncomfortable than nervous I suppose, but Vandi was quick to put me at ease and as we started working through different exercises and ideas I became more comfortable and got more out of my time with her. She's super nice and has a natural warmth about her that is welcoming and encouraging. .

Vandi is so warm and real. She is patient and gently corrects my mistakes. I can already hear a difference in the quality of my speech.

I've graced the stages of some of NYC's most beloved theatres including; The National Black Theatre, The Public Theatre, 13th Street Rep, and HERE Arts Center. I’ve performed worldwide in places like Athens, GR. I have worked with world-famous directors like Broadway's Kenny Leon and Dennis Hilton-Reid, and received training from some of the world's top acting institutions (The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, CalArts). I have directed regionally and in New York, I teach regularly with The Family Repertory Company (Where I have served as a resident actor and director since 2016), and have students spanning the globe! I strive to acquire as much knowledge about this craft as is possible and to share that gift with the world. A wise man once told me, “The only reason to act is that it hurts too much not to.”

After a long time of searching for an acting coach, I finally met Darius.

His coaching approach is very unique and truly changed my career and skill as an actor. He has a depth of knowledge and is very caring.

I highly recommend Darius.
Jordyn
Taking classes with Darius was tons of fun. Helped me through a few problems with a monologue I needed to learn and helped add another layer to it that I didn't even think of. I definitely recommend taking one of his classes as it'll help you reach into whatever piece you're working on and draw out something new for your character work and overall understanding of the play/film/show. if you're wondering whether you should do it or not, I say, take the class! In the long run, you'll be grateful for the help.
April
Darius is a great teacher. Not only does he care about his students, but his attention to every detail is spot on. A true theatre artist in every respect of the term, Darius is just as talented as a performer and playwright. Take class from him before he becomes the next Lee Strasberg and the waiting list is eons long

He has been very patient with our technology troubles and is a great teacher. The online format has actually worked very well. We highly recommend!"

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."
