american academy of dramatic arts (Theater)
My name is Desiree and my love for acting has been developing for the past 20 years! The human voice brings words to life. With our voice we can color, inspire, inform, teach…The list goes on! I strive to find my true voice and I wish the same for my students. Your true voice can be heard in everyday speech, boardroom presentations or on stage.
I began by search for my true voice in high school. There I was a member of the National Forensic League, where I competed and placed in several speech and debate tournaments. After high school I began working as a pre-school teacher. While working with children from ages 3-10, I found my love for teaching. I love working with children, their energy is contagious. After spending two years teaching, I moved to New York to study acting. In New York I participated in several intense workshops with speech and diction professors. After graduating from school I found that I had an abundance of learning material and I can’t wait to share it with you.
I am so excited to share with others, the knowledge that I have gained. I want to motivate my students to express themselves in their work. Everything that you do has your essence attached to it. Let’s not let it be hindered my fear or insecurity. Let’s express freely, let’s live freely!
I have taken numerous courses on diction and over the past couple of years I have compiled a fantastic resource library.
I have competed in several speech and debate championships.
I studied yoga at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I have also studied how physical and emotional tension effect the voice and breath.
I received an Associates of Arts degree with a concentration in theater.
More than anything, I want my students to feel free to express themselves, to live freely in their body, and to leave each class feeling as if they have grown. Please feel reach out if you have any questions.
