I've never acted before, and Shauna was warm, welcoming, and instantly made me feel comfortable. She creates a space that is open and relaxing. I am really looking forward to our work together.

I love her manner and kind spirit. I look forward to each week. She is showing me how to slow down and FEEL myself. I am one that feels others more often. She is fantastic in reading people and knowing what they need in particular to reach their goal.

Whether you are just starting out in your journey as an actor, or you are interested in refining your skills with relevant and applicable concepts and methods, I will devise a program tailored specifically to your aspirations. Character development, objectives, actions, dialogue interpretation, stage movement: just to name a few of the skills we will be studying and honing. We will work on monologues and scenes, both from theatre and film, to explore a variety of acting styles. And if it's Musical Theater you enjoy, we will unpack the elements in that genre, and prep you for auditions. Always, classes are predicated on fun!

Jessica
Acting class was so much fun! I wanted to try something different to challenge myself & my friends recommended I try an acting class because I’m so “extra” as they put it. Well I finally got up the nerve to try a class & J was so helpful & worked with me to feel comfortable. He never made me feel like I couldn’t do it, plus it was so fun that I can’t wait to try another class. If you are a beginner like myself than he is the perfect instructor for you.
Tim Jones
I thoroughly enjoyed my class with J. I didn’t know what to expect and was a little apprehensive at first but by the time I finished the session I was at ease. He broke things down to where I could understand being a novice, and made me feel like I belonged! I highly recommend J to anyone who wants to really learn about the true art of Acting!!
