About Alexis D.

Close

Learn to let your character shine on stage or screen! Through improvisation, script analysis and the study of monologue materials, students are introduced to the fundamentals of performance. Special emphasis is placed on exploration of characterization, motivation, and transition. Elements of Alexander Technique will be introduced to help students gain a kinesthetic awareness of self.

Students are able to tailor their lessons to their chosen acting field. If stage acting is the area of study, lessons will focus on proper stage presence, projection, and elements of theatrical acting. If film acting is the area of focus, students will learn to manage micro expressions, the importance of minute changes in body and posture, and hone the ability to "do it exactly the same", and essential skill for film actors.

My daughter has been taking voice lessons with Alexa and we have been very happy, as she has improved a lot. I was only able to select one area under “subject” above so I selected “singing”; she works on several areas such as performance, has helped my daughter with audition preparation, fundamentals that she needs for her school chorale program, etc. Alexis is talented herself, very personable, easy to work with, and flexible. My daughter’s previous teacher left her (moved) with no warning and we found Alexis. It turned out to be a blessing as she is wonderful!!

Lisa is very outgoing and entertaining. She is encouraging Ali to be braver/less timid when singing and acting...this is exactly what Ali needs. I appreciate Lisa's positive attitude. I would like to split each session into 30 minutes acting and 30 minutes singing. I think both disciplines could reinforce the other. If that seems to short maybe we can move to 1.5 hours.

Everyone is different which means that everyone’s career will take a different path. That is why I not only offers actor coaching, but career coaching; resume/headshot review, where to submit, protocol before and after the audition, how to self-produce your own work, and anything else you may need or want to know.

I love working with students and finding what works for each individual. Actor training is amazing for public speaking, critical thinking and problem solving. I love watching my students grow and expand.

First and foremost, I'd like to hear your objectives for your lessons so I can structure each time to suit your goals.
For advanced/intermediate students, we may be working on monologues or sides you've been sent for an audition (looking for specificity and strong, clear choices) or selecting materials for your audition package for colleges or general auditions.
For beginners, we may work on gaining confidence speaking publicly, diving into characters, and working with text to tell stories.

About Carissa
Hi! I'm Carissa, a working actor and playwright, and would love to work with you on your craft! I grew up heavily immersed in the arts from a young age. For Middle School and High School I attended one of the top Performing Arts schools in the State of California, where I was able to take classes such as ballet, tap, jazz, acting, and playwriting daily. After that, I earned a spot in, and graduated from, the BFA Acting program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. After taking a year to work professionally in theatre and television, I moved to Ireland to earn my MFA in Playwriting from The Lir Academy (an affiliate school of London's RADA). Teaching has been a big part of my life, from private study to running theatre camps for kids. I'm well versed in the drama school audition trail and would love to help you prepare fo
r this exciting time! I also offer playwriting lessons/critique, and beginner lessons in dance (ballet, jazz, tap). I look forward to hearing from you!

Private Lesson Note:
In person is $60.00 for a 45 minute lesson.
Online is $50.00 a 45 minute lesson.

Hi Everyone.

I'm an acting coach. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.

Over the last 25 years I've coached many students for major network auditions via manager of agent referrals. What makes my lessons unique is that I also created original theatre with kids through improvisation. That fun approach is the core of everything I do.

I believe that if you start with who "you" truly are, with what makes you unique, you'll always be able to find your truth in any character or role. That's what will make your audition stand out. That's what will make you grow as an actor.

For those just interested in learning because you've never done this before and always wanted to... my lessons would be perfect! My youngest LA clients were 5 years old. For online lessons students must be at least an early reading level.

About Dawnnie
Hi Everyone!

I have a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from New York University Tisch School of the Arts, a BA in Drama from UC Santa Barbara. I've also attended Cal Poly Pomona, UCLA and New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts back when it was called the New York School for Film and Television.

I also create original theatre from improvisation with kids and teens. Everything I do I approach with that same fun spirit in mind.

Follow your passion and the rest will come. 🎭 As an actor over the last 25 years I have come to realize that none of us is ever actually in competition with one another. We are only in competition with our own best selves. We are each unique and have unique talents to offer the world that begin with your own unique core. No one else is “you.” So dare to follow your creative dreams. Let us continue to buil
d one another up.

A little shout out to creative parents! I have a toddler and with her in mind I have opened my own acting studio, Tehachapi Academy of Dramatic Arts. It's my way of sharing my many years of experience with other artists and students while staying close to home with my little one.

Tehachapi Academy of Dramatic Arts (TADA Acting Studio) MISSION:
We’ve seen firsthand how dramatic and creative play can increase confidence, team building skills, vocabulary, and much more at every age from kids to adults. Even those not seeking a professional acting career flourish in whichever path they choose partially due to their creative beginnings.
Our mission is to be part of that creative growth in any way we can.
