I took dance lessons from Gigi with a focus on self expression and working through issues that I was holding onto on any particular day. I am 60+ years old and never danced before. Where my typical perspective of myself standing in front of a mirror is not positive, I somehow was transformed into seeing beauty. Gigi is a beautiful person, very patient , non judging. Her goal was for me to meet my goal, even when it changed from week to week. Sometimes we worked on dance technique, other times using movement to work through feelings. I loved it.
Anna Mayta
Working with Gigi during a challenging time in my life was an amazing experience, her empathy, her nurturing quality made my experience truly lovely. She finds inspiration for movement therapeutic work by what the students needs are. After my classes with Gigi I feel spiritually rejuvenated.

Wonderful and captivating teacher of meditation.

Shauna is an excellent teacher. She really focuses on proper technique and breathing to build a foundation before singing. I already felt and heard a huge difference in just four lessons!
Emma R.
Shauna is a Goddess of the Voice ! She offers years of voice experience in both singing and drama. She begins with simple yet very effective techniques to get the best out of your voice, and as you are ready she will offer more specific techniques depending on what you need as an individual. Shauna has the ability to see where you are blocked and to see your potential. This is so much more than a singing lesson.

Super. Shauna made it a fun, zero anxiety, beginning.

I've been a working actor for ten years. To me acting is one of the most visceral, healing and inspiring arts. It's an honor to invite people into that world and to help them succeed within it! My personalized training is for actors who are interested in or already have a career in TV, film and commercials. We will train in audition technique, self tapes, scene study and the business side of acting (casting, agencies, resume structure, demo reels, what to do on set, what to do in the audition room, website building and more).

Feel free to check out examples of my work on my site: jasonburkey.net or on IMDB.

I have spent nearly my entire life deeply embedded in the Irish Dance community. I danced for over 10 years competitively and have siblings that performed in Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. My brother is an adjudicator and former teacher/owner of his own dance school. While I do not have those credentials, I can teach you the basics and connect you to great dancers.

Preparing for a dance competition? Auditioning for your schools dance line or local dance team? Want to learn how to get in touch with your “inner sexy”? Or just simply need some dance therapy? No experience, NO PROBLEM! You’ve come to the right person!!
I have been choreographing dances since the age of 10. From putting on shows for my family at family events to working hands on with groups and individuals in preparation for auditions or shows. Through my wide variety of dance styles ( contemporary, modern, jazz, ballet, Majorette-Style, Hip-Hop, lyrical, and liturgical) as well as my creative innovation, I offer each dancer an eccentric way to express themselves through dance. “ if you can’t say it, DANCE IT!” Between reasoned connection (specific to the occasion), improvisational movement, and structural molding, dancing to express will have you looking YOUR BEST! So whether it’s that solo audition you need help creating, or a piece for a show, maybe you need to relieve stress &

Being trained by Miss Luckie definitely pushed me to a lot of limits that I hadn’t previously been pushed to. I was instructed very well; there was patience, positive feedback, and discipline involved. When preparing for auditions, I was extremely nervous, however, with the help of Miss Luckie, I learned to be confident and dance with much enthusiasm. She was there through every step of the way. I’m forever grateful for her because not only was she a coach, she was a mentor. It’s definitely an experience, being under her leadership and mentorship, worth having.
Lady Swortz
For my husbands birthday I wanted to surprise him at home with a romantic dinner and sexy “show”. I am not that experienced in dance but I wanted to show him a new sexy side. When I reached out to Jessica I expressed to her exactly what I was hoping to pull off and she EXCEEDED my expectations. As I stated I have little dance experience and she convinced me to learn the choreography in HEELS! All in all, she made me feel extremely comfortable and made it super easy and fun!! I will be taking more lessons with Jessica! Highly recommended!!
Shaundra
Jessica was a wonderful teacher and helped me really grow as a dancer without her bring there and really pushing me I wouldn’t be where I’m at today !

"I`ve been taking Shakespearean acting lesson with Michael for a month now and I am very satisfied with him and his method.
Although, I have much of prior acting experience, I was quite unfamiliar with Shakespeare´s plays, lofty language and his metaphors, Michael helped me get to the essence of it very quickly.

He´s a very reliable and effective acting teacher. He`s also punctual, always arrives on time with a plan of what we are hoping to achieve in each lesson. His clear and structured method of teaching enables steady progression.
I definitely recommend him."

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
