As a classically trained British actor and director with decades of experience in all genres of the business, I can help you develop your potential and talent and provide you with the tools and most importantly, the confidence, to take that audition by storm. Whether it be monologue preparation, cold script reading expertise, Shakespearean delivery, acting for camera, mastery of an accent, voice work, breathwork or movement, I will introduce you to acting techniques that will improve you performance and take it to the next level.

Best known in the UK for a starring role in a hospital soap, my career has ranged from straight drama to sit-com, theatrical comedy to Shakespeare and the classics, musical theatre to audiobook narration and voiceover.

I particularly relish helping launch young actors' careers but, whatever your age or ambition, I feel confident I can make a difference in spurring you on to achieve your goals and I promise you, we'll make it fun!

Nikisha is a great instructor and knows her stuff when it comes to makeup and skincare. I learned some new tips that I've been putting into practice which has elevated my makeup game! There were some scheduling conflicts which she cleared up quickly and was much appreciated. I definitely recommend reaching out to Nikisha for a makeup lesson if you haven't already!
Aisha
I had a good lesson with Nikisha, she is professional and friendly at the same time. I had most of my questions answered, she provided support before and after the lesson as well.
Kassandra Robinson
Nikisha provided makeup lessons to my 12 year old daughter once a week. She was very loving, kind, and patient with my daughter and flexible with our schedules. What I appreciate most is that she met my daughter on her skill level and then slowly built her up. Not only did she teach my daughter how to apply makeup, but she also taught her the importance of cleaning her face before and after applying makeup. My daughter enjoyed the lessons so much, I signed her up for additional lessons. I highly recommend Nikisha.

Boleslavsky and Strasburg techniques combined with British Classical School. -as the result of my own training. We begin with training of the body for the ability to be relaxed and ready for anything, working in a chair in the Lee Strasburg system, releasing tensions and assessing the difference and working week by week on the sense memory exercises to build up the strength of imagination and elemental response and creativity. We also work with theatre games as well as analytical techniques.

Gina is so knowledgeable in so many areas of dance- technique, expressiveness, somatics, book recommendations, energy work. She is a rare gem of a teacher. Someone who goes way beyond a typical dance class. She has so much experience to draw from. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Belinda and Daniella
Very good first lesson. It was a sound, thorough evaluation, along with a positive, encouraging exchange of ideas and detailed technique work between my child and Ms Gina. Ms Gina gets down to work quickly and kindly. Her depth of knowledge is impressive and refreshing. Amazing lady! Thank you!
Tina R.
Gina is a fantastic teacher. She has an eclectic taste in music which I love. She breaks down steps easily and is very encouraging. She also has many creative and expressive ideas like dancing to lines of poetry to get the body moving. Thank you Gina for the great lessons I will certainly be continuing!

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.

About Dakota

"It's an amazing feeling when you find someone who is a master at the craft and can teach it too!

Shauna's previous extensive theatre training and instruction is UNDENIABLE. Because of this, she brings much more to the table than the average acting coach.

She made me realize there's SO much more than just breaking down a scene and creating a character. She made me think about where the character is going physically as well as emotionally, and why. I continue to grow and improve with each lesson with her. I'm so lucky to have found Shauna, and strongly recommend her to all actors."

"This guy really knows what he is doing. And I can't believe his price! David, you should really be charging more. A friend of mine just booked a job after using him and he was the one who hooked me up with this guys info. I have gone to many different coaches but never really hit it off with them but david made it super easy. I mean the man has won a damn emmy! He let me take some pictures with it. I now walk into casting rooms more confedent and for the very first time ended up testing for not one but two different pilots that he has coached me on. Can not recommend this man enough!"

I came to Shauna to learn acting techniques and skills to improve my acting abilities. I learned so much from Shauna. I looked forward to my weekly acting lessons and the preparation that went into each lesson. Shauna helped me feel at ease, even when doing something new and challenging.
