Hi there,

Some happy news….

1. I’m going on vacation today for three weeks and I’m so excited. to see my family I could burst.

2. As you may know, when I’m not teaching business leaders how to build and lead a team they can trust, delegate, and free up their time by leveraging the skills and talents of others…

I’m a singer, band leader and the Artistic Director of Portland Musical Theater Company, which I founded earlier this year.

I’ve been a performer all my life.

Deanna Dancing

First as a dancer starting at age 2, then acting and singing. I’ve been a professional performing earning all or part of my income from performing since I was 22.

So when I saw 350+ auditions in a month this year for my new musical theater company I knew I could coach and teach performers how to give a better vocal audition.

My first vocal audition was when I was 13. I was auditioning for the high school all girls show choir…and yes, I got in. (but that’s a story for another time.)

So after singing professionally in bands and musical theatre for almost 20 years, I’m inviting just 5 singers to learn with me in an exclusive one-day workshop on June 25th in beautiful Portland Oregon.
