First of all, let me just say, I love people. What really makes me happy outside of pursuing my dreams as a performer is watching other performers, make their dreams come true. I have a gift for helping others come out of their shells and be the unique individuals that they are met to be.
I specialize in building confidence in order to bring out the best of each student. I base each workshop on the student and his/her level and goals.

I tailor each class according to the strength or weaknesses of the student. I also focus on assisting students who seriously decide to pursue the industry professionally. I don't promise to make you a star but I do coach you to be prepared to become one if that is your goal.

About Yvette

I really love watching performers grow. Some students refer to me as a life coach, because after working with me, they see drastic changes in their personal and professional lives. I am very PATIENT. I believe that all things are possible if you are willing to work hard and not take it all too

I've been teaching acting for several years and my students have gone on to pursue film, perform in community and school productions, gotten into college programs, and pursue careers in acting. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to perform a monologue and as time goes on you'll have a full repertoire of monologues and skills ready to go! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

Vandi is an excellent teacher. She is patient, very good natured, and fun. I highly recommend Vandi.
Gardner H.
I was pretty nervous at first, more uncomfortable than nervous I suppose, but Vandi was quick to put me at ease and as we started working through different exercises and ideas I became more comfortable and got more out of my time with her. She's super nice and has a natural warmth about her that is welcoming and encouraging. .
Neal P.
Vandi is so warm and real. She is patient and gently corrects my mistakes. I can already hear a difference in the quality of my speech.

I offer Acting training with three different types of focuses:

- Acting Lessons: If you are interested in the craft of acting and want to become a better artist I create a weekly/monthly lesson plan which will serve your unique needs. Lessons will be based around your experience level, your interests, and your end goal as a performer.

- Audition Coaching: Monologue/Scene/Side coaching for anything from a Community Theater audition to a callback for Chicago Fire. We will attack your audition material analytically, psychophysically, and psychologically.

- Industry Coaching: What does an agent do? How do I get noticed by a Casting Director? How can I get to perform in a Motion Picture? What type am I?
The focus of my Acting Industry Coaching is to expose the actors to all the industry tools and info that can make them successful. Explaining Unions, how a headshot can get you through the door, and how to figure out type, are what I focus on in these lessons.

About Daniil

Looking to become more confident? A better actor? Find a new agent? With over 10 years of industry experience as an Actor, Director, Artistic Director, and most importantly, educator, I help people from Ages 5 to 80 sharpen their craft, turn anxiety into self confidence, and own themselves so th

Jared
This was my first ever acting class and Dan has done a great job! He’s really made me understand how to put myself in the moment with repetition exercises. Very laid back and easy to work with but also professional. Would recommend to anyone looking to become a better actor.
Sophia
Daniil worked with me on preparing multiple callback sides, both classical and contemporary. He is the kind of coach that has the specificity and honesty to push you beyond what you thought you were capable of, and to open your eyes to a new way of seeing your work. Daniil was able to connect my early experience with Meisner training to the sides that I had in front of me, in a way that was challenging but not scary. I left the session with a new handful of tools to prepare for the upcoming callbacks, and a new perspective on what it meant to reach honesty and authenticity as an actor.
Emily
Dan is an incredible instructor. His keen eye and ability to coach is a true gift. Dan works in specificity, detail and nuance; I am always a better actor having worked with him. Dan is knowledgeable about the business and offers great advice on agents, managers, type and casting. I highly recommend Dan as an acting coach and a business coach.

"The skills I gained as an actor studying with Shauna Kanter have never left my acting toolbox and feel as fresh in my mind today as when she first taught me. Shauna brought a whole world of new possibility to my acting, as I reached new heights with character physicality and also found new ways of accessing emotional depth within my character. Shauna always created an inspiring environment that felt safe to for me to push myself and not be afraid to fall. My experience with Shauna was inspiring and so valuable. Consider yourself lucky to have found her."

Audition Monologues for Kids, Teens, and Adults: Every Actor's Worst Nightmare!

Struggling to find that perfect audition monologue? It can take some time, so be prepared to be patient! Read on as Courtney P., one of our acting teachers in the Orlando area, offers her advice: Let's face it, most actors HATE monologues. They are tedious, and most of the time, it's ridiculously hard to find the right one.

How to Handle Rejection as an Actor

One of my college acting professors told us, “if you can’t handle rejection, find another major. Actors are rejected more than they’re cast. You will have to deal with rejection every day; and if you let it get to you, you won’t last long”. Those words stuck with me all these years: not only for their brutal honesty, but also because I wish I had asked her: how do we deal with all this rejection? Fortunately, there are many A-list stars who can tell you stories of how they experie …
