Each student that comes for class receives my undivided attention and I am able to bring out the best in a students abilities. Acting can be more challenging than one might imagine. Four instance you may be asked to play some villanous roll and accessing such emotions within yourself could be difficult, even painful.

It could be stage fright or a fear of failure or not be able to access emotions that are the basis of outward expression which is acting. As an acting teacher I will provide techniques to clear ...
