TESTIMONIALS

"I could not have been happier with Frankie as my acting coach ... I always felt prepared going into auditions with the scenes and monologues I worked on with Frankie. He created a safe space to create and play and opened up possibilities and approaches I would not have been able to do on my own."
—Kellie Liberto, Actress, Private Coaching Client

"I feel like Frankie legitimately gave me better control over my body and his both spiritual and scientific exploration of how we use our bodies helped me better understand so much about myself."
—Student Participant, Voice and Movement Class, Northwestern/NHSI

"The biggest thing I took away from this class is how to let go of tension in my body that is restricting to my performance. I found myself becoming more flexible and malleable by the end of class. My posture throughout the day is better and so this class not only helped me as an actor but as a person."
—Student Participant, Voice and Movement Class, Northwestern/NHSI
