This was my first time modeling in a show, and my overall experience was great. Tamika provided great feedback regarding walking, using modeling stance, posing, and how to have fun and interact with the audience. She chose awesome people to walk for her in the show, and we all got along really well. Tamika communicated professionally and respectfully to her models. She also provided all of the clothing for the show which was great because I did not have to come out of pocket to get additional clothing. I would suggest that she get an assistant to help her on the day of the show.

Private Improv Acting Teacher

Your craft is your difference, and I am here to help you supply your craft with the tools necessary to make your difference shine.
I am a graduate from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and currently pursue professional jobs to keep my craft fluid and stay up-to-date on current events. I specialize in warm ups, physical acting, audition training, monologues, improv, Meisner Technique, and Stanislavski’s System. I have 6+ years of experience in the professional acting industry and hope to bring you into the world of endless imagination!

About Shanee

Hey! Nice to meet you! First off, I would love to thank you for your interest in my professional acting training. I am a fun, vibrant and grounded professional actor desired to help you reach your goals in the performing arts industry. I am a graduate of the well-known American Academy of Dramatic Arts, as well as a writer, songwriter, and overall just an encouraging individual willing to push you beyond your fears and help you dive in pool of creation. I specialize in warm-ups, physical acting, improv, auditions, monologue practice, Meisner Technique, Lee Strasberg's Method, and Stanislavski’s System.

I follow five simple but important steps to my method of engagement in performing.
1. Explore
Explore your space. Rather it be on stage, in front of the camera, or just in your head; you must explore your space to find your comfo

rtable and tight places, as well as your obstacles and free spaces. The advantages of exploring first, is that you get a chance as the actor, to feel the area and build that fourth wall.
2. Ground
Plant your feet and your voice down and get grounded. Your being is an electrical source. Just like in a home, in order to use electricity safely, it must first be grounded. You must ground yourself in order to release the full potential of your power.
3. Listen
Listening is a key element in not just acting, but also in life. Listening doesn't seclude itself to just words. Listening involves, listening to your body, listening for queues, beats, moments and even silence! If you choose not to listen, your response will never be valid.
4. Act and React
Every action has a reaction. Your job as an actor, is to fulfill the role by acting and then reacting. You must learn specific techniques to appropriately apply to your acting and if you are following rule number three, reacting should be a breeze.
5. Trust your muscles
Trust that through repetitive motion and practice, that your muscles will do it's job and place your mind, words, and body exactly where it needs to be.

With these steps, the only thing left to add is discipline and creativity. I encourage my students to be themselves and be fearless in that. Without your difference in the world, there would be no change, there would be no story to be told, there would be no excitement. I challenge you to excite me and allow me into your space. Let's explore and create together!

I have been an actor since I was a toddler. I have been in the profession for about 18 years. I have been in several movies and several commercials. As well as tons of musicals and plays. I can teach you how to nail and audition, help you prepare a monologue set up your acting resume and much more. I cater to each of my students individualized needs. I want to make sure that my students have a great time so I like to make sure our lessons are fun. Be sure to shoot me a message if you think we would be a good match.

About Donia

I am a retired actress and vocal enthusiast. I have retired from going to auditions, and performing paid gigs after I moved to Flagstaff to earn my degree in Social Work. I have spent my whole life mastering acting and vocals. I have been in the acting/modeling business since I was a toddler and was with an agency for some time. I have been in several commericals and films and countless musical productions. I also was in a music production program called CMAS for two years. I have eight plus years of vocal training. I am classically trained and trained in performing musical numbers. As for acting I have twelve years of experience and was in the advanced acting class at Dearing Studio for two years.

Voice students can expect to improve their range weekly. To learn how to read music. Each voice is unqiue and special and I will aslo teach t

hem the proper skills and techiqunes that prevent vocal nodules.

Acting students can expect to recieve at least one new scene each week or until they have mastered the scene they have given. As well as how to prepare headshots and resume.

I have experience teaching students of all ages even adults. I want to make sure I cater to each individual preferred way of learning.

Respect for the Actor/Actress journey. I have been a professional actor for 15 years now with a strong focus on Television and Film. I currently recur as a Guest Star on the critically acclaimed series Better Call Saul. Other credits include Friday Night Lights, The Night Shift, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, Shot Caller, and many more.

My goal is to get you where you want to be as a performer, to continue to push you to use those muscles, because we are what we repeatedly do. Whether it is working on cold reading sides, breaking down the script, getting away from the nerves so "You" can shine, to the business of acting, adding life to characters with subtle nuances, I'd love to help you, it would be my honor.

"Improv Acting with Jessie

In January, I decided to take a last minute opportunity to apply for a job at Disney World over the summer. After doing some re
search regarding the audition process, I found out that there was a brief improv portion involved in the audition. About two and a half to three weeks before the audition, I found Jessie and booked four lessons.
What I received from my lessons was more than I could have ever hoped for. Jessie is an amazing teacher. She is very knowledgable, gives incredibly feedback and advice, and in addition to what an awesome teacher she is, she also is INCREDIBLY flexible and willing to work with your schedule."

"LK was great. She took me through several exercises, then gave me homework to do for my next class. She made me feel very comfortable. The reason I was wa
nting to take classes in the first place is because I am always being told that people cannot hear me when I talk. Also I have always wanted to take acting classes. Please let me know if you think this is the best class to take if I try to pursue Theater Acting, or Film Acting in the future.
Thank You, Laura Boys RPH"
