In this lesson I’ll help you make character choices for any upcoming show or audition. Have an audition coming up? Bring your monologue or song you’re using and let’s find the best way to make the directors feel what you’d like them to so that you can get that role! Just starting out? Let’s work on the basics so that you feel confident enough to go and audition for your first show!

I have been dancing for the past 10 years, self taught. My dance style is Krump/Pop. Excelling at "hitting" "isolation" "and "ticking". Very few classes under my belt, ballet for 2 months, swing and salsa classes here and there.
Not really looking to make a lot of money, I genuinely like dancing and love teaching and being taught.

About Derrall

I like to dance and play with computers. I do workout/dance at the gym 3-4 nights a week, and go out dancing every weekend. I am very active and would love to teach any individuals anything that I've learned along the way. I can help with most computer problems, from software to hardware and

I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.

Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

I think that today there are some incredibly talented people out there who either think their story is not good enough or think they don't have enough to tell it. I'm here to tell you the truth and help you bring your ideas to the big screen.

I am an Award-Winning Filmmaker, I have been teaching Filmmaking for the past year around the world and I have built a community of other Award-Winning filmmakers whom I currently work with today. I like my students to be the best they can be and I have the ability to help them bring that forth.

Today we have access to a mega-powerful tool that can bring our ideas from text to the big screen in a matter of weeks. To go from a photo to a billboard. A group chats to a leading production team. A voice memo to a hit song. Today, everyone can be heard in high definition, seen in 4k, and sha

Blake is super informed and very motivated. He motivates you to work more and better. He shares everything he knows and supports you anyway he can...
He learned by him self so much and helps you do the same yourself!
I recommend him for Video Production or Film Production too. Check his work, the man does a lot of different things and all of them very good.
I totally recommend him :)

Voice Acting is a blast! I've enjoyed doing it professionally for two decades and I love it now even more than when I started. I love to work with students, enthusiasts and professionals of all ages- honing technique, developing their various styles, recording their V.O. reels and helping them to start making money using their voices!

Ms. Danielle is a wonderful / excellent instructor. I booked 10 sessions with Ms. Danielle for vocal training and it was worth every dollar. I am singing this week at a big event, and because of Ms. Danielle vocal training, I am prepared to sing three back to back songs with the strongest voice ever!!!! Ms. Danielle doesn't know it yet, but I do plan to make her my life vocal coach.

The rating says it all. Best. Instructor. Ever. Danielle is amazing. She's so patient and kind and loving. Half the reason I take lessons from her is because she makes me feel so good about myself. She's so much more than a singing teacher. She's a creative guide. She will help you move beyond self doubt and explore your creativity. And of course, my rhythm and pitch are improving rapidly. Can't recommend her enough!

I enjoy my first lesson with Ms. Danielle. She is a great singing coach. I am looking forward to learning great singing skills from this instructor.

"A truly talented and amazing teacher!

We learned a wedding dance from Kelly and coming from a guy with two left feet, she did an awesome job guiding us through and teaching us cool choreography to make us look good! Kelly is extremely professional and takes her time understanding what you want to accomplish and teaches at a great pace where you learn while continuing to move forward. Each lesson progressed very nicely while we learned in her home studio. It was a very comfortable space and we nailed down exactly what we were aiming to do. We learned three types of dance: ballroom, tap, and a swing/bollywood hybrid. Kelly guided us through each and made sure we were comfortable and happy in the end. She even cut the three songs together for us! I would highly recommend Kelly as she has a warm heart, great attitude, and is a wonderful teacher!"

"Carissa always gives me feedback in a very encouraging way. Once I go over a monologue or a script once, she'll talk about some of the characteristics that I might be able to adopt in order to be more convincing, but she'll also tell me which parts she liked, which parts I was hitting on, but didn't quite get, and anything else. She's super understanding, and she'll talk me through any parts that I was having trouble with extensively until she feels that I understand and am comfortable with the material and the directions. 1000 stars all the way!"

"My first spoken voice lesson was great! It was like getting a glimpse on a set of new and totally unknown tools that I could eventually find out how to use them for my expression. Though it was only a short lesson, it felt intense and concentrated and after the first excercises we did, I already felt that my throat had opened up a bit and that everything felt more clear and more connected. In a situation where I had to suddenly speak publicly right after the session, I remembered that I could reach a slightly deeper pitch after the excercises. It helped me relax my voice right in the situation. It's really great working with you, Karmyn! I'm looking forward to the next lesson."
