Louise is passionate about acting and believes everyone has the potential to access a limitless imagination, play, engage with others, and explore beyond their comfort zone.

“Louise went above and beyond the call of duty in making it accessible for anybody to try and to learn, not just about techniques, but the human interaction that serves the foundation of what acting is and what we innately do in these interactions. She was willing to give us additional information. The fact that she so obviously enjoys what she does and her dedication to it, really rubbed off on the class. She also pushed us out of our comfort zones, which was as informative and fun as it was eye opening! And she was funny. Very important.”
