I have taken Acting with Christian for about a month now. He is truly passionate about what he does and pushed his students forward to succeed. Compare to my first lesson, I felt more confident in myself to get into character and expressing it out. He went above and beyond in explaining every little detail to help in every step of the way. He is one of the best teacher so far that I have taken on TakeLesson. I look forward to every lessons, plus they are quite fun!

I've been teaching Juggling for 10 years. I have juggled 9 balls, 6 clubs and 7 rings. I have spent hundreds of hours practicing and have a vast stock of tricks. I can teach anyone how to 3 balls juggle within 15 minutes. After that, I can teach any tricks within a month or so of practice, depending on the amount of practice one is willing to do outside of meetings. If the student leaves the path of training up to me, then the first big trick will be Mill's Mess. The progression from there will be to learn site swap notation and and 4 balls. After that, I can will start diversifying the lessons with learning club and ring juggling. After a few months, the student will be able to pass 6, 7, and 8 clubs with another individual, juggling 5 balls, 5 rings, and 4 clubs as well as several tricks for each. I can't wait to start teaching tossing objects around with you!

In tap, we will start off simply with shuffles, flaps, ball changes and work our way up to more advanced moves that combine rhythm and coordination. It will be fun combinations set to clean music that is popular today!

I'm a beginner actor and Khuloud helped me set a clear path for establishing my career as an actor. She has extensive experience in the industry and gave me real-world tips on how to be successful. I am confident that with the knowledge I gained from this class I will be able to make a lot of things happen for me. I appreciated her flexibility and willingness to work with my schedule. She took our time seriously and worked to make it as beneficial as possible. Very likable person and easy to learn from. She has a genuine love for acting and eagerness to see others with a similar passion succeed. I will most likely be taking instruction for her again in the future.

"I have studied with a dozen acting teachers over the years. Darren Dowler is not only the most knowledgeable acting coach I’ve ever had, but he has a talent for teaching. And he’s not just a coach. He’s a full-time performer, director and filmmaker out in the field doing it, booking the roles, and acting. He has so much real world experience to draw from it’s obvious why he’s one of the most sought after coaches in the business. You’ll learn more than one lesson from him then a whole summer with another coach. I just saw him in the movie Palau in which he plays the Reverend Billy Graham. He was amazing.

And- he’s great with kids!"
