I tell people that I came out of the womb acting, dancing, and singing as these have and still are passions that drive my career as an artist. I went to a Flemish-speaking Kindergarten and Elementary school where we did a musical stage production each year. I am so grateful that my parents and maternal grandmother saw my gifting in the arts and put me in one of the best English-speaking private schools in Belgium that had a renowned arts program from 7-12th grade. I was in plays, musicals, drama classes, drama clubs, international theater festivals, voice lessons, dance lessons, received drama and music awards, and at the end of high school received an International Baccalaureate certificate in Theater. Then I went on to receive a Bachelor of Theater Arts with a concentration on acting and directing. I would love to coach/teach you or your child about acting on stage or for the camera. I can also teach/coach on improv, method, or Shakespearean acting. I am currently living in Los ...

Elise is a knowledgeable, professional, ethical, engaged, and helpful tutor. She has been especially helpful in the complexities of learning a new language and made sure I really understood complex grammatical rules and how to apply them. She is also personable, warm, kind, inviting, and really cares about her student's progress.

She was on time, well prepared and engaged in all our meetings. I learned a lot. So far she has been the best German tutor I have had. Cannot recommend Elise enough for language lessons!

As an actor for 14 years who became an award-winning director and screenwriter, I have a particularly well-rounded perspective on acting. My belief is that anyone can act, if given the right tools, and I have a proven track record -- actors who work with me are presently booking major roles in film and television. My philosophy is that acting is about exploring yourself -- who you really are as a human being -- and having confidence in that unique individual's perspective on the character. We will also use my expertise on the other side of the camera to explore how to work with directors, as well as the writer's viewpoint on the larger story. I look forward to setting your talents loose on the world!

About Zach

My work as an acting coach speaks for itself. Just in the past few months alone, actors I work with have booked their first jobs as a recurring guest star in a primetime television series, a lead in a Lifetime movie, and a role on an upcoming Netflix drama series. This is in addition to working acto

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

Julia truly wants to make sure you feel comfortable and prepared for your audition. She also just wants you to have fun. These qualities are phenomenal in a teacher and I could not have found someone more enthusiastic to help me and that I’m more enthusiastic to work with.
Tiffany Rivers
Julia has been teaching me for a while now and all I can say is that she is the best acting instructor I could ask for. She has taught me everything I know about acting and she is just overall a great person. Julia is super kind and makes me feel comfortable. I never got tired of the monologue we were working on, thanks to Julia. She is great with monologue work and teaches many different ways to do it. I definitely recommend Julia! :)
Maria
Julia has been helping me with my acting for a little while now and I already can see my own improvement! She always gives me tips, pointers and corrections during our time but in a way where I feel supported! Her constructive feedback is always helpful and she is so encouraging when I actually nail a scene. She recently helped me with a self tape and I have to say, with her guidance I think it was my best acting to date! I would highly recommend Julia!

This is not an easy task as my son has ADHD and can become easily distracted. She has given my son increased confidence and improved his acting chops. Sometimes he has off days due to his anxiety. If he is having an off day when he visits Kelly, she always manages to lift his spirits. He comes out of his lessons excited, happy, and full of life. Kelly has also made some great videos for us to share with family and friends. I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Kelly! We are lucky to have found her."
