It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

I have spent nearly my entire life deeply embedded in the Irish Dance community. I danced for over 10 years competitively and have siblings that performed in Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. My brother is an adjudicator and former teacher/owner of his own dance school. While I do not have those credentials, I can teach you the basics and connect you to great dancers.

I have only been working with Liza for 3 months, and in those three months I have grown so much. My acting comes out in my songs, and I feel ready for all the auditions I have coming up. She really digs into what character I’m trying to portray. Our lessons are always a safe environment and she is always very supportive and encouraging. Overall, Liza has not only helped me ready for my auditions but she’s taught me to have when I perform.
Naoko
She was the best instructor ever! I already had an experience as a vocal in a band, but through her voice training I actually was able to extend my voice range. Also as a non-native English speaker, I found it very helpful when she guided me with more accurate English pronunciation of the lyrics.
Yasmina
Liza is a wonderful voice teacher! She is always open to exploring her students' interests and is very encouraging. She is incredibly enthusiastic and is an absolute sweetheart. I would definitely recommend working with her!

Motivating and inspirational teacher. Fawn truly helped me step up my game as a real estate agent. We worked on my speaking pitch, approach, honesty, believability and listening skills which all worked like magic. Thank you Fawn

Fawn works at the perfect pace, not to slow and not too fast. She keeps you motivated and helps you through challenges and hurdles. Brilliant teacher.
ST, on broadway
I remember being blown away after my very first lesson with Fawn. I learned more in that one lesson than I ever did in 6 months with my other vocal teacher here in NY. ONE LESSON! I thought it would slow down from there, but it hasn't! Every lesson I leave a bit better, a bit stronger, more knowledgable and it is exciting now to be a vocalist! I realize before all those years with other teachers I was a novelist. NOW I AM A BONAFIDE VOCALIST! I was also skeptical of online vs in person lessons, but Fawn doesn't skip a beat! I can't wait to continue growing on this journey with Fawn.

"Have you ever felt total comfort with someone while doing an uncomfortable activity? A feeling of trust so strong that you ignore your insecurities and just do what they're helping you to do? Become so oblivious to your insecurities because of the sheer wonderment you have at how good this person is at helping others?

That's lessons with Natalya.

I'm an awkward, gangly guy. I had zero dance experience. I was so afraid to start learning how to dance.
When I started with Natalya, it was comfortable and fun from the get-go. I had no problem shedding my various anxieties about flailing my long limbs around in a rhythmic motion to the beat of random pop songs. She just, gets it.

Hire her. Take lessons from her. Find that new life skill through her artistic teaching abilities that you never knew you had.

That whole "if I can do it, you can do it" cliche is real here, with Natalya's help.

She's breathes teaching and you'll soak in her incredible ability to help you become something greater with each lesson."

5 Dance Basics to Nail Down

Watching people dance can be both inspiring and intimidating. Their graceful movements and the fluid transitions between steps can make you want to dance while making you feel extremely self-conscious. Something you should know is that there are very, very few people who look this good when they first learn how to dance! Taking dance classes and private lessons are the perfect way to learn dance basics without the public exposure. Regardless of the type of dance you are interested in, the …
