“The two people that taught me to be creative, believe in myself, take chances, that anything you set your mind to is possible if you do the work, were my two acting teachers. After being in front of the camera and on stage for most of my life, my heart was craving more. I wanted to give back the knowledge and techniques I learned and hopefully one day inspire my students the way my teachers influenced me. Acting is not just about becoming famous, it’s about finding out who you are, making lasting friendships, and forming a strong work ethnic that you can carry on in any career path you choose.” ~Danielle
