I just had my first lesson with an acting teacher besides a high school theatre teacher. I didn’t know what to expect but I’m glad I decided to try. I’m excited to see where I can go from here.

I am a full time professional magician with over 30 years of experience and over 15 years working as a full time pro. I will walk you through each and every step making sure that you not only understand how to perform a specific sleight or magic trick but WHY you do the particular moves or scripting when you do. I have a BFA in Theater Arts and use my training to help you understand the performance element of magic. Even if you are only performing for one friend, a well performed trick is better than and poorly performed one.

Ballet is one of my passions. From a young age I had lots of wiggles. I wanted to dance to music! My mom home schooled me all the way till I graduated giving me more opportunity to pursue my dancing career. On breaks you would find that I was dancing in my room during the day or in some other part of the house. I believe you can dance anywhere. I want to help others learn to captivate their unique abilities and develop them into beautiful ballet dancers right in their home.

My experience in ballet includes scholarships to the Orlando Ballet and Pittsburgh Ballet Theater. I have danced with The Florida Ballet as a company member and taught ballet in Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, and Orlando. I have had the opportunity to teach Ballet technique to dancers who work for dance companies all over the world. I've trained professional dancers in Ballet from theme parks like Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. I teach a wide variety of ages, starting as early as age 5 and all the way

Laura is an excellent teacher! She is very skilled, knowledgeable, friendly and will teach you proper ballet technique. She has helped me improve so much and I always enjoy my time with her too. I highly recommend her!!

Ms. Love has been one of my favorite ballet teachers to this day! I worked with her both privately and in group class settings, and both experiences helped me grow technically and artistically. She really connects with each and every one of her students, and her corrections are creative and effective.

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

About Rebecca

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production C

Sheila
A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Rebecca is wonderful at helping my daughter learn better public speaking skills.

I am ready to meet with actors of all ages and experience levels. This business is fast moving and can be vague at times leaving you wondering what could you have done differently if you didn't book the job. I want you to succeed, but first you need the proper tools to get to that next level of your career. From my experience of working in LA and Chicago as well as drawing from previous instructors, you will learn more than just basic acting exercises. Gain an upper hand on your contemporaries!

How important is it for aspiring actors to hire an acting coach? Find out in this guest post by New York, NY acting teacher Stephanie B... So let's assume you are an actor in NYC or LA - running around auditioning like mad, but not really getting too many call-backs. And not really getting cast, either! You think, maybe I should try working with an acting coach like some others do. But what can an acting coach do for me? Why give someone money to do---what? What does an acting coach do to …
