More about Deanna at www.buttkapinski.com.

I found it amazing how effortlessly Deanna could guide to students to find the best versions of themselves. She managed to even pull the most stubborn performers into choices that they would have never found on their own and they were all the happier for it.

I came to Deanna because I was looking to be more physical as an improviser. What I discovered was her workshop builds countless other muscles that conventional classes overlook: harnessing the power of failure and vulnerability; creating stage pictures and silent emotional connections with scene partners; and learning how to be truly free on-stage. I can’t recommend her enough.
