Jenny W. Charlotte, NC

Meryl Streep said, “Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.” Acting is an honest exploration of self. Beyond memorizing lines and finding your place on set or stage, acting IS honesty. Your private lessons with me will allow you the freedom and trust to find yourself in the role you seek. These lessons will bring you closer to yourself and therefore closer to being the actor you wish to be.

Joanna B. Cornelius, NC

I have been working in this field for 25 years. I have worked in theater, commercials, voice over work, movies and television.

About Joanna

I had the starched, classic, traditional life once. And a successful business that made good money. On the outside it looked good. On the inside it felt like shallow routine. I wasn’t doing anything that mattered longterm, and eventually it shook me hard and swiftly to make sweeping changes in my life. ENTER LOVE + GRATITUDE I decided to get serious about designing my ideal life. I decided to take the leap to do something I absolutely loved: helping others pursue their passions in life. And it was the best decision of my life to date. Well, maybe the second best {my children will read this}. But you get the point. All things said, since entering the world of entrepreneurship more than fifteen years ago, the business of people has become a passion of mine. ENTER DESIGN + ...

Michael J. Matthews, NC

I've been teaching acting, in one form or another, since 1980 - almost as long as I've been acting. During that time I've learned that simpler one acts, the more dynamic one is as an actor, and the less they have to "act." So my goal for my students is to be as dynamic as possible while going for their goal and be as simple, and clear, and concise as they possible can. Mind you, those qualities aren''t easy to achieve, but when they are, magic happens.

Join me in discovering that magic.
