My name is Naya Chang. I am a theater director, actress, musician and teacher. My passion is to empower people of all ages to gain confidence, communication tools and techniques to express effectively. These everyday skills are useful for our relationships at home, work and in social contexts.
I have an MFA in Acting and Directing from Brandeis University. With my clients, I focus on voice, speech, core and movement, as well as principles of communication and expression.
I am bilingual (Mandarin and English) and understand the challenges associated with non native English speakers. I help guiding my clients to find their voices not only to be comfortable with their authentic selves, but also to find the joy in being able to express themselves and be heard!
When we become good at communicating with ourselves and people in our lives such as family, friends and colleagues, we start to create good relationships. When we have multiple good relationships in our personal and professional life, we increase the chance of experiencing happiness.
Personalized sessions for professionals of all fields who are interested in expanding their abilities to express themselves and to gain tools to communicate more effectively.
I was awarded the Paul Dresher Ensemble Artist Residency in 2014. During my residency, I experimented with multiple projectors and stage lighting equipment, composed music and created a solo theatrical dance piece called “Moving Space”.
