I believe that each student’s creative process is unique and should be nurtured as such. My goal is to foster a fun, supportive, and safe environment, that provides students a space to challenge themselves, master new skills, and grow –– not only as artists but as humans. I strive to create a dynamic space where young performers can develop their acting and writing skills – while discovering their creative voices.
