The Elise Acting Standard
I tailor each class to the students needs and work with them to polish existing abilities and grow potential strong points. Because I teach acting, movement, dance, dialects, accent reduction, and voice for the actor--- I am able to build a lesson plan that assures growth and enhanced self-esteem in performance. I have almost 20 years of training and professional credits to reinforce the knowledge Ibshare with my students.
My classes are typically in-person. However, due to the current pandemic, as a precaution to myself, my loved ones, and potential/future students, all classes will be done virtually until further notice. I look forward and am working on providing a safe environment to get back to face-to-face classes.
I love seeing my students grow! But more than that, I love what I am able to learn from them. The joy of new talents is infectious and a wonderful reminder of why I do what I do.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
We first have a discussion as to previous learning experiences and what they hope to achieve. Then I do a series of excercises and questions to assess how to build the lessons according to their needs.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I hold a BFA in Theatre from New World School of the Arts College/ University of Florida. I have trained in musical theatre and acting for film and television. I am also currently still an active performer on stage and screen with years of voice acting under my belt.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Private acting lessons start at $60/hr. And payment is to be made bi-weekly (2 classes minimum, paid in advance) or monthly (4 classes, paid in advance). Pricing is based on 1 class a week. But negotiable if multiple classes are needed/wanted and on what the course work is. Pricing for Dialect and Accent Reduction varies.
What types of students have you worked with?
All kinds and ages! Including students who are simply pursuing classes as a hobby or to better their expression or public speaking and engaging abilities for other fields of work not related to the arts.
