Instructor: Dixie Sedgwick is a critically acclaimed award winning professional actress and writer with a broad background in stage and film. Her love of acting is only surpassed by her love of teaching her craft to people of all ages.
Enjoying the growth of each student, no matter if they are extremely shy or bursting with confidence. These acting classes give skills necessary to be successful in life no matter what direction the student goes.
I have taught acting classes through DISD Dallas school district with Young Audiences of North Texas, Big Thought, DeSoto Classical Conversations Home school group, and my popular program, "Write Into Production" at North Richland Hills Cultural Arts Center, TX.
Private coaching available for film/stage auditions.
Our family has had the pleasure of working with Dixie through acting classes and a productions of 'A Christmas Carol'. Dixie is a wonderful teacher. Her passion for the profession and helping children develop their skills shines through. My 13-year-old daughter and 8-year-old-son have thrived under Dixie's direction. She is able to keep class and rehearsals fun and productive. Dixie has a great way of giving guidance in an encouraging and empowering way. We feel so blessed to have crossed paths with Dixie and her family and look forward to many more years of working together!
My goal is to create an enviroment where the student feels comfortable enough to take risks, get out of their comfort zone, for that is the only path to growth.
We do improv, scene study, monologues, camera techniques, learning to ask the right questions to create a believabe character, building moments all based on the Meisner technique, which is an inside out method.
I have worked as a professional actress in both film and stage for over 30 years. Working on both sides of the camera as producer/director/screenwriter and have had agents in LA, Seattle, Canada, and Texas.
