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!

My son loves working with Anita. She is knowledgeable and makes learning fun. Anita is always responsive and prompt. Anita is always upbeat, friendly and positive. Couldn’t ask for a better teacher! 😁

These days it's rare to find someone who is as dedicated to their students as they are to there work. I was blessed to have Anita as an instructor. Not only is she knowledgeable and passionate about her craft she is also an active practitioner. Anita brough current and relevant experience to her classes and uses her talent to bring true value to the live of those she teaches. I can tell she was attentive to, and invested in my understanding and success. This is the one, you wont find one better.
