Stephanie is an absolute pleasure to learn from. She is kind and competent and will very quickly have you at a level where you can comfortably dance on your own.

She is a genuinely nice person and takes the time to learn the way that you learn so that she can teach you in a manner best suited to the way you learn. I had so much fun in my first few lessons with Stephanie leading up to a trip where I wanted to be able to do some swing dancing with friends. On the first day I briefly outlined my objectives with her and over the next handful of lessons we achieved them all. I am so happy to I decided to move forward with Stephanie and look forward to being her student for a long time!
Erika
Stephanie is amazing. She is so sweet and patient and I highly recommend her and her class. She is very talented and knowledgeable for the advanced dancer and she also explains and demonstrates the dance steps in an easy to understand way for complete beginners like myself.

About Debbie

Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that

Joe is amazing when he gives vocal lessons. His examples are spot on. His ability to read into your strengths and weaknesses helps you to customise your lesson and focus on those aspects that'll give you quick and sustainable results. Thank you Joe.

So far my daughter is pleased and is looking forward to working with Joe. She has only had 1 lesson so far but it was smooth sailing and all went well.

As someone who was nervous and horrible at singing Joe made me feel comfortable and confident.

I have been performing magic for over 20 years! I first started learning from books, magic kits, videotapes, then dvds, online and from various magicians both locally and by attending magic conventions and conferences around the world. I wish I had found a teacher and mentor much earlier, it is a lot harder to figure out everything by yourself - there is so much content out there it becomes hard to navigate and sort the junk from the good stuff. That is where years of experience comes in - I not only teach you the mechanics and moves of the tricks the psychology behind it, what to say, and how to act - all part of the presentation learned from years of experience and hundreds of performances. I try to teach you magic with household items and objects you may already have or can easily obtain. The lessons are interesting and engaging, giving you skills to amaze your friends and family and building confidence and communication skills along the way. My students always have a great time ...

My lesson went extreemly well. The instructions and exercises were appropriate to my level of experience, and I think this is exactly what I need to move forward as rappidly as possible to becone a good vocalist.

Ms. Valyncia was an amazing coach. She was very patient , very honest and very professional. She pushed me beyond my comfort zone and I was able to improve my breathing, improve my range and put some personality into my performance. That was a long time ago but I plan on booking her again as my coach. I highly recommend her ! You will definitely become a better singer / performer when working with her , as long as you put the work in.

Introduction to Voice Acting: Books & Resources to Check Out

When it comes to the performing arts, voice acting attracts some of the most fiercely dedicated enthusiasts, despite the relative anonymity compared to acting on stage or on screen. In the old days, radio dramas were the most common inspiration for aspiring voice actors. Today, it’s animation. The key component of voice acting, even more than secrecy and seclusion, is versatility. An in-demand voice actor may be called upon to provide the pipes for a cartoon rabbit in a kid's show on Friday, …

What is Acting: A Deeper Look at the Craft

Hollywood actress, Rosalind Russell once said; “Acting is standing up naked and turning around very slowly.” Although meant as a joke, this is the best description of acting I have ever heard. At the core of acting, is truth and vulnerability. You cannot hope to be a successful actor without baring your heart and soul for the craft. But what exactly is the craft?  The History of Acting In order to truly understand acting, one must understand the history of the craft. And, what a history i …
