I have been teaching acting since 2013 and use a combination of tools and techniques from many of the well known acting theories. Through exploration, you will learn how to use the "acting fundamentals" (given circumstances, personalization, actions/tactics) to discover an honest connection to the script.

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

I want to focus more on having fun instead of being super technical at first! Sometimes when we’re trying to get good at something we forget why we’re doing it! Dancing is meant to let loose and have fun. I’ll inform you on ways to make your dancing the most appealing to the eye and showing you how to move your bodies in ways that feel great.

About Kayla

Hi! I’m Kayla. I am here to help you learn in one of two skills; dancing and/or cooking/baking. I was on my high school dance team for 4 years and was captain for two years in a row. I enjoyed what I did and my coach would always tell me how great of a leader was and how well I improved every week.

Hip Hop has different components. But flow style and staccato movement is my Fave! Based on the music selection Hip Hop can scream powerful and intention. Musicality is what you'll feed off of.... transitions and hard hits. Each level will challenge you in all these areas; as well as dancing between beats. Come join me... you will feel it!

"Upon my first time working with Erin it was extremely obvious how technically proficient she is, although it should be no surprise, since she has a Masters in Acting from a top graduate program. Not only was I able to place complete and utter trust in her extensive knowledge of the craft, but her nurturing energy and humorous demeanor create such a positive environment to take risks and be exploratory in my work. I couldn’t ask for anything more in an acting instructor. She’s truly awesome."

"It really is more (Voice Acting) Script interpretation, and Diction; how to pronounce words in a script or paragraph, correctly. Fawn didn't waste any time, I was concerned about my Skype audio, no problem, and after a little wrangling, I figured out how to send her an audio file, and script I wanted her to look over.
She made notes, gave me suggestions, made comments on what I sent her, I'll do my home work; because I want to improve,and we'll do it again next week; same time time, same station... Sorry couldn't help that! She's the kind of coach I need right now!"
