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.

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.

About Amanda
Hello Lovely future students!!! I am a professional actor, dancer, choreographer, director and a Texas state certified educator! I have taught nearly every subject in public schools from grades k - 12 as well as acting, musical theatre, dance and voice at the college level! I attended both SMU and TCU, graduating with a BFA and MFA in Theatre performance, dance, radio/tv/film production and Criminal Justice!

Acting students can expect to improve each week in their character development, technique, script analysis and realistic performance abilities. We will also explore theatre spaces, prepare for auditions and determine specific physical warm ups designed for the individual student to assist in releasing tension. I strive to help all students perform at their highest level and obtain professional opportunities!

Dance students can expe
ct to learn technique styles and combinations in accordance with the style of dance we are learning. Students will experience various forms of dance, warm ups and physical conditioning. We will practice technique as well as audition and dance call preparation. It is a goal to assist to students in their craft and guide them to achieve their personal goals within dance -whether that be stage or commercial dance!

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

Academic students can look forward to a fun learning environment, honing in concepts from their subject in a unique, non lecture style. I am an incredibly hands on teacher and love to incorporate technology into my lessons!

While the arts are my passion, a well rounded academic student is a must! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better performer!

Everyone is uniquely different with special goals, ways of learning, and ideas in mind. I find pride in quickly learning what each of my students are looking for and leading the way to their own personal victories, no matter how big or small! I teach a number of styles including, but not limited to, Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Contemporary/Lyrical, Hip Hop/Street Jazz/Jazz Funk, Turns, Leaps & Jumps and more. Although I possess over 10 years of teaching experience, I find myself learning something new with nearly every student I encounter. Every student is a new opportunity for me to inspire AND be inspired.

The general structure of my classes are similar. Thorough warm up, which would include exercises, drills and foundational practices from the Ballet, Modern and Jazz genres, stretching, strengthening and conditioning sequences and finally execution of concepts directly related to the style I might be teaching sum them up well. In the end, my goal is for my students to leave feeling ...

About Brandyn
I am a Multi-Award Winning Dancer, Teacher & Choreographer with a passion for advancing the dance art form as a whole!!!

I perform, teach and choreograph numerous styles and subjects in dance including, but not limited to,

- Ballet (Vaganova)
- Hip Hop/Street Jazz/ Jazz Funk
- Jazz
- Modern (Horton)
- Contemporary
- Lyrical
- Classic & Contemporary Partnering
- Improvisation
- Creative Movement
- Choreography 101
and more!

I received my BFA in Dance Theatre Performance from Marygrove College in Detroit, MI where I have tried to contribute to the overall condition of the dance community. During my time there, I trained with many renowned dance instructors and choreographers from all over the country. Among many awards and forms of recognition, I have received scholarships from outstanding programs such as Complexions
Contemporary Ballet, Deeply Rooted Dance Theater and Point Park University. These opportunities and others positioned me to work with artists such as Brian McKnight, Jodeci and, Jazz Artist, Jonathan Butler to name a few. Over the past 10 years, I've had the pleasure of dancing, teaching and choreographing for numerous competitive, pre-professional & professional dance companies throughout Michigan and surrounding states.

I have been dedicated to the empowerment of artists and the enhancement of our community and that passion fuels me daily. With that in mind, I created both a dance and production company to work towards those goals. In 2018, I received the high honor of becoming a Gilda Award Recipient with the Kresge Foundation for all of my endeavors. It was an amazing thing to be recognized by such an organization as well as fellow artists throughout my community.

Since then, I have continued to inspire particularly the youth. I have taken on a position as Co-Director at a multi-award winning, internationally-ranked dance facility where I am able to cultivate the future of dance everyday. I continue to dance, teach and choreograph throughout the state and plan to create growth within myself so that I can help others do the same.

Mr. Brandyn is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!! He is an amazing dancer and pushes all of his students to be the best we can be. He's hard on us yet he understands each of our differences and encourages us to embrace them. When I take class with him, I mentally prepare myself to push my limits and seek results because I know that if I dont, I would be doing myself a disservice and futhermore, HE WILL lol. Mr. B has inspired me to become a professional dancer because I've never seen someone love anything as much as he loves dance. I want to experience a love that great. His passion for the art form oozes from him and I feel lucky to have him as a teacher!!!!

Love you Mr. B ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’—

Hi! I am a flamenco dance instructor. I teach beginners all the way up to the advanced level. I have studied flamenco for more than twenty years.

In 2018 I was a finalist and the runner up for the New York State Certamen (national flamenco competition). I spent several months this year (2019) studying flamenco in Spain (Sevilla and Madrid).

Let me help you reach your dance goals today! :)

About Genevieve
I am a pediatric physical therapist and in my free time I love to explore language, culture, and art.

I graduated from Georgetown University with a BA in English literature and a minor in Spanish and Sociology prior to continuing my studies at UT Medical Branch where I received a doctorate in physical therapy.

During my undergraduate education, I studied abroad in Argentina and there my love of languages took off. Since then, I have studied Spanish and Portuguese and consider myself proficient in both.

I have spent time living abroad over the past decade in South America, Europe, and Asia and it was there that I began to teach English. Sharing the gift of language is not just fulfilling for me, but it is also fun.

I am also a dance teacher for children and adults and love the evolution that I witness in both my language and dance
students as they progress toward their goals.
