Hi, I’m Erica Ann Deakin. I have been acting, singing and dancing since I was a child. I’ve been a ‘triple threat’ for as long as I can remember!
I’ve been a professional actress for fifteen years. The majority of my work is musical theatre both in the West End and touring. In 2012 I moved back to my native West Midlands and am keen to share my skillset, knowledge and experience with the folk up here. I love to be able to help people ‘follow their dreams’, just like I have done.
What makes me unique as a teacher and coach is that I am still working in the business. Whilst studying with me I will be able to pass on my knowledge and experience from the past, present and future. I know the current trends and styles, and keep an ear to the ground on what directors, casting directors and drama schools are currently looking for.
I know what it takes to succeed in the industry, and I also know how to cope with rejection. I can help you to survive and thrive as you navigate your own exciting journey.
I pride myself on being down to earth, honest and real. Give me a bell and see how I can help you.
