About Nancy

I have been a professional actor for over 25 years. I have been in several TV shows as well as on Broadway. I have also been teaching acting, creative writing, playwriting for over 12 years as well as a Certificate of Completion in Drama Therapy.

I love the transformative power of the performing arts. I have worked with hundreds of students teaching acting professionally and as a way of breaking through barriers of shyness and debilitating self-consciousness. Acting is both a skill and a talent that can be developed to unveil wonderful enlightenment to the student about him/herself with great delight. One must remove those veils in order to achieve authenticity, which is the bedrock of a great performance. It is an art form with a myriad of subtleties and nuances all of which can be the difference between a good performance and a great one. I pride myself in being able to bring out the best in my students, some of whom have gone on to pursue professional careers as a result.

My techniques incorporate a mix of some of the masters i.e.: Meisner, Stanislovsky, Uta Hagen, as we develop the student's own organic method of creating "reality" for their specific character's life. It is serious-fun that will yield life long benefits whether you choose it as a professional pursuit in show business or to increase your confidence in any other field.
