"Nili is the audition coach you hope to find in this business. She always has amazing insight into the characters of a show and the material. She is patient, nurturing and provides a safe space to create. And when I walk away from a coaching with her, I' m100% confident of what I'm doing in the audition room."

-Nick Kohn, Broadway and Television Actor

(Avenue QJessica Jones, Person of Interest, Sneaky Pete, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

"Nili is such a wonderful acting coach. She provides an incredibly safe space for you to let go, step outside your comfort zone and grow as an actor. Her feedback is so in depth, detailed and helpful. She is genuinely the best of the best!"

-Claire Medinis, Actress/Dancer

(Royal Caribbean International)

"Nili was such a wonderful help to myself and my 11 year old son. We had no experience in the industry and she broke it down for us and made everyone feel comfortable and knowledgable. My son loved working with Nili and his confidence soared. Definitely recommend her guidance and expertise for anyone looking to hone their audition skills!"

-Beth, parent of young actor

"Nili taught me how to find the mindset to take deep personal relationships into every scene or monologue given and make it my own. She gave me every tool I needed to grow as an actress, done all by many zoom calls thousands of miles away. As a dancer I have grown in my acting not just for dance but for other opportunities I am stepping into in my career."

-Julianna Glaser, Actress/Dancer

(Norwegian Cruise Line and Oceania Cruise Lines)

My daughter loves studying and coaching with Nili. Nili is a perfect mix of supportive encouragement and productive feedback, pushing young students just enough to find their voice and explore what makes their work special. Not only did my daughter come away with greater confidence and purpose in her acting, but also with an even greater love for the craft itself. We are so glad to have Nili on her team!

-Alex Agosta, Parent of a Young Actor/Former Company Manager on Broadway
