Theatre Classes & Youth Theatre Directing:
HaleyJane is a proud theatre educator in New York and Westchester for Pre-K through High School age students. Receiving her BA from Marymount Manhattan College, she put a focus on courses in theatre education and drama therapy, where she developed her philosophy of teaching theatre techniques through play. HaleyJane provides instruction for children and teen theatre classes, monologue coaching, improvisation, and direction for full-length youth productions.
Adapted Theatre Group:
Haley has day-to-day experience working with children and young adults on the Autism Spectrum, with learning disabilities, and neurological developmental delays. This adapted program uses theatre and movement based games and activities to encourage actors with special needs to better communicate and recognize emotions, engage in pretend play, exercise circumstantial scenarios to strengthen abstract thinking, and gain confidence in verbal and gestural communication. Haley combines the structure of a theatre class with relationship-based intervention technique, DIR Floortime, to bring fun and light to your after-school program, summer camp, or recreation center!
Stage Combat Choreography:
Have a scene in your play or film with violence or swordplay? With training in hand-to-hand (punches! slaps! kicks!), knife, rapier, dagger, and broadsword, Haley can create a fight sequence and safely and confidently instruct actors of all experience levels!
Sketches, short films, and reels. Haley can cut your single camera, or multi-camera filmed shoot with seamless, natural dialogue, synced audio, and beautiful transitions to create a project you can be proud of. HaleyJane's editing work includes sketches with Tiny Shorts, Grandma's Purse, Sad Boys, and full-length web series including the self-directed, Really We're Trying. Or, you can find a compilation of work here.
