Tanya is really creative with her dance moves and makes my lessons lots of fun. She is awesome. I am always excited when it's time for my dance lesson. She is AMAZING with what she does! She is funny, creative and smart. I thoroughly enjoy myself in class and more importantly, I love the progress and growth I see in my dance skill/ability.

Wesley is just wonderful. I felt comfortable with him as soon as we met and I learned so much in just the first 30 minutes. And I already feel so much more confident that my speaking engagement will rock now that I have Wesley as my coach!

I love sharing the techniques I've honed working with Steppenwolf, Chicago Shakespeare and other Tony award winning theaters. We will work on techniques to "own the space", be heard, quickly drop into a character, raise the stakes, and make choices to create an exhilarating performance.

About Hunter
With both a classical theater and improv comedy background, over the past 15 years, I have performed everything from Shakespeare with Tony Award winning theaters to hit sitcoms on network television.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whatever your goals, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you there ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fu
n on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

I have a Clear Teaching Credential from California. Having been a high school drama teacher/director since 2004, I am very capable of teaching theatre arts. :0) I will travel to the comfort of your home (or your choice of location) to work with you.

About June
Hi! I've been teaching high school theatre arts since 2004. I've taught beginner classes, expert classes, improvisation, lighting, sound, carpentry, theatre history, IB Theatre, and much more.

Along with teaching, I've directed many shows, too. Some of the more memorable ones include Legally Blonde, Much Ado About Nothing, STOMP, Footloose the Musical, Sylvia, and Barefoot in the Park.

I'm also a singer/songwriter. I've been learning music since elementary school and writing since 1996. It's always been a personal hobby that I took very seriously. As a result, I've written a number of s
ongs for myself as well as for clients.
