"Before taking my high school musical theatre class, I had no experience with acting. I'd always sung in church but had never acted before. I never had anyone help me with my acting until I met Alyssa Fantel. When I got the role of 'Deloris' in SISTER ACT, I didn't know how to present my character. Alyssa helped me break down my lines to have a better understanding of what my character was feeling. Sometimes when you learn a new subject it can be boring, but with Alyssa it was fun and exciting! Working with her, I was so engaged by what she was teaching me, it was easy to learn different ways to strengthen my acting skills."

"As someone with a background in primarily dance, most of my experiences didn't require extensive acting training until my later years of college. I reached out to Alyssa for help with finding/training me on a monologue and I am absolutely thrilled that I did! Not only did she take what she knows about my personality to find the perfect monologue that resonates with me, she helped me connect with it from many different angles and gave me the tools to navigate them. It's intimidating to start working on a craft at what feels like a late time compared to most, but she made me feel like I didn't miss a beat!"

"I had the most amazing time working with Alyssa. At first I was very nervous but, as soon as she stepped in the door, I felt completely comfortable. It didn’t even feel like it was my first time meeting her. After going through my monologue for the first time she gave me some tips and tricks so my monologue would be more realistic, rather than sounding like I was reading from a script. Working with Alyssa made me feel so much more comfortable with my acting abilities than I had ever been. I didn’t expect that before meeting with her."
-Jessica B. (nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for the South Florida theatre awards)
"Working with Alyssa has been what I can easily say, one of the best decisions I have made for my acting career. I starting lessons when I was at a point in my life where I was completely doubting not only my abilities themselves, but also my future in acting. However, from the very first lesson my love for theatre and acting was reignited and any doubts I may have had disappeared. Not only did she offer invaluable advice in terms of college auditions and choosing schools, but she also sparked in me a new-found love of Shakespeare!! Any prior knowledge I had on Shakespeare and classical theatre was confined to the walls of school classrooms where I found myself disinterested and quite honestly, confused. That’s why I was so pleasantly surprised when Alyssa shed light on the profound beauty and meaning behind Shakespeare’s words and the musicality of it all. Now I find myself most eager to practice my Shakespearean monologues and talk to others about them. I owe that excitement completely to Alyssa and her incomparable teaching abilities."
