Some people get things done. Toyah is one of those people. I’ve known her for many years and she is successful at everything she does. Talented, supportive, warm and inspiring, she makes you feel like an individual and is dedicated to help you achieve your best. She gets results!

Toyah is so dedicated to what she does - it’s impossible to leave a session with her and not feel improvement.

C
Catherine

Toyah is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. Not only is she an excellent acting coach, but an experienced actress who shares her knowledge and experience so generously through her teaching. She offers a nurturing and safe space to train and her nurturing and constructive approach gets the best from her students. Toyah’s classes have given me the opportunity of top training, support, industry insights, casting and connections all at a fraction of the cost that I have paid for previous workshops that left me feeling short changed. I feel so lucky to be part of this, and thoroughly grateful.

Jewels

Toyah has many years experience And is amazing to be around in general. So when toyah supports and teaches she gives everything. You can rest assured you will get nothing less than 100% from her. Not only that but she is amazing to work with and she fills you with confidence and bring the best out of you. She is able to see the best in you before you do and bring it to surface with ease so you have the confidence. Toyah takes time to understand your way of doing things and can assist you with your end goal no matter what it is incredibly talented lady would recommend her to everyone!

Lance

I have worked with Toyah-Marie on more than one occasion and would have no hesitation of recommending her as an excellent tutor, both in group or 121 teaching situations. She is confident, a good communicator and a team player who is a credit to her profession

Ima

Toyah Frantzen is pure and energetic. She is open to life and listens, she responds and is in tune with what is happening inside a person and pinpoints exactly what their strengths and weaknesses are. She is nurturing and creates a wonderful safe space in which to express one's inner vulnerable world. True artistry can happen with Toyah's guidance. I've attended Toyah's classes in the past (and have known her since 2004) and have always felt empowered and authentic as a final result of Toyah's interventions.

C
Christina

I am an experienced working actor and I have found working with Toyah-Marie an eye opener. She makes you think out side of the box. Look at scripts differently and gives very honest constructive feedback. When you walk in to a casting you want to stand out. Toyah helps you to do that. She has patience and time for you.
