When you schedule your first lesson with us, be sure to let us know if you are not comfortable around small dogs or if you have an allergy to dog hair. Our boys are usually locked up for lessons but some students like to have them around for moral support!
Corrie Beula Kovacs graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Millikin University in Decatur, IL. After graduating, she spent the following summer and fall working with American Folklore Theater (now Northern Sky Theater) . Subsequently, she moved to New York City. For ten years, Corrie found work in dramatic plays, comedic plays, musical comedies, revues, dramatic musicals, workshops and commercials, including two Broadway tours.
Deciding to make a lifestyle change, she and her husband uprooted themselves and moved back to the Midwest. Corrie is now happy to continue performing, while sharing her knowledge of the performing industry with the next generation of theatre talent. With friends all over the map in various aspects of the industry, she looks forward to bringing them out to Wisconsin to keep everyone up-to-date and relevant! In today's fast-moving world, knowledge about what is happening NOW is important to set yourself up for success!
Corrie has been an amazing friend and coach for me for the few years that I've known her. She gave me my very first acting instruction, and in just a few sessions we completely rejuvenated my college audition monologues. Corrie had a large part in my 5 college acceptances for BFA Musical Theatre, including the top 10 school that I now attend. She is an amazing coach, but the thing that makes her so effective is the time and energy she exerts to help you understand yourself and how to apply your own experiences to make the moments believable. Always energized and highly dependable, Corrie is an awesome teacher.

Steve Kovacs attended The Miami University in Oxford, OH where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Music Education. He taught general music, choral music and individual voice lessons during a nine-year teaching career in Jersey City, New Jersey. Upon moving to Wisconsin with Corrie, he became the choral director at the New London Intermediate/Middle School. He taught there for three years, directing grade-level choirs and the middle school show choir.
Steve is a self-taught videographer and also has extensive vocal and theatrical performing experience. He specializes in working with male changing voices, musical theatre presentation and acting coaching.
I just finished my first week of classes, and I just wanted to thank you for everything you and Corrie have taught me. In my Acting 1 class, we spent 2 hours talking about tactics and beats, and I could answer a lot of the questions because of you.

Pugzly is an 11-year-old Puggle (Pug and Beagle mix). You may hear him in the studio or the basement demonstrating his lovely singing voice. Actually it's more like a whiny howl, but he has no problem finding really good frontal placement! Pugzly is quite the ladies' man and has been known to jump into laps if he sees an opportunity with a dog-comfortable client!
Blix is an 11-year-old Boston Terrier (or, as we like to say, a Bossy Terror). If you're comfortable around dogs, you might find him licking your feet at your next lesson! Blix is a dancer and can demonstrate his prancing tap moves on our sprung dance floor. His brother taught him how to sing, so you might even get the chance to hear his bark/howl.
