About Daniel H.

Last sign in: More than two months


Originally from Miami, Florida, born to Cuban parents, I first attended the University if Pennsylvania, where I received a degree in marketing and communications from The Wharton School, with a minor in theater arts. Upon graduation, I moved to Los Angeles and trained at the Tony-award winning South Coast Repertory. I was subsequently fortunate enough to attend the Juilliard School Drama Division, where I trained for 4 years in the following subjects: scene study, improv, physical comedy/clown, movement, singing, voice and speech. Some of my favorite productions while at Juilliard have been: Measure for Measure, Henry V, The Cripple of Inishmaan, Williams in Transit, Trust, and Balm in Gilead. In addition, I have also taught drama in several cities in the country and abroad, including New Orleans, Salt Lake City, Orlando, and even Antigua, Guatemala.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are designed for each particular student's need/desires. I tend to push students as I want them to not only grow as artists but as people. In fact, over the course of time, it is more important to use your art to grow into a sensitive human being, than it is to "win the Oscar" and be the "best actor out there." Much of what I do is meant for the student to bring a personal connection to the work.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room with seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide the prop(s) necessary for scenes or monolgoues.

*** Specialties ***
I am familiar with the Stanislavski method, clown techniques, Shakespearean text, Chekhov. In terms of the speaking voice, I specialize in the Edith Skinner method of speaking with distinction, and am familiar with the work of Arthur Lessac and Catherine Fitzmaurice.
