I had been curious about what film actors experienced in the process of making movies - so in my early thirties I enrolled in a Meisner technique acting class. That led to hours, months, years of classes, workshops, reading, watching, listening, experiencing, working, and at long last understanding what it takes to be a good film actor. While I'm no Meryl, Frances, Jessica (I could go on and on) I can at least tell you what they are doing. It's a talent and a skill and it's a beautiful gift to the world at that level. I simply attempt.
Always been a dancer -
first in my living room, then in classes (every kind
a person take), then in a ballet company and in shows.
Then I taught everywhere I could teach, choreographed every song I was inspired by, and tried to build a professional dance school.
Then I burned out.
But THEN I started choreographing for bankers at TD Bank and making a movie and recovered from the burnout.
Now I choreograph for the love of music and people.
