Tapely

Book more work with quality coaching in a supportive environment.

Coaching at Tapely is approached from a place of helping you  remove the blocks getting in the way of your most truthful acting. Bring scenes to life with your unique essence and instincts moment to moment. Create compelling scene choices, get clear on audition-specific camera techniques, connect deeper with your work, and enjoy acting again.

Tapely is a safe and respectful space for working vulnerably in scenes.  We're passionate about lowering as many barriers to entry so it's easy for you to show up fully with support, agency, respect, and enjoyment of the process. Along with in-studio (Vancouver) and online options, we strive to provide an experience where you can do your best work and never leave feeling like you bombed.

 

We believe in building and giving back to community and donate a small portion from each Tapely session to SNIWWOC - a Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) and Songhees nations (Victoria, Canada) based organisation that provides support & advocacy for BIPOC, immigrant and refugee women through programs such as art therapy, counselling, financial education, health clinics, grocery support, yoga, and community building.

Get out of your head, into your feeling and re-inspire your acting.
