Ashleigh S.
It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

I started juggling for fun at age 10. Personally I can juggle up to 5 balls. Juggling is not as hard as it seems! It is a lot of fun and can be a great upper body workout. I have the knowledge and patience to help many levels of jugglers to improve their skills.

"To be honest I've never acted a day in my life before. Tamika was absolutely wonderful in helping me calm my (obvuously) nervous self, and worked with what I naturally brought to the stage and highlighted my own attributes. By the time I had opening night, I felt more comfortable than presenting to a bunch of investors (which is my day job). Thank you again Tamika, for really helping me develop skills and traits for the acting stage even I didn't know I had in me! I loom forward to working with you again soon!"

"Rebecca is very accommodating to my needs as I develop my journey into voice over acting. We have spent much time understanding how character dictates the type of voice I use, and I have grown in the range of voices I can do, as well as my proper pacing. Her husband Jim also has an amazing recording studio where we have gotten to experiment with cartoon voice overs to build my reel."

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."

"DB is the best!! I came to Donnabella at a slump in my career. I simply wasn't sure what to do next. She was so patient and positive, I couldn't be more grateful. We spent some time seriously considering my strengths and weaknesses. I learned to highlight my strengths, and developed my weaknesses! Most importantly, I had a sense of direction and fell back in love with the process of acting."

How to Learn Acting by Studying Your Favorite Actors

We all have our favorite actors – from the captivating smile of Julia Roberts to Leonardo DiCaprio’s boyish charm – but looks aside, there's plenty that goes into sustaining a successful career as an actor amid a sea of driven competitors. If you’re a budding actor, dreaming about moving to LA for your big silver screen break, spending Friday night in watching reruns of your favorite movies may not be as couch-potato-ish as it sounds.
