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

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
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.
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.
