I found the instructor to be very patient and experienced. I am a beginner and have no experience with playing the piano and hopefully will learn from her experience.
Matthew
What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.
Thandiwe Thomas
I’ve hired Kalyse as an actor multiple times. She’s also a great pianist and guitarist. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their instructor.

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film including How to Get Away with Murder, The Young & the Restless, and Jane the Virgin, I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces. What more can I do? What should I do differently?

We will work on material you have, or I'll send you a scene(s) from TV/FILM weekly!

We can cover Comedy, Drama, Improv, Commercials, and even the business side of things like resumes, headshots, website profiles, and representation.

Whether you're an EXPERIENCED actor looking for a refresh, or BRAND NEW; and whether you're interested in just FUN or real CAREER moves, I've got knowledge from real experience to share.

Character acting is, at least in my eyes, the greatest thrill of the performing arts. Being able to embody the complexities of a person or thing that seems completely different from that of yourself is the ultimate mark of a master of the craft of acting. Join me as we explore the various ranges of the human heart and mind. Create a skill set that will make you a director’s favorite actor. Learn techniques that will not only give you range, but keep you healthy and effective in whatever role you may portray.

I like to teach first from an analytical approach, but then evolve into a point where you can learn to feel in the moment as a character requires. Using proven techniques learned over the 17 years I’ve spent in the business we will prepare you to be able to handle a variety of different roles through technique practices and emotional exercises. Look no further, your path to excellence in character acting starts here!

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.

Kelsey treats her as an individual and I can tell my daughter is gaining a sense of maturity as she discovers different emotions during her acting lessons. We always wish the class was longer and my daughter always skips away on a cloud when class is over."

"I went through the list of tutors in this site and thankfully found the perfect match for my daughter. Shauna has been a 'breathe of fresh air' since my daughter started acting training with her. Even though our sessions have only been online thus far, her presence and excellent quality of teaching can be felt as if she is sitting right next to her. My daughter loves her and she has really been able to find 'her voice' and bring out the best in her as she prepares for her High School Auditions. Shauna is not only qualified to do the job but brings to her skill set a humanistic side that really makes her student want to learn and do better. I would give ten stars if I could!!!
I wouldn't recommend anyone else to help your child perfect and master their craft."
