It's an amazing feeling when you find someone who is a master at the craft and can teach it too!

Shauna's previous extensive theatre training and instruction is UNDENIABLE. Because of this, she brings much more to the table than the average acting coach.

She made me realize there's SO much more than just breaking down a scene and creating a character. She made me think about where the character is going physically as well as emotionally, and why. I continue to grow and improve with each lesson with her. I'm so lucky to have found Shauna, and strongly recommend her to all actors.

With her tools and teaching techniques she guides you to the place where your voice is physically mentally and emotionally connected,able to work and produce results that every artist is seeking to accomplish-reaching the audience. She. Is kind, compassionate and makes you work hard all at the same time to get you to the place you need to be as an artist. Thank you Shauna! ♥️

Bgcheck Background Checked


I offer personalized private instruction in ballet, with each lesson tailored to your interest in technique, self-expressive style, and/or performance. I joyfully combine a well-trained eye for detail and a strong feel for the subtleties of mind-body connection with an ability to communicate them with sensitivity to individual physique, strengths, personality, and learning style. Relationship is at the foundation of instruction, creating a safe, supportive, respectful, encouraging atmosphere to grow as a dancer.

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.

It takes someone with nerves of steel to perform a monologue or an intense dramatic scene in front a paying audience. You will need to do more than just memorize words on a piece of paper. Learn how to connect your mind and body when it comes to working on a theatrical production. It takes longevity and respect for the craft to go through a full rehearsal process as well as a full run of a show. No one technique is right or wrong which is why we will work on a variety of them to discover what is best for you!

Very knowledgable teacher! Christian is patient with me as a beginner and has a great teaching method whereby he never tells you exactly how to perform a piece, as that is not what acting is about.
