Specializing in the beginner, intermediate and advanced level training. I love acting, performing, directing and teaching and have been involved with the acting world since age 6! Studied theater in high school and at NTSU, have a B.A. Speech/Communications and Spolin Improv technique with Nancy Fine of Second City.
I believe basic acting skills help you in every day life to be more poised, confident and help hone listening skills. It is a true delight for me to see the "light-bulb" go off when a student fully grasps a new concept or idea.
I customize sessions based on the individual.

About Phil

Philippe (ILL_PHIL) Gonzales started dancing in 2000 through a friend who asked him to do a pageant talent show. Once he found the love for dancing he never looked back. Starting his own crew in 2009, Phil formed the most dynamic dance crew -- “FootSoulgerz Krew” -- to hit the Dallas scene. The Foo

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working professionally! I also direct theater productions, and can help raise you to the talent level casting directors expect at auditions. My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools, and better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

About Toya

I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los An

Improv is all about NOT SAYING NO and being fearless! A true actor should thrive on improv. It takes great skill to be raw and inventive on the spot. Improv is best taught in groups but one on one is excellent as well, especially for the beginner.

About Keith

I have been a professional performance coach and actor in Hollywood for the past 11 years. I coach and inspire the next generation of performers for stage and screen. My company is a performance arts company dedicated to educating and inspiring performers of all ages, including adults. Our lessons

Armando
Awesome overall. Very enthusiastic and extremely helpful to our son. Highly recommended.
Laura
Keith is fantastic! He expects the highest level of preparation and performance from me at all my lessons and thus pushes me to be a better performer every time. He tailors my lessons to exactly what I need - specific work for upcoming auditions as well as more general work to expand my repertoire. His lessons are also not not limited singing coaching - he also provides coaching in acting and movement. I feel like I have presented some of my best work to auditors as a result of working with Keith! And he does all this in the friendliest manner possible so that my lessons are always a great combination of fun, hard work, and inspiration.
Yi
Keith is a knowledgeable and great teacher. He will let you feel comfortable at singing and doing all the practices and make you realize what the correct postures and things needed to make you feel confident. Also, he is pretty easy-going with scheduling and just let him know in advance and he will reschedule the class for you. Definitely recommended.

I had a great experience learning how to belly dance with Breeana. She taught me for a few lessons and every session was an enjoyable experience. She was patient with me and she is very talented at what she does. I appreciate the time she took to help me to learn the foundations of belly dance until I felt confident. I would recommend her as a teacher!

"With a background as an actor, writer, and director, Zach brings so much to the table. He truly understands the actor's process, offering invaluable guidance and insight, and knows how to bring out an actor's most genuine, connected, and truthful work. His approach is broadened and strengthened by the fact that he deeply understands the anatomy of a script, and can break down the beats of a scene like no one else. I cannot recommend Zach highly enough."
