Tanya has a special gift for teaching dance. She really understands all of the elements that go into a properly executed dance move, and more importantly, she really knows how to explain those elements in an approachable manner. I will definitely be purchasing additional lessons with Tanya.

Hunter S.

Los Angeles, CA

I play Marty on the Golden Globe winning show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Whether you are an actor looking to take your career up a notch or just want an awesome way to build focus and confidence, we will achieve your goals together. As a teacher and working actor in film/tv, classical theater and improv comedy, there are few things I love as much as assisting students in making breakthroughs and discoveries.

About Hunter

With both a classical theater and improv comedy background, over the past 15 years, I have performed everything from Shakespeare with Tony Award winning theaters to hit sitcoms on network television.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whatever your goals, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you there ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fu
n on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.
