Introduction: (I am based in NYC but coach remotely everywhere) I TRULY CARE! Your success as an actor depends on many elements including training, acting ability, marketing, online presence, presentation, perspective and belief in yourself. You are a unique being who learns in a certain way and thrives in a certain environment. This is how I coach. These are the things that I can offer you. I recognize that every actor is different and I take the time to learn how I can best serve you. I get immeasurable pleasure from guiding an you to an "AHA" moment, or decreasing your stress level by coming up with a plan for success tailored to your needs. I'm a working actor so I have my finger on the pulse of the industry and I make it my business to understand it well so I can help you to navigate it. If you are a living, breathing human being, then you can do this. Acting is about authentically experiencing a human moment which we do every day of our lives, all day long. I find great joy in showing actors how to apply their own day to day behavior, experiences and emotions in service of their character. Acting training also teaches many life skills so even if you don’t pursue acting as a career, you’ll be able to take what you learn out into the world and thrive. I have an MA in Acting from Arts Educational School in London (Andrew Lloyd Webber is the chairman of the board), and 20 years of experience on the stage and on set. I care about people, and I care about their experience while evolving as a person and as an actor.

I felt incredibly comfortable training with Lana on our first session. She offered great resource material, gave constructive feedback based on my experience and made the session fun. I look forward to future training with her and feel honored to work with someone who understands the business of acting so well!

Lana has been amazing with my daughter, who started lessons with her about a month ago. She's incredibly sweet and easy to talk to and I know that's been a huge highlight for my daughter who is often shy when meeting new people. She looks forward to talking with Lana and I think it also means a lot to her that Lana truly sees who she is. I think a lot of adults forget what it was like to be a kid and immediately treat children like they can't handle regular conversation, but thankfully Lana is not like that, so she and my daughter have gotten along really well. I've also learned a lot from her when its comes to the whole business of acting and it was incredibly valuable. She's also super responsive, if I reach out to her I hear back from her usually within a few minutes. If you're thinking about booking with her, you should do it! She's got a great energy and I'm sure you'll learn a lot from her. Super glad my daughter found her! Definitely recommend :)

Lana is awesome! I feel like i’ve learnt so much from her already and I’ve only just completed my first class. She will not only coach you on acting but will also motivate you — she is everything an acting coach should be!!
