Very helpful, and beyond detail focused to get the most success out of someone.

Just wanted to update my review after taking a few lessons with Kristin. In addition to providing great yoga instruction, she's also been sharing these incredible explanations of how my body works (or isn't working right) that clearly come from a deep understanding of science and the structure of the human body. It is amazing to be able to both connect with the body and to understand how it works physiologically at the same time!

Kristin is incredibly skilled at Yoga - helping my form and deepening my understanding fo Yoga. I'm recommending her to everyone!

I tell people that I came out of the womb acting, dancing, and singing as these have and still are passions that drive my career as an artist. I went to a Flemish-speaking Kindergarten and Elementary school where we did a musical stage production each year. I am so grateful that my parents and maternal grandmother saw my gifting in the arts and put me in one of the best English-speaking private schools in Belgium that had a renowned arts program from 7-12th grade. I was in plays, musicals, drama classes, drama clubs, international theater festivals, voice lessons, dance lessons, received drama and music awards, and at the end of high school received an International Baccalaureate certificate in Theater. Then I went on to receive a Bachelor of Theater Arts with a concentration on acting and directing. I would love to coach/teach you or your child about acting on stage or for the camera. I can also teach/coach on improv, method, or Shakespearean acting. I am currently living in Los ...

Elise is a great teacher! So enthusiastic and patient. She worked with my learning style and created great interactive lessons each session! Would definitely study with her again!

Elise is an encouraging, enthusiastic and real person with a massive heart for the people she teach. Every time I have been around her I have walked away more empowered and inspired to keep moving forward. I can highly recommend her.
Stephen
Elise is a knowledgeable, professional, ethical, engaged, and helpful tutor. She has been especially helpful in the complexities of learning a new language and made sure I really understood complex grammatical rules and how to apply them. She is also personable, warm, kind, inviting, and really cares about her student's progress.

She was on time, well prepared and engaged in all our meetings. I learned a lot. So far she has been the best German tutor I have had. Cannot recommend Elise enough for language lessons!

I began acting in community theatre when I was seventeen years old. It is something that I am absolutely passionate about. I have been fortunate enough to play some of the characters that I love; Nellie Forbush in "South Pacific"; Anita in "West Side Story"; Eliza Dolittle in "My Fair Lady" and Guinevere in "Camelot," to name a few. I have also been in two independent films.

I will be teaching two group lessons, one on Monday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm and one on Tuesday nights 7:00-8:00 pm. Monday nights will be for children and Tuesday nights for adults. I will be welcoming up to five students in each class. During my classes we will learn different acting techniques, among them improv and Stanislavski's Method.

My 30+ years of experience in community theatre and what I have learned from teachers and other actors is what I look forward to passing on to those who are as passionate about acting as I am.

I've taken her class for over a few years now and I can't even describe how much I have grown because of her. I first was very mousy and quiet but I am now achieving and wanting to tackle songs I never thought I could because of her. I recommend her to everyone I know. In all seriousness people around me have noticed a huge change and there may be days where I don't notice it until she asks if I caught that I was able to hit it.

I love Miss Tina, She is the best singing instructor ever! She always knew the best songs for me. Hands down the best person and teacher. She has helped me over come so much with her help. She inspired me so much and has helped me evolve with my singing.

Liza is amazing! I am an adult who had never taken a singing lesson before so I was nervous to get started, but Liza totally made me feel at ease throughout. She is very warm and encouraging, and will also give direction to improve with every lesson. I’ve seen a drastic improvement since I’ve been working with her, and my friends and family have commented on my improvement as well. Definitely go with her if you can - she is the best.

"Nicholas knows Shakespeare and classical work. He really works with the text and helps an actor really understand the emotions in the scene, through the text. I've gotten so much out of his teaching and so have many of my friends. If you have an audition or play coming up, he's the one to get you ready for it! My friend nailed his audition, got the gig, all through his work with Nicholas. I've learned so much as an actor from Nicholas."

"Alexandra was my primary coach when I was applying to MFA Acting programs last year. She is the best! She was instrumental in my success at every step of the process: helping me to pick material, coaching me on how to highlight my unique skill set, preparing me for what to expect in the room, and even in-home coaching while I filmed a taped audition. She is insightful and clear in her instruction and the breadth of her theatrical training allows her to tailor each session to the specific needs of each client. If she hadn't already helped me get accepted to one of my top schools (where I'll be starting this fall!) I'd absolutely hire her again. I can't recommend her enough!"

"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."
