About Courtney

My love of teaching comes directly from my love of what I do--which is, anything and everything theatre. Over the years, I've taught all ages anywhere from pre-K through professional adults. It is my firm belief that the performing arts is vital and beneficial to everyone for a myriad of reasons. Do you have a presentation coming up and want some work on stage fright? I'm your girl. Did your English teacher just assign a 10 page paper on Romeo and Juliet? Look no further. And I'm definitely an expert in anything audition related. I am here to provide you with skills and one-on-one training that can help with specific projects as well as generally make you a more well-rounded human. Studying the arts taps into a different part of our brains--the part that exercises creativity, innovation, and problem solving: all skills that the next generation of leaders need.

I graduated summa cum laude with two separate degrees in undergrad, and graduated summa cum laude with my terminal degree in graduate school, having also been awarded a Fellowship in my first year of study and the award for Outstanding Graduate Student in my last. But I also deeply believe in things you learn outside school as well, and so much of my artistic philosophy also has to do with using the study of theatre/art to make people the best and most successful humans they can be.

I have a BA in English, specializing in Dramatic Literature, from the University of Hartford. The combination of this degree with my MFA in Theatre makes me particularly qualified with anything involving analysis of fiction and/or plays/musicals. I'm a strong coach from all points of writing--initial analysis, brainstorming of ideas, construction of ideas, and proofreading for grammar and content.

My BFA in Music Theatre and MFA in Theatre: Directing provide me with a strong educational component of my craft. But I also have a great deal of professional and practical experience, directing and choreographing as a full-time professor for a number of years in addition to working with children from K-12th grades. I'm currently a full-time freelance professional director/choreographer as well, so my teaching comes from a continual practice and immersion in my art.

Whether your needs are directly related to a theatrical field or not, I'm here to provide you with a unique perspective on how to train your brain creatively!
