I'll show you how to develop a character or read a scene with another scene partner and I'll make the training fun! I'll help you choose good monologues and show you how to "cold read" a dialogue at an audition. Based on my education at Columbia I have lots of techniques to offer! If you want to you can bring a scene partner, otherwise I'll read the scenes with you.

Bgcheck Background Checked


An early career teacher! Experienced with audition coaching, scene work, and Shakespeare. I primarily use the Miesner approach to acting and physicalization tools to bring out the truth in every story. I am upbeat and dedicated to working with my students at whatever level they are at, to help them achieve their potential. I believe that actors are the pioneers of the human heart, they take the deep dive for those who are not ready yet. I am the perfect teacher for both those just getting into acting to more experienced actors needing some tune up!

About Julieanna

I am a professional Actress and Stage Combatant. I have been acting for about 10 years now. I studied acting and stage combat at Texas State University. While I was there I did plenty of shows including Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Mr. Burns, The Tempest, and A Dolls House. My Main focus

Constructs a safe, experimental, artistic environment where she nurtures and pushes you when needed. She is an excellent instructor in meisner repetition; being able to help the student access vulnerability in places they've never experienced. Knows and practices a copious amount of acting styles and techniques. From my experience working with her as a director/acting advisor, she is keen and eager to work on the human connection between actors, accessing emotions through extreme physicalization and stepping out of comfort zones, and experimenting with a variety of text to express various stories.

"My very first acting lesson was with Kelsey. Going into it, I was extremely nervous because I had no prior experience at all. However, upon meeting her, Kelsey showed me the most amazing kindness and patience as she molded me into a much better actor, as well as speaker. She knows exactly how to make her students feel as comfortable as possible around her. She is very funny and personable, and an overall pleasure to have as a teacher and coach. I'm still in her class now, and so far I can tell a huge difference in how far I've come 100% due to her. I would definitely recommend her to any aspiring actor at any level. Thanks Kelsey!"

"For the past 4 years, my husband and I have had the pleasure of dancing with Mr. Eugene and Ms. Ania. They have been an asset in our new experience of ballroom dance. As we have grown in dance, we have found Mr. Eugene and Ms. Ania to be extraordinary. My husband has some health issues (Stage 2 Alzheimer’s) and they designed a plan to help him achieve success. I had confidence issues and once again, they gave me the courage to perform. We have found the love of dance! Through their guidance, wisdom and knowledge of dance, we can honestly say...”We can dance”!"

Jake has worked with me on and off over the past 3 years and has been an absolute blessing. I have come to him when bigger opportunities have opened for me and he's kept me grounded in the work so I feel confident and prepared walking into the room. I've booked two guest star rolls since working with him, one on ABC, the other CBS and have seen a steady increase in callbacks the more often we work together. Couldn't recommend enough."
