Hey there fellow actor!

I'd love to help you on this journey called Acting. Whether it's theater, film, or simply the business side of it all, I've been there and I'd be honored to help you.

A little about me: I have been acting since I was three, starting in community theatre. Then, I began pursuing my dream of acting for the screen. I started studying a lot and found myself in weekly classes. Then on a set that would later win me Best Actor and nominate me for Best Female Actor in a festival. I then went to LA (because that's what you're supposed to do, right?) and pursued my dream at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I had an agent while in LA and was going on auditions, but I wasn't liking it. So, after lots of research, I up and moved to Atlanta, GA.

The truth is, what makes me a unique teacher is that I am still growing and learning, but I have been just starting out, or not able to just get that monologue down. We are all on different stepping stones, and I ...

Hello there!

I am a working actor with over 20 years of professional experience. Prior to moving to LA, I worked in Chicago theaters for 7 years and served as an adjunct faculty member at Cal State Fullerton for another 7 years teaching beginning acting classes. I am a member of Actors' Equity; the union of professional stage actors and I hold an MFA in Acting from Cal State Fullerton. Recent stage credits include South Coast Repertory, New Swan Shakespeare Festival, Capital Stage Sacramento, Golden Thread Productions, and The Great River Shakespeare Festival.

I'm particularly adept at working with complicated and classical language, including Shakespeare. I'll help you make sense of the language in a way that is actionable and dynamic to watch. My approach is Stanislavski based, but I tend to incorporate other methods as well.

My goal is always to give my students the tools to empower themselves to create strong choices that are supported by the text. I love working with ...

BEST. COACH. EVER!!! I am an actor who worked with Adam the first time a few years ago. I needed help with a monologue and contacted him to help. After just a few sessions Adam helped me to have an AMAZING audition that got me the part! His brilliant ideas, thoughts, and suggestions were invaluable and I still hire him from time to time to work on material with me. Do yourself a favor and hire him!!!

My goal is to share my knowledge as a classically trained actor and film director. I will create lesson plans catered to each individual that captures the complex and wonderful world of theatrical and on-camera performance. Students will be exposed to various acting methods created by Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, Michael Chekhov, and others. Students will participate in multiple exercises and performances that will build and strengthen their bodies, voice, mind, and heart.

I needed help with a college audition and had a close deadline. Shirley was able to help me prepare and feel confident about my work. She also told me what to expect when going into the audition so I would not be nervous.
Patrick
Shirley was an exceptional instructor that gave in-depth feedback and coaching to help elevate my performance as an actor. She worked tirelessly to help elevate my performance as well as other cast mates. I look forward to working with her again.
Belinda
Shirley is amazing! She walked me through the audition process step by step. I knew what to expect, and how to conduct myself in the audition. Mostly though she was encouraging of me and my talent after our lesson I felt so empowered to keep going, and I got the job.

Before beginning the lesson, I ask the student what he or she wants. What does he or she specifically want to learn or gain from dance lessons? My lessons are completely tailored around my student's wants and needs. Dance is supposed to be a fun, relaxing form of expression, so I like to help my students express themselves through movement in a way that is comfortable and fun for them.

About Jennifer

I have been dancing in some form or fashion since the age of 3. I did ballet and tap recitals in preschool, took recreational gymnastics and cheerleading classes in elementary school, and did allstar dance and allstar cheerleading in middle school and high school. When I went away to college, I c
