TOYA N. Dallas, TX

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2006 and my students are working professionally! I also direct theater productions, and can help raise you to the talent level casting directors expect at auditions. My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools, and better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

About TOYA

I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los Angeles, where I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to Europe, Mexico, South America; then back to New York City, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School. I currently work professionally as an actor, singer, and TV and radio host. I've been fortunate enough to work in film, TV, theater, musical theater, hosting, commercials, improv, and voice-overs. I am also a vocally trained mezzo-soprano. Because I am ...

We are three lessons in, and I've come to understand more about acting and how I fit into it personally than I ever have even after several decades of participation. The lessons are useful and enjoyable, the homework is fair, and I think you should take advantage of the fact that you can just simply sign-up, pay a lil' money, and have access to such a great mentor/teacher!

John challenges me to drop everything I "think" I know, calls me out on my bs, and breaks me down to get to my essential me--the point where I really am present, feel, and love. On top that, his training in voice and body allow for the work to be done safely.

On a personal note, I consider John to just be a thrilling person to work with, and a mentor in my life.

Donald R. Dallas, TX

About Donald

I have established myself as an accomplished actor and acting coach who has been teaching acting classes for over 10 years. As acting is an ongoing learning process, I audit the classes of the best coaches from NY to LA to bring those acting techniques to my students online as well as my in-studio classes. In addition to teaching online, I have taught in-studio classes at Kids International in Washington DC, Take 3 Talent and Product Management in NYC, and Page Parkes School of Acting in Dallas to name a few. My approach to acting covers the entire theme of "Show Business". The "Show" is represented by the skill training techniques involved in my training to give an actor the skills to be the best actor. The "Business" aspect reflects the more technical side of acting such as what ...
