My primary goal is to work with you so you feel like you can walk into an audition room feeling prepared, confident, and free to show people who you are through exciting material.
I will work with each actor so they understand their text and how they personally connect to it. I coach for monologues, film/tv sides, theatrical sides, and musical theatre auditions.

I have an MFA in Acting from the Theatre School at DePaul in Chicago, IL and a BFA in Musical Theatre from Shenandoah Conservatory. I have traveled the world teaching and performing for more that 14 years. I lived and worked in New York City and I am currently in Chicago, IL. I have extensive experience training and auditioning for theatre, film and TV.

I worked with NYU's graduate Musical Theatre writing program to produce and develop new works outside of New York City. I have also performed in numerous new work and play development series around the country. This experience gives me a strong understanding of how ...

Private Shakespearean Acting Teacher

Hello! I'm Dominic R. (though I'm commonly known as "that guy" to very close friends) and I'm an artist. I'm an actor, teacher, singer, comedian, writer, graphic designer, and a really, horribly novice ukulele player.

I. LOVE. ACTING. And I love sharing my passion for that with other people, actors and non-actors alike.

In my acting coachings, I utilize many different exercises to make sure that each student has the knowledge and techniques required for them to feel completely, fearlessly themself. Every artist approaches their craft differently, but in acting, honesty is everything. Together, we'll discover what that means for you and how to make you shine your brightest light on stage or on camera.

Topics Include:
On-Camera Acting
On-Stage Acting
Musical Theatre Coachings
Audition Prep
Comedic Writing and Performance
Cold Reading Skills
and more!

Dalia is honestly my go-to acting coach. She is effective, talented, funny and fair. Regardless of what I am rehearsing, and no matter how nervous I might be, she always knows how to make me feel comfortable. I struggle with stiffness and nerves in the audition room, and she has a great way of shaking those nerves right out and giving me concrete goals to focus on. She gets me out of my head and into the work. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Auriana A
Dalia was very insightful and detail oriented with my work. She made sure I found intention behind each line, which got me more confident with the monologue.
Karlon
I was nervous before my first session with Dalia, but as she saw my acting skills, she worked with me on different acting tactics and techniques as well as understanding what was happening during the monologue. She also encouraged me while I was rehearsing the monologue. So far, I have only had 1 session, but it exceeded my expectations. I can't wait for my next sessions with Dalia.

"I`ve been taking Shakespearean acting lesson with Michael for a month now and I am very satisfied with him and his method.
Although, I have much of prior acting experience, I was quite unfamiliar with Shakespeare´s plays, lofty language and his metaphors, Michael helped me get to the essence of it very quickly.

He´s a very reliable and effective acting teacher. He`s also punctual, always arrives on time with a plan of what we are hoping to achieve in each lesson. His clear and structured method of teaching enables steady progression.
I definitely recommend him."

"Michael is a fantastic teacher! He helped me work on my Cleopatra among other great characters. He is focused, knowledgeable, passionate and has a profound manner in making the text accessible-current and personal. I used to have difficulty relating to a piece, the language intimidated me. Michael helped me to make the text my own, coming from my own heart. It changed how I worked on everything, both classical and modern."

"Not only is Kelsey proficient and very knowledgeable, she also has so much enthusiasm and an obvious love for teaching. She put me at ease right away and from the very beginning showed such excitement to be working with me. She comes prepared, takes the session very seriously, but also has fun with it so time flies by. I'm honored to be her student and pupil, and look forward to many more acting lessons, as she imparts her wealth of knowledge of Shakespeare and acting technique."

"I was always afraid I couldn't learn Shakespeare, but Nicholas explained the intent on the word, the intent on the line. Soon, I was so caught up in the meaning of the lines and the story I was telling in that moment that I was able to engage in the role, smoothly, without worrying that I was performing Shakespeare. He broke it down so I could understand it, and then feel confident doing it. Highly recommend!"

"I've had the pleasure of working with Anthony for almost a year now and it has been the best decision I've ever made. Anthony is the type of teacher that knows your potential and will do everything he can to push your skills to the next level. He challenged me on my diction, reading lines out-loud, and taught me techniques on how to understand the character I was playing in ways I never would have thought. I can't say enough amazing things about him!"

I now have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the lines than which I have learned in school. I would highly recommend his coachings to any actor!"
