I moved to Vancouver in 2008 with the hopes of becoming an actor. I didn’t know where to start. I found Debs class online back even before it was the Mecca of success and guidance it is now. I was immediately hooked by how involved she was with each student and how EACH AND EVERY class EVERY student was given the opportunity to grow.
Without her persistent effort to make me a better actor there is no way I would be where I am today. No way.
I don’t know how a coach can somehow take a personal interest in each of her students and cater to each of their individual needs and growth but Deb does just that. She has a passion and drive for this industry that is reserved normally for coaches of athletes and trainers. Her coaching style isn’t to “try and sound like a coach” by using fancy jargon or outdated methods but to get you where you need to go how YOU need to get there; to make you a more complete compassionate actor and more importantly, a better scene partner.
If you’re looking for classes and a coach that involve you in a community of good people, no ego, and a way to grow yourself exponentially, this is the class and coach for you.
Acting progression shouldn’t be counted by how much you work, I don’t believe in that, but that being said, I have never seen people go from “a rut” to “working actor” faster than when they join her studio.
It’s not magic, it’s effort and hard work and it’s something she instills in your soul, and then let’s you fly on your own.
I know this was supposed to be just a testimonial but the best testimonial is a thank you and that’s what this is, to the coach and mentor who changed my life.
Go to her class. Thanks Deb.
