Dawn helps the reader interpret the material through script analysis.

When the actor learns what these tools are, they are not only able to comprehend the scene, but also bring it to life.

What Actors Have Said About Dawn’s Coaching
Dawn is the most supportive, positive person I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She is very enthusiastic and I swear that I learn just as much from watching and listening to her speak as I do from her coaching. Dawn has opened my eyes to so many things I never would have thought about in acting, from motive, to pace, to meaning. All of Dawn’s criticisms are positive and constructive, and after each session I feel as though I’m a better actress than I was before. She is very organized as well as incredibly kind and thoughtful. Dawn has played a huge part in convincing me to pursue acting as a career rather than a hobby, taking me a step closer to achieving my dreams. It’s been marvelous working with and getting to know Dawn, and I look forward to many more coaching sessions with her!
