We just had our first lesson with Ana. She got on great with our kids, and seems really to know what she's doing.
Tucker
Ana is just a really great teacher. First, she’s a really nice person. She’s also highly competent, patient, flexible, and obviously a wonderful dancer herself. She makes things fun, and yet still teaches in a classical way, which is great. Yay Ana!

I firmly believe that the ability to act well resides within every person who has the desire to act. In order to access this ability, actors need to develop a strong sense of self, increase their confidence, and rid themselves of the habitual tensions that hold them back. Therefore, I believe good actor training is personal, individualized, and focused on self discovery.

Lessons with me will focus first and foremost on discovering and honoring yourself as a person and an artist, and then on developing your relationship with the text. We can work on a specific piece or pieces (for an audition or a performance), or on plays, scenes or monologues that we choose together, to help develop you as a performer. No matter what, text we choose, we will focus on you speaking own personal truth through your performance.

I have recently been accepted into an elite graduate actor training program, and so I have had experience and success at preparing school auditions. I can help you put together ...

Working with Ryan is always a delight! He has helped me improve my confidence so much, and I feel so much more prepared for my auditions now. His method of teaching and the environment he creates in his lessons makes me feel safe to take risks with my acting in ways I never have before. Thanks for everything Ryan!

I can't wait to work with Ms.Monica.
Isabelle
Monica is the best!! She was so kind and helpful, she wasn’t hesitant on giving back helpful feedback. Her communication was amazing!! She sent several videos on how to improve jumps and extra tips for cheerleading. She has a very positive attitude and high energy which makes lessons 10x better and fun. We both saw major improvements just 5-10 minutes in. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!

Wonderful instruction to help my cheerleading jumps improve. Monica was knowledgeable, helpful and kind. Definitely would recommend!
