One-on-One Acting Class for Children (ages 6-18)
Is your child seriously interested in acting? I began my professional career at nine in the First National Tour of Les Miserables. At that time I wish I’d had a professional acting coach who was kind, encouraging, and helped me learn how to be in a professional rehearsal room- more advanced skills than what I learned in school or theater camp. I coached my eight-year-old daughter for her first professional audition, and she got the part!!! I would love to teach your child the advanced acting skills they need, help them gain more confidence, and prepare them for what to do when they get the role! (As well as how to cope and move on if they don’t...) I will offer your child the skills, attitudes, and information they need to perform at a professional level with confidence. We’ll have A LOT of fun while working hard and making our time together really count! Once you have registered, I will reach out to you to set up a time (or multiple times) as well as a Zoom link.
