Dalia is honestly my go-to acting coach. She is effective, talented, funny and fair. Regardless of what I am rehearsing, and no matter how nervous I might be, she always knows how to make me feel comfortable. I struggle with stiffness and nerves in the audition room, and she has a great way of shaking those nerves right out and giving me concrete goals to focus on. She gets me out of my head and into the work. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Dalia was very insightful and detail oriented with my work. She made sure I found intention behind each line, which got me more confident with the monologue.

I was nervous before my first session with Dalia, but as she saw my acting skills, she worked with me on different acting tactics and techniques as well as understanding what was happening during the monologue. She also encouraged me while I was rehearsing the monologue. So far, I have only had 1 session, but it exceeded my expectations. I can't wait for my next sessions with Dalia.

Dalia is excellent at working with anyone. She will meet you where you are and together you can find the journey of the scene, monologue, play. Dalia uses friendly language fabulously to describe highly complicated subjects. Dalia is great- I highly recommend

Dalia is a complete joy to work with. I come to her anytime I'm preparing for an audition. She make it so fun and makes you feel so comfortable that any nerves you may be experiencing just evaporate. She is able to see the bigger picture when working on a monologue/scene so the result is really detailed work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to up their audition or acting game, because she really knows her stuff!
