Phantom Projects alum Danielle Keaton has been a working actress for over 25 years! Danielle began her career alongside John Rubenstein and Brian Stokes-Mitchell in the West Coast Premiere of Ragtime at the Shubert Theatre. Since then Danielle has amassed an impressive list of television credits, guest starring in many popular shows such as Without a Trace and Beverly Hills, 90210. Danielle has also worked with a number of talented actors and directors in films such as John Carpenter’s Village of the Damned starring the late Christopher Reeve, the indie film Traveler starring Bill Paxton and Mark Walhberg, Puppet Masters alongside Cory Feldman, and Beethoven’s 3rd with Judge Reinhold. Danielle can also be seen in the films American Black Beauty and Protecting the King, in which she stars as the girlfriend of Elvis Presley’s stepbrother and bodyguard. Danielle also portrayed Anne Frank at the California Theatre in their production of The Diary of Anne Frank, and was thrilled to be part of the Worldwide Premiere of Frankenstein at Fullerton College. More recently, Danielle has expanded her involvement in the entertainment industry outside of acting and is now working on the Warner Brothers lot as a Development Assistant, and at the newly formed Production Company for Director Todd Phillips and Actor Bradley Cooper. During her two years at Warner Brothers, Danielle got to see firsthand the casting process for Jonah Hill’s new movie, sitting and discussing closely with the director and producers which gave her the incentive to want to teach fellow actors: preparation before an audition, auditioning techniques, cold readings, working on-camera, and learning to deal with the ups & downs of the entertainment industry. Danielle’s technique focuses on moment-to-moment acting and the philosophy of one of her acting mentors: “Keep it simple, keep it clear, but most of all be sincere.”

Anyone can act, but not everyone can act truthfully. We teach our students to understand the behavior and motivation of a scene through self-exploration, improvisation, and relaxation. The goal is for our students to find the truth within the subtext and allow their imaginations to soar. Within a safe, supportive environment, we encourage our students to risk, explore, create, and believe in the powers of their creativity.

To give our students the individual attention they need, we strictly limit our class size to fifteen. Advanced enrollment is HIGHLY recommended. Walk-ins can sometimes be accommodated; however, they are not guaranteed admission and may be turned away. (Please note: Walk-in prices are slightly higher than advance purchases!)

  • There are no refunds for missed classes.
  • Cancellation Policy: After a student enrolls and payment is received in full, a refund will only be issued if cancelled 14 days before the class. Otherwise, a credit can be issued for future classes or tickets to a performance.
  • There will be no guests permitted in the classroom. Our lobby space is open to those waiting for someone taking a class.
  • To ensure the quality of our classes, students will not be admitted beyond 10 minutes after a class start time. A student will be considered absent and no refund/credit will be issued.
  • A disruptive student can be removed from a class at our discretion. No refund or credit will be issued in this scenario.

All classes are held at our Rehearsal Hall: 15517 Phoebe Ave, La Mirada CA 90638
