It takes someone with nerves of steel to perform a monologue or an intense dramatic scene in front a paying audience. You will need to do more than just memorize words on a piece of paper. Learn how to connect your mind and body when it comes to working on a theatrical production. It takes longevity and respect for the craft to go through a full rehearsal process as well as a full run of a show. No one technique is right or wrong which is why we will work on a variety of them to discover what is best for you!

Very knowledgable teacher! Christian is patient with me as a beginner and has a great teaching method whereby he never tells you exactly how to perform a piece, as that is not what acting is about.

Annalise has a very impressive background in music and education, and it really reflects through her lessons with my daughter. She has instilled a lot of confidence in my daughter, to the point that she tried out for, and made, Advanced Choir at her school. I very highly recommend Annalise!

Bgcheck Background Checked


All proceeds to the art of Acting.

I have been a performing artist since the age of 9. Over the years, I have worked under dozens of production companies for film and stage. As world-renowned author, Malcolm Gladwell, states in his book "Outliers," it takes 10,000 hours of experience to be considered an expert in any field. After hitting that mark around Christmas 2012, I began to write a curriculum and had my first student a few weeks later.

We will study personal development, (how to prepare your “slate” for each new story), practice character and script analysis, (breaking down each new story to its fundamental core), invest in an understanding for set/stage/studio performances and the histories behind them, in addition to building a skill set in monetizing your growth in the entertainment industry. Lesson basics will include improv, cold reading, monologues and more.

I pull from a wide array of past learning experiences, (from the academy to the set/stage/studio, to my ...

My 11 year old son is already a working actor, but we needed someone to iron out the "rough spots" and give him some extra coaching. Since we don't live near LA, we first started working with Tyler because he was local. He is fantastic! My son just loves him, and they connect really well. When he had an audition for a lead part in a movie, Tyler took the time outside of our normal schedule for some one on one time at the last minute. He is always friendly, professional, and always flexible with our schedule. My son did not get that part, but he auditioned for a tv pilot a few weeks later. He didn't get the part he auditioned for, but he made such an impression on the director, they actually created a special rolel for just for him. We owe some of this to Tyler, he really knows how to bring out the best in your kid. Also, his fees are reasonable. You won't be disappointed!

Preparing for a dance competition? Auditioning for your schools dance line or local dance team? Want to learn how to get in touch with your “inner sexy”? Or just simply need some dance therapy? No experience, NO PROBLEM! You’ve come to the right person!!
I have been choreographing dances since the age of 10. From putting on shows for my family at family events to working hands on with groups and individuals in preparation for auditions or shows. Through my wide variety of dance styles ( contemporary, modern, jazz, ballet, Majorette-Style, Hip-Hop, lyrical, and liturgical) as well as my creative innovation, I offer each dancer an eccentric way to express themselves through dance. “ if you can’t say it, DANCE IT!” Between reasoned connection (specific to the occasion), improvisational movement, and structural molding, dancing to express will have you looking YOUR BEST! So whether it’s that solo audition you need help creating, or a piece for a show, maybe you need to relieve stress &

Being trained by Miss Luckie definitely pushed me to a lot of limits that I hadn’t previously been pushed to. I was instructed very well; there was patience, positive feedback, and discipline involved. When preparing for auditions, I was extremely nervous, however, with the help of Miss Luckie, I learned to be confident and dance with much enthusiasm. She was there through every step of the way. I’m forever grateful for her because not only was she a coach, she was a mentor. It’s definitely an experience, being under her leadership and mentorship, worth having.

For my husbands birthday I wanted to surprise him at home with a romantic dinner and sexy “show”. I am not that experienced in dance but I wanted to show him a new sexy side. When I reached out to Jessica I expressed to her exactly what I was hoping to pull off and she EXCEEDED my expectations. As I stated I have little dance experience and she convinced me to learn the choreography in HEELS! All in all, she made me feel extremely comfortable and made it super easy and fun!! I will be taking more lessons with Jessica! Highly recommended!!

Students can expect to learn the basics of acting, writing, scene study, monologue work, and auditioning through weekly vocal and physical warm ups, visualization exercises, theatrical activities and improv games. Students strengths will continue to be built upon while weak areas will be identified and reintroduced in a way that will allow it to "click" Specific course work in theatre, film & TV, or auditioning will be chosen by the student, is not mandatory, and can be changed at any time.

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.

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.

"Erin has been an amazing instructor so far! I bought a package of 5 classes and will most definitely be buying more asap!

To say I had some work to do in improving my speaking voice and tonality would be a huge understatement, but I have seen awesome progress in only 3 classes with Erin! I look forward to these lessons every week because Erin keeps the classes fun and relaxed! She also makes you feel comfortable to try new things with your voice and really pushes your limits (in the best way possible).

She has already helped me tremendously with my breath, tonality and just generally being aware of how I use my voice. If you are in sales (like me) and want to sound better on the phone or in front of clients --- TAKE HER CLASSES! She will absolutely help you achieve your goals"
