Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.
Kenjah
I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

I've spent almost my entire life onstage. In fact, I appeared onstage before I was even born, as my mother performed in a play when she was pregnant with me. I was bitten by the acting bug at the ripe age of 3, and have been performing ever since.

When I was 18, I studied acting for both film and stage at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood, Ca. I later received a Bachelors degree in theatre, and have earned my Master's in Education. I've taught multiple subjects to a variety of ages, specializing in middle school and high school students, but teaching acting has always been my favorite.

My experience with theatre doesn't just come from being onstage or teaching. I also have extensive experience with directing and play-writing. I've also taught both of those subjects as well! For what I do, I love to teach others to do.

As a former Montessori teacher, I am adept at crafting lessons particular to each students' needs. I meet you at your level, and move ...

About Sarah

I first began acting 31 years ago and teaching in 2008. I was bitten by the theatre bug when I was only three years old and have been performing ever since. When I'm not up on the stage, I'm usually found behind the scenes directing, writing, consulting, or coaching. At 18 I attended the presti

Joanna
Many years ago, I had the pleasure of TEACHING and directing my lovely Sarah in two different community musical theatre productions: "Cinderella" and of "Huckleberry Finn". Sarah's integrity and determination for learning her speaking parts and her vocal solos truly sparked the driving energy amongst the members of the entire cast and crew. Her enthusiastic approach and bubbly personality are to this day so contagious and positively affects everyone around her, like ripples in a pond. Sarah is now a super mom and inspiring teacher as she encourages her students to achieve their greatest thespian potential. I highly recommend Sarah as an ideal teacher, drama coach and acting director.
Nichelle
Sara was extremely helpful and made my time working with her in college as easy as it could be. She is encouraging helpful and a pleasure to work with
Shari
I had the pleasure of working with Sarah during college when I was involved in the drama department. She is a talented director and gifted in the art of theatre!

Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History

If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action. Most people think of this approach as "becoming a character," and some actors do take that literally, pretending to actually be the person they're playing.  Method acting is taught everywhere from Hollywood to Broadway. But a few notable actors are well-known for taking it to award-winning extremes, making enormous …
