I am a professional performer, director, and acting coach with over 35 years of experience, and I love leading you to your best work! I can prepare you for a specific audition ( with monologue, sides, or song), or I can provide material so that we can work on a broad set of acting skills and techniques. I will provide guidance, feedback, training, and industry tools, all to have you feeling great about your newly-refined work on stage. My teaching style is energetic and encouraging, and layered with the insights I have gathered from my work as a producer, director, playwright, and performer in all stage genres ....Drama, Improv Comedy, Musical Theater, Comedies, Farce, Commedia dell'Arte. Let's work!

Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence.

Ballet is one of my passions. From a young age I had lots of wiggles. I wanted to dance to music! My mom home schooled me all the way till I graduated giving me more opportunity to pursue my dancing career. On breaks you would find that I was dancing in my room during the day or in some other part of the house. I believe you can dance anywhere. I want to help others learn to captivate their unique abilities and develop them into beautiful ballet dancers right in their home.

My experience in ballet includes scholarships to the Orlando Ballet and Pittsburgh Ballet Theater. I have danced with The Florida Ballet as a company member and taught ballet in Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, and Orlando. I have had the opportunity to teach Ballet technique to dancers who work for dance companies all over the world. I've trained professional dancers in Ballet from theme parks like Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. I teach a wide variety of ages, starting as early as age 5 and all the way

Ms. Love has been one of my favorite ballet teachers to this day! I worked with her both privately and in group class settings, and both experiences helped me grow technically and artistically. She really connects with each and every one of her students, and her corrections are creative and effective.

Ms Serena is a quality teacher with high expectations and rigid policies. My daughter took lessons for approximately six months. During this time, she learned a great deal regarding vocal technique and the physiology behind quality sound and breath control. Ms Serena also guided my daughter through the creative writing process of composing her own song.
Lana
Serena was so kind, encouraging and helpful in beginning my vocal training. She focused on the fundamentals, explaining and answering every question I had, teaching me about proper technique, vocal health, audition etiquette, and more. She was also always willing to listen to how I was feeling and was very kind and welcoming at all times In a very short amount of time, my vocal technique and quality improved, and I now am a much more confident and healthy singer. Serena is amazing!
Lynnette
My daughter and I are very happy with how Serena coached her. Her technical way of teaching has helped Jana , my daughter, understand the mechanics of singing better. We booked the $400/5sessions promo in preparation for my daughter’s competition and we are happy to say that she did very well, thanks to Serena’s coaching.
Serena is very professional, communicates clearly, and is excellent in her craft. It is unfortunate that due to other family affairs, we are unable to continue with her.

"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."
