"Out of all of my experiences in singing and choir, Ms. Corey has by far been the absolute best. She definitely knows her craft, and after working with her
you will feel extremely improved (no matter where you currently stand). Since having her class I feel like I've become a stronger singer, in both style and technique, and I saw significant changes in my range. And don't try to sell her off as a stereotypical choir teacher: she's funny and incredibly kind to her students, and your progression is truly her personal interest. It may be strong to say, but to me, she's anyone's best option."

"My experience with Monica was amazing! She knew exactly what she was doing. She always put my opinion first, asked me what i wanted to do, what i was conf
ortable with and with only those things she made such beautiful and incredible dances. She taught me my dances for my quinceañera and everyone loved it. I 100% recommend her she's so much fun, nobody ever stressed throughout all the practices, she took everything slow and everything at its own time. Nothing was hard for me because she took the time and patience to teach me everything I had to know. Again, 100% recommended you won't regret it!"

"We had such a great time with Briana! I surprised my boyfriend with a Hip Hop dance class for our anniversary and Briana made the afternoon so much fun. I
am not a dancer (at all) and she was able to get me out of my shell and moving to the music in no time.
Our appointment was a 60min session and we both felt that was a perfect amount of time for us. Briana also included a warm up and cool down which both of us appreciated.
Briana, was also very flexible in terms of appointment time, song choice, and choreography. If there was a move that wasn't feeling quite right or a step we couldn't master she would change up the steps or patiently walk us through the movement again.
We had such a good time we will be booking with her again soon!"

"Eliza is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and patient ballet teacher. She has taught company class for my professional ballet company, and was well received by
the other dancers. Her classes are technical and she adapts to the level of dancers in the studio. I would highly recommend Eliza for a ballet teacher in a private or group setting."

"Mr. Miller is an extraordinary teacher, mentor and communicator. His ability to engage, motivate and challenge young people is highly regarded. He enco
urages students to find their own voice through acting and public speaking. I have known him to support, guide and inspire students throughout high school and college; and in all areas of life. Mr. Miller is a phenomenal individual."

Review by Ignacio
"David Robinette is, without a doubt, one of the most influential and inspiring acting coaches that I ever had. The things I learned from him had (and stil
l have) a great impact on my life and my career as an actor and director; and not only because of the technique and skills that I was able to develop with him but, most importantly, because he made me realize what my true potential was.
I met him in a time of self doubt, when I most needed to find inspiration and a meaningful reason to continue in this (sometimes) crazy world of the show business. He provided the necessary guidance to help me find my voice back again.
He goes beyond the technique to get to the very core of things. His methods sometimes are unconventional and bold; which is both freeing and refreshing, because he has an extraordinary sense of humor and because he works hand in hand with you without judging, accompanying you along the journey as a friend, as a fellow actor. An actor with an extraordinary keen eye and very unusual sensitivity and commitment.
I find this to be very important, because it opens you up to the work and to the material in a way that would not be possible at all otherwise. I found joy, and confidence, and boldness in my choices as a result of this.
It is common knowledge that It is easier to work with great actors: they can react to everything that you give them, let it affect them in a truthful and organic way, and then give something back to you in a way that genuinely affects you. They just make your work easier and fun and meaningful; and they make you look good. It works the same way with great acting coaches, because they manage get to the best part of your artistic self. It is inspiring and freeing and a joy. Some people have the talent to inspire all those things, and David is, without question, among the very best."
