Darren is a great teacher. I enjoyed the class.

Darren is an incredible acting Coach. I couldn’t recommend him higher. He goes so above and beyond with his time, his care and investment in you as an actor, his amazing guidance and how to truly delve deep into a character and a scene. Before I started taking with him, I was ok as an actor. Once I started working with him, I started getting callbacks and booking jobs and really started to grow and reach my full potential as an actor and I began to feel very confident about my abilities. If you take lessons with him, you will be so happy you did!!

It was such a pleasure to have my daughter working with Darren. He instilled confidence in her, taught her how to prepare herself to be an actor, and provided her with opportunities to show off her craft. THANK YOU! Darren for your time, help and support of our budding angel!! You are The Best.

I have been teaching dance for over 10 years. In that time I have found that, regardless of what style you are learning, everything is made of a few fundamental principals and components specific to that style. There are only so many ways you can move your feet and body. By understanding these principals & components, you can then put them together in any order with different style to create different dances. By laying the proper foundation, students have an easier time following choreography, learning to apply their own style, and even keeping up with a class. Once a dancer has a foundation to work up on, I introduce new concepts in layers to help dances feel better and develop a nicer aesthetic.

About Sasha

To whom it may concern:

I would like to recommend Alexa Almaz for any teaching experience that she may wish to pursue, as well as any classes that she may wish to teach. I have found her to be an excellent teacher for adults. She knows her subject very well, has materials that are relevant and in support of the lesson that she has planned for the class. Her knowledge of the subject indicates that she has a thorough understanding of the subject matter in addition to personal experience. She is punctual and thoroughly professional.

Alexa demonstrates enthusiasm and concern for each student who is seeking a different or new path. She will be an asset for any position that she may seek to explore
