Private Acting Coaching with Dina:

Want to turn your good on-camera or stage auditions into great professional auditions, more callbacks and bookings? Need material and direction for your Performing Arts High School or College auditions? I will give you the edge to succeed! I combine my Harvard ART and DeSales University Training with twenty plus years of auditioning and working as a Professional Actor into each session. I understand how to help you find your truth in each audition; specifying intention, characterization and moment to moment physicality. Private Coach with me, and you walk out of your auditions feeling confident and proud.
