Teaching

In addition to working as an actor, I teach dance and acting to both children and adults.Kids_Dancing

PRIVATE LESSONS FOR CHILDREN

I teach private lessons to children ages 7+, in the areas of:

  • Audition Preparation: monologues, sides, songs, dance prep.
  • Voice & Movement: developing the actor’s instrument (speaking voice, physicality)
  • Dance Technique: jazz, tap, ballroom (swing, tango, rumba, merengue, foxtrot, waltz)
  • Song Presentation: acting through the song, connecting to the lyrics.

ENERGY TRAINING FOR ADULT ACTORS

I am a certified teacher of The Unlimited Actor (TM) method, developed by Nancy Mayans of the William Esper Studio.  I teach actors essential energetic tools to enhance confidence, sharpen performance skills, and create a more powerful presence.  We utilize a blend of movement, dance, vocalization and experiential/imaginative exercises.
