I train novices, pre-professionals, and professional performers. I work with many different levels of capabilities and therefore have a vast arsenal of explanations for teaching technique.
RATE RANGE: $75/HR-$125/HR plus studio cost.
I enjoy watching my students not only improve their artistic skills, but also develop self-confidence. The empowerment that comes with the self-confidence is a skill that my students can then bring to all aspects of their lives. One of my most exciting moments was helping a student prepare for an audition and then they booked a Broadway show!
Working with Kierstyn has made a tremendous difference in how I approach scene work and acting through song. I have seen an improvement in my callback rate and booked a National Tour with her help! Kierstyn makes written material come to life in a way that is specific and personal. Besides being a great theatre coach, she understands people, making her a natural mentor for all her students. She senses when to challenge them, when to explore something a new way, and when to encourage their efforts. Kierstyn does this all in a positive light, making it feel safe to step outside of your comfort zone. I highly recommend Kierstyn to anyone looking to gain more skill and confidence!
Kierstyn is truly one of the best teachers of anything, let alone ballet. I am an adult beginner, and Kierstyn makes all of the big concepts and little details clear and actionable. She is great at learning very quickly how *you* learn, and can adjust her style based on how well (or not well!) you know anatomy—she is excellent at using images to make mind-body connections. Kierstyn is fun and personable (and talented!!), but is also no-nonsense when it comes to authentic learning. Kierstyn's level of knowledge is super-impressive; you will be in good hands with her!
My pricing is on a sliding scale ranging from $75/hr-$125/hr plus the cost of a studio. (The price depends on what material needs to be covered. For example, coaching for a Broadway callback would be higher than a private ballet class.)
