So far, lessons with Ben have been VERY good (and productive! I'm naturally a reserved person, but He has gotten me to push beyond my comfort zone (that is "be louder"), which in retrospect has also helped me build my confidence in other areas. So at this point I look forward to having lessons, because I am growing in my understanding of how to use this God-given gift; a gift that's meant to be shared (not hidden away in silence).

You are an individual. You feel and see things through your own lens, a perspective shaped by your personal experiences. These acting lessons will not create a cookie-cutter actor, but one who stands out because they embrace their individuality. Together we will discover what acting means to you, and what you want to bring to the table. As a working actor, I can offer invaluable audition experience, and help you work on sides and monologues. If you are looking for material, we can search for it together and find something that fits you. Acting is all about having fun, so get ready to play!

About Kiera

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am a trained and working actor who would love to pass along the skills I've acquired in my time training and auditioning. I believe art makes the world a better place; that it can take us to new heights physically, mentally, and emotionally. In a fast-paced city,

Keomi is amazing. She is an excellent teacher: She can adapt to even the most beginner of students, gives great instructions/cues and is bright, fun, and positive all while remaining grounded with an eye for detail.

Keomi has a lot of positive energy and is sensitive to the the skill levels of her students so she tailors her classes to give just enough challenge while building on students’ strengths and experiences.
Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels.

"Step it up, NYFA! Haha I'm just kidding. But seriously... Like a couple of Tyler's students, I was a class-mate of his at the New York Film Academy. Well, I was a "program-mate," rather. He was a few levels ahead of me. But when I requested training with him and wanted to see his educational background, he whipped out this scroll-long-seeming beauty of a resume and WOW. He sure knows how to use his time wisely. This guy is a GENIUS! And, as I found out, was the youngest kid at the #1 film academy in the world... Who was also offered a scholarship, work/study, directing job, award-winners' mentorship, other promotional opportunities, and yada-yada. Anyway, he is a good friend of mine and has done a lot to improve my craft. Thanks so much, man. Keep it up!"
