I earned my M.F.A. in Acting from the University of California, Irvine and

am now working towards Designation in The Linklater Voice Method.


I teach Acting and direct Drama Showcases for The American Musical and

Dramatic Academy in NYC, while also curating group workshops for

various institutions, and working privately for a variety of clients ages 14+.


Having transitioned from the intense world of classical ballet into acting,

improvisation, and voice, my teaching is fueled by a passion for presence,

connection, and courage.


I feel successful as a teacher when my students leave class feeling more

inspired, playful, free, and excited to express themselves.

"Working with Hayley reminds me of the importance of being able to communicate freely, as an actor and as a human being. Working together, we've begun to free my voice and re-awaken my ability to communicate unimpeded.

It's a big relief releasing all of that tension!"
