I'm Donnabella, a working actor in TV, FILM, COMMERCIALS, and VOICEOVER, and I'm excited to help you take your ACTING BUSINESS & CRAFT to the next level!

I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader! ***The ACTING Lesson*** Every lesson will be focused on your goals. Usually we'll work on a scene or 2 (I send real scenes from TV/Film!), and use different methods to get you Audition-Ready. We'll work on improving memory. We can also spend time on reviewing marketing materials like headshots and resumes, and other more specific techniques like improv or emotional accessibility.

I can also help improve the use of voice. ***My Cheerleading Background*** Captain- Seattle Preparatory High School Cheer Squad Captain- Seattle University Cheer squad Team Member- NBA Seattle SuperSonics Dance Team --------------------------------------------------- Need help with HOMEWORK?

Donnabella is an amazing teacher. Her wisdom and experience make learning so enjoyable and special. Every lesson leaves me feeling better than the last because she gradually makes me feel more and more comfortable in my own skin. She really is so so helpful!
