About this pro

I am a very long-time, very experienced Actress (stage, including National Tour with the Broadway Shows "HAiR", and "LET MY PEOPLE COME", and film and TV - currently working on Apple TV Series "SERVANT"), Singer, Comedian, Celebrity Impersonator and TV & Radio Host. From the moment I realized my initials were "HAM", I knew I was destined for a career in show business. In addition to my lengthy and varied performance career, in order to keep myself fit to do my gigs and to help others maintain the stamina and energy required to be a professional performer, I became a Certified Personal Trainer and Zumba Instructor. As such, I have worked with all ages and types, and have had significant success in working wth people with intellectual and physical disabilities.

I have always believed and preached that 'If you find something you love to do and do it well, you will never work a day in your life.' Now, this is not to say that I don't work hard. The thing is that I love what I do. I have the privelege of going to fabulous events and being on film sets (to which I probably wouldn't have otherwise been invited).  I get to make people laugh, forget their troubles and help them escape reality. I get applause and praise. And I get paid for it. Bascally, I have fun for a living.  Life is good!

    Hi Helene, What can I say????What a FABULOUS party last Saturday night and only because of you. The guests were blown away at "Cher" and thought your show was over the top! It certainly made for a most memorable Birthday Party and I can say with certainty that it wouldn't have been a party without you performing. Thank you again! Let's keep in touch, Michelle Rivara February 16, 2008 I saw the real Cher three years ago. You (Helene) were better!

    Please feel free to send this to everyone or anyone who may be considering hiring"The (almost) Cher Show". I can't thank you enough for the exceptional job that you and your staff did in making our corporate Christmas party a huge success.Our employees are still talking about it and will be for a long time.Your entire team as not only courteous, professional, reliable and easy to work with, they were just plain nice, friendly people.On a scale from 1 to 10, the entire show was a 10. Your performance and routine was remarkable as well as your interaction with the guests.It is uncanny the resemblance you have to Cher, and your singing voice is truly amazing in her likeness. I really can't say enough about how much "FUN" it really was.Hope to work with you again in the future. Thanks again!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We start with an interview to find out what the prospective student is looking to do, whether it be to pursue a career in film or stage, or simply to become a more confident and competent public speaker and communicator. We will then get to work on taking the steps and doing the exercises to hone skills, improve communicative ability and to help the student achieve his/her goals.
