Hello Lovely future students!!! I am a professional actor, dancer, choreographer, director and a Texas state certified educator! I have taught nearly every subject in public schools from grades k - 12 as well as acting, musical theatre, dance and voice at the college level! I attended both SMU and TCU, graduating with a BFA and MFA in Theatre performance, dance, radio/tv/film production and Criminal Justice!
Acting students can expect to improve each week in their character development, technique, script analysis and realistic performance abilities. We will also explore theatre spaces, prepare for auditions and determine specific physical warm ups designed for the individual student to assist in releasing tension. I strive to help all students perform at their highest level and obtain professional opportunities!
Dance students can expect to learn technique styles and combinations in accordance with the style of dance we are learning. Students will experience various forms of dance, warm ups and physical conditioning. We will practice technique as well as audition and dance call preparation. It is a goal to assist to students in their craft and guide them to achieve their personal goals within dance -whether that be stage or commercial dance!
Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.
Academic students can look forward to a fun learning environment, honing in concepts from their subject in a unique, non lecture style. I am an incredibly hands on teacher and love to incorporate technology into my lessons!
While the arts are my passion, a well rounded academic student is a must! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better performer!
Amanda has a true love for kiddos and a creative spark you can't deny! She helped my son gain confidence as an actor and truly inspired his natural talent.
Thanks Caitlin learned a lot and is doing much better in her performance now.
