Hello! I am Bianca LaVerne Jones. Your acting coach.
Seeking guidance in your acting and are sure you need some technique with a skilled professional? As well as someone who knows the business? Great! I am your woman.
I direct and act. Currently directly new plays but am a classically trained actress. I received my directing training in London at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. I received my acting training from UNC School of the Arts, SUNY Purchase and Yale School of Drama.
I aim to meet you where you are in your training process and help you develop the skills to do script anaylsis, scoring, and aid you in taking your work and putting it into your body.
It is fun and challenging!
Let's get to work.
What I love about what I do is helping artists reach their goal or get the callback. It is a heart to heart connection from the playwrights imagination to the actor's choices. I love the process and the journey.
I also enjoy expanding what I know through text. You and I will get the opportunity to continue to learn as grow.
She gave good feedback that allowed me to look deeper into the script. She was honest but encouraging with everything she said. She gave very specific directs thst helped me stand out in my audition. I would recommend her to any one who wants to have a great audition!
I had to make an audition video for a feature film and called Bianca to coach me through the sides and help with the video. She was very hands on and gave me really great insight about the scene and my physicality in front of the camera. I felt confident in the scene after our work session, plus she shared gems I can use the next time I have to self tape. I didn’t book but I was on hold for a week!
HI THERE! My typical process for working with a new student is to see and understand through verbal conversation, your previous training, where you feel your strengths and weaknesses are and to measure a plan to give you balance. We would then discuss your goals and/or upcoming auditions and diligently make a plan to have you do your best work in the room.
