TESTIMONIALS FROM STUDENTS
"The growth I have had working with Sancia has been immense. She has this acute ability to not only get to the crux of a scene but find all the layers in-between. I am grateful for her direction, vast knowledge, contagious joy and for employing a myriad of ways to work and play a moment. If you have the opportunity to work with Sancia I highly recommend doing so. Looking back at all the footage I cannot believe what a few weeks with a wonderful mentor can achieve!"
"Even though we had a very, very, very short amount of time I still learnt a ton of stuff and I’m super grateful for how intense you were because I think I wouldn’t have learnt as much if you weren’t!! You’re super fun to work with and you’re so kind and you always keep the ball rolling- I really appreciate that we always keep moving forward and mistakes are just a tiny trip in our step to walking to success. Thank you for teaching not only screen acting and making clip galleries, but also how to take care of ourselves. We’ve only met up 5 times but I feel like I’ve known you forever!!! You’re a genius and a legend!!!! I hope we get to work together again!!
"It is a pleasure and a privilege to work with Sancia, and I could not recommend her more highly. She is an absolute expert at creating the sort of space that is conducive to producing your best work - a space that is not only safe and comfortable, but genuinely joyous. She is warm, intuitive, knowledgeable. deeply caring, and her love for actors, artists and the craft is evident in everything she does. I have been so lucky to work with her, and am immensely grateful for her wisdom and passion."
“Sancia is truly an amazing acting teaching. Through her engagement of the class she motivates and encourages all students including myself to step out of our comfort zone and act roles that we aren't used to. Sancia herself has also provided a lot of support in helping me get out and break my shell of repetitiveness in humour and expand to a more serious form of acting rather than always satirical. Sancia's ability to demonstrate and always assist any student after class in need is also very inspiring due to her warm nature further motivating and inspiring students to pursue and break their comfort zones.”
