With 15 years of experience as a Casting Director and Theatrical Agent, I I have insight to both sides of the business.
As a Casting Director, I have worked on projects for Disney, Nickelodeon, MTV, Fox and E!. I know what it takes to ace your audition and stand out against the competition.
Working with actors to fulfill their desires, follow their hearts, and achieve their dreams is my passion; this is why I have launched a full service audition coaching business.
I work with actors around the country to build up on their skills, and dig deep to realize their confidence. I work one on one with my clients in person and via FaceTime, hold monthly group intensive classes where you’ll learn from up and coming actors from around the country, and hold seminars focusing on the parents of child actors.
We met Dana at an extremely critical time last summer. We were in the midst of making some really hard decisions. I had just started listening to her podcast and I instantly felt inspired. We ended up setting up a consultation and a coaching session with her and we are so happy we did! We absolutely love coaching with Dana and after a long dry spell, Hayden recently got a huge callback and he regained all of his confidence back. She is very accessible and grounded which is sometimes hard to find in this business! She is our first choice - always!
My son has been working with Dana Bowling, since October of 2018, for in-person, private audition coaching. He absolutely loves her, and she has made him feel very comfortable from day one! She has also been wonderfully accommodating for our busy schedule, and her online scheduling calendar makes it easy to see if she’s available, and to set up appointments. We love Dana, and are very appreciative of her advice and expertise! The icing on the cake, is that he has had a callback on every single project she has coached him on! I would recommend her services in a heartbeat!
I stumbled upon Dana on twitter when I was looking through casting directors, and her page was so friendly and welcoming that I decided to book a consulting meeting with her. Dana is my go-to, number one coach I have ever had. I truly believe she is the nicest and best coach in Hollywood (or ever!!) Dana has great insight into scripts and knows all the hidden secrets within the business due to her diverse background. Her work ethic and love for helping and teaching others shines during sessions and on social media. On her free time, which she hardly has because she is working so hard, she is doing helpful live-streams on Instagram helping out even more! She is truly the biggest gem in the industry, and I'm so grateful for her.
We have been coaching with Dana about a year now, and i can not say enough wonderful things about her. It has hands down been the best investment in my son’s acting career. From initial “parent meeting” and evaluation, ongoing career counseling and advice, scene acting one-on-one classes to frequent audition prep sessions - i don’t know where we would be without Dana. She has such valuable insight and does an amazing job working with Logan and teaching him scene study and audition techniques. She is positive and encourage while challenging him and pushing him to the next level in his acting. I trust her opinion and she creates a comfortable sounding board for my questions. Her podcasts are amazing, with such valuable insight and answers questions i didn’t even know i had. I honestly look forward to the launch of each one. If your child is interested in acting, i highly recommend setting up an initial meeting and evaluation with Dana. Also - start listening to her podcasts yesterday 😍
