About Detrece
DeTrece "Dee" Lavender is a native of Miami, Florida. When her family moved to Sarasota, she was afforded the opportunity to study music and the performing arts as a student of the Westcoast School/Henry L. Porter School of Music. It was then that Dee began to understand the power of the creative arts as an effective form of emotional expression and release. By middle school, DeTrece began fine tuning her natural talents by studying classical voice which earned her several starring roles in the Sarasota Youth Opera, The Aslo Theater and the Players Theater. She is also a proud former member of the Westcoast Black Theater Troop in Sarasota, FL. Under the caring leadership of these opportunities, she was able to combine musical and life experiences in order to offer a more well rounded educational and musical experience for her students.


She was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where she received a dual Bachelor of Music degree in Music Therapy and Vocal Performance (Class of 2003). It was through her service as a music therapist, Millieu (residential) counselor and music teacher in the Boston City Public Schools/Greater Boston Metropolitan Area, that she began to feel the call toward a greater understanding of the gravity and role of the socio-emotional needs of students (and their families/villages) in urban settings. This call brought her to Baltimore, MD where she enrolled in the Pastoral Counseling Masters of Science program at Loyola University. In addition to her studies, she currently teaches Elementary and Middle School choir/ Musicianship teacher in the Baltimore City Public Schools through the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids Program. She also serves as Minister Of Music and Arts at two local churches.

About Rebecca L.

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

About Rebecca
Greetings!
I am currently a full time drama and art teacher at Lumos Arts Academy; a private school I have played a role in pioneering. I also created a Theater and Film Program at Experience Arts School where students ages 5- adult could take classes (group or private) or join an acting company for regular performance gigs. I also directed multiple musicals during this time. My company competed with the AZ Thespians and took home many superior scores.
Personally, I have been acting for 25 years in the Mid and Southwest, studied theater at UWOshkosh, Film at Scottsdale CC, improv with iO in Chicago, and Meisner with Kevin Phipps. I was part of a musical repertory company based in Utah for 8 months, traveled around the Phoenix valley performing in 8 different dinner theaters for 8 years, and have produced and directed multiple professiona
l music videos for Soundwaves Productions in Gilbert.
I believe that each actor learns differently, and the best way is to become well-rounded in your training to discover what works best for you. I have become very well trained in identifying strengths and weaknesses in actors, and will work with you on the best technique to suit your needs and style.

Classes I have created curriculum for/taught include:
Monologues
Auditioning for theater and film
Script Analysis
Beginning- Advanced Improv
Beginning- Advanced Scene Acting
Uta Hagen's Repertoire
Acting for Film
Voice and Diction
Music Video Creation
Musical Theater Acting/Dance

Rebecca is very well rounded, any question I threw at her she answered perfectly with examples to back it up. All our lessons felt very nonjudgmental which made it easy for me to push my limits and focus on acting itself. She is also really flexible on times and your focus during the lessons. Overall, Rebecca was a great teacher who really helped me get improve and get comfortable with my acting

I have been in several productions with Rebecca and each time she has stretched me as an actor and performer. Rebecca really pulls you into part of the production by being open to your ideas about the character and challenges you to really owen your craft on the stage and your professionalism behind and off the stage. She truly is a developer and loves to see individuals grow. I cannot recommend her enough.

Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

Merritt Island, FL

My love for acting and the craft began in college, whereas I received a degree in Theatre Arts. I then pursued my dream in NYC and trained with reputable teachers and auditioned for several years. Learning both method acting and improvisation, I applied it to my stage work, soap work, and independent films. I continued my training and performing after moving to Los Angeles. Playing the body double for Nastassja Kinski in an HBO film and doing a variety of modeling gigs was good experience. Once I moved to Florida, I decided teaching youth was my calling and while I taught elementary school, I was director/ teacher for a summer theatre program for 3 years. I love sharing my acting knowledge with youth and tapping into their talent. Setting them up for success is so rewarding!

About Foy
I love working with youth! It is exciting for me to share what I know from my experiences but also to discover your journey with you. Diving into a script, selecting scene work, developing characters are all part of our process. Improvisation is also great training and beneficial and if you have a monologue for an audition that is my specialty. I am a big believer that theatre and the arts are important to have in your life. So if you are nervous, scared, never did anything like this before- make a leap and go for it!!!

With over 12 years of professional acting training and experience, it would give me great pleasure to share some of my knowledge and expertise with you! Whether it be lessons on the basics, audition help, characterization, or anything else you may want to learn. My Lessons will be catered to you and whatever you desire to learn about the crazy and wonderful world of acting. Knowing how to act not only gives you a new and unique skill set but it will also helps build your creativity and confidence as a person. Be bold and tell the story, it all starts here!

About Hannah
I am a professional actress with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theatre from Palm Beach Atlantic University. I have been acting for about twelve years now and it is my biggest passion in life!

Growing up as the goofy middle child in a big family I always felt like I didn't get enough attention or that I was overlooked. It wasn't until I stepped on stage that I truly was able to express myself and understand others around me. To me acting is so much more than just pretending, acting is a dramatic reflection of life. You can certainly learn a lot about life from doing it!

I love comedy, tragedy, and everything in between. I have been classically trained in Shakespearean theatre, improvisation, and techniques such as Meisner and Stanislavski. I have performed at theatre's such as The Cumberland County Playhouse, Ruth Eckerd Hall, Fran
cis Wilson Playhouse, Palm Beach Atlantic University Theatre, The Florida Renaissance Festival, Entr'act Theatrix, and most recently The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.

I have a huge passion for students of all ages. Along with performing I currently teach theatre to elementary school students through Drama Kids International. my curriculum will be based upon the unique needs of every student. I specialize in monologue and audition help but I would be happy to accommodate any students desire to learn absolutely anything about acting. For example: Improvisation, characterization, comedy, scene study, and much more! I am very spunky and energetic and if you are not enjoying yourself and learning new things every single lesson, then I am doing my job horribly wrong. Let me know if this sounds like a good fit for you!

I was so worried about auditioning for a lead role in The Sound of Music. Hannah was a tremendous help by teaching me not only to show emotion in my voice and mannerism but to match that same expression in my body language. Her constructive criticism and guidance helps me to achieve the role of Liesel Von Trapp! Thank you so much!!
