About Anita H.

Hello! I am excited to help you achieve your goals! Let me tell you a little bit about me. I have a BA in Theatre from the University of Tulsa. I am a Certified Teacher with over 30 years experience in several fields some of which are: Stand Up Comedy, Acting, Competitive Speech, Creative Writing, Slam Poetry, How to Market Yourself as a Creative, Stage Makeup, Voice Overs, Scenic Painting, Theatrical Lighting and Design and Line Dance. I teach private students as well as classes in schools and churches. Over the years I proudly guided many students to high achievements and awards in public speaking, acting and technical theatre. I have also helped professionals speakers up their game with confidence building and technique. I have had the pleasure to work with students with disabilities and have seen great results in performance with students having Asperger's Syndrome and ADHD. I enjoy performing at churches for a variety of functions and acting at local Theatres and local/national commercials. In addition, my husband and I teach Line Dance Classes for private lessons, group lessons, Team Building Sessions and Wedding Dance preparation. I also volunteer with the children and youth departments at my church and charity functions. Can't wait to meet you!
