Bachelor's of Science-Mathematics Education and Elementary Education from Grand Valley State University

I have been dancing since I was 4 years old, and Jazz is my favorite style!
Hello, my name is Meagan D., and I have been living in the DC area for about 5 years. I attended Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. I have my Bachelor's of Science Degree, a Michigan's Provisional Teacher's Certificate, and a Maryland Teacher's Certificate. My major was Mathematics
I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.
I have taught acting for over 30 years based in the Meisner Technique, and I write and direct my own plays and films. I have years of experience as an actor, jazz saxophone player, singer and poet, as well as a philosophy degree, which I bring to my understanding of acting. I use this rich backgro

Caroline L.Book Now
Want to hit the stage and be in the spotlight, but don't know where to begin? Feel like you know your casting "type", but want to expand your possibilities? Is performing Shakespeare your worst nightmare? No problem! Within no time at all, I'll make sure that you'd feel confident to rock an audition, know what to expect for a rehearsal process, and how to hone your craft so you'll be prepared for anything a director throws your way. I've studied firsthand with Shakespearean actors who've performed at the Globe Theatre, Musical Theatre performers from both Broadway and the West End, and some of the best improv performers America has to offer. We can figure out which acting approach works best for you, and how you can effectively expand your repertoire. Let's get to work!

Nino immediately made me feel comfortable, his encouraging approach is so empowering. I feel as confident as when I’m dancing alone, but I’m learning a lot. He’s so knowledgeable, when I have specific questions about a move, he explains and demonstrates everything I need to know to execute it in the moment and to apply it later outside the lesson. Couldn’t recommend him more. Great, all around!!!!"
I recommend him."
Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
