The sessions exceeded my expectations. My anxieties melted away with Serena’s personality, calmness, and thorough teaching style. It’s a real genuine experience. Serena brings innovative and natural techniques that would serve well to anyone who wants to better themselves in singing, artistry, or simply picking up healthier activities to make them more well rounded individuals.
Luba K.
Serena taught my 8 year old son for 9 beginner lessons. The scheduling did not work out for us to continue.

I loved her teaching style! She is calm but also fun for the boy. He loved the warm up exercises. In only 30 minutes of class they were able to play several little pieces. My son could then practice and master them at home. That gave him a sense of accomplishment. This approach is better than working on a hard piece and being frustrated. She focused on sight reading from the start instead of memorizing which is a great habit.

Serena is very knowledgeable and super helpful with my daughter' s audition prep. Highly recommend!

My goal is to help students who are looking to inspire a love for dance, grow in their technique, and seek one-on-one attention in their craft.

For the beginning student, I love to be abel to help them explore what dance means to them, figure out practical steps, and engage with expression through their body movement. For the advanced dancer, I focus more on improving technique and seeing their overall expression as a dancer cross the line from amateur to pre-professional.

My hope is to always hear the goals students have, partner with them in their journey, and create an environment that is both fun and inspiring for the future.

About Brittany

I have a passion for theatre & hopefully you do too! I will help my students become strong in improv, monologue & scene work. A packet will be given each week on things to work on & improve along with an assignment. I will require my students to learn a monologue a week excluding other assignments I give because building your repertoire is crucial in this career.

Jimmy C.

My goal is to provide children with a creative and fun outlet to express themselves. I create an environment that encourages self-expression without judgment. I encourage children to say yes, to listen and focus, and to shine their inner light! I share the fun and delight of improvisation using games, crafts, and music.
I also help teens and actors of all levels. My Improv for Actors provides insights into thinking and reacting with fluidity, exploring a character’s social status, using the voice and body as effective tools of storytelling, and more. Actors of all levels will soon be able to give a fresh, original approach to classic characters, create funnier performances in farce and comedy, and make dramatic characters richer and more believable. I approach improvisation as a tool for developing acting technique My lessons are applicable to contemporary and classic material and to both comedy and drama.

"I tried several other voice acting teachers on this site before I came across David. And I can say with absolute confidence that he is the best teacher on here. David is kind, helpful, and an incredibly down to earth guy. Most teachers throw you in expecting you to understand their methods like I'm some kind of savant. David however, gives you material but also tells you why he gave you the material. He breaks down the process. Also, certain teachers will coddle you and give you fake praise so you continue to buy their program. And i'm not saying David doesn't give praise. But he gives meaningful praise. He is honest about when I lack in a certain aspect and tells me how to improve, while also giving my positive feedback on the things I am doing well. If you are on the fence about this teacher stop. He is worth every penny. If I got to do it over again I would have chosen him first in a heart beat for twice the money. He has rekindled my passion for voice acting and is actually giving my real hope that I can achieve my goals of becoming a real voice acting soon. I can not stress enough how wonderful he is as a teacher and that anyone and everyone who has a drive to learn acting should take his classes. I am continuing classes with him, but even when I'm finished (eventually) I will never forget what he taught me. Thanks David :)"

Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels."

Careers in Acting: On Stage and Behind the Scenes

Directors, flymen, producers, actors, and even box office staff – there are so many options available to those who have a passion for the performing arts industry. All careers in acting for stage are linked by one thing: a shared love and appreciation for creating live theater. Because of the associated pressures, and long and surprisingly unsociable hours related to the industry, many people who maintain careers in acting do so because they love what they do.
