Daniel will help guide you on your journey as an artist and to give you the tools and language necessary to study at Nancy Banks Studio.

“My goal is to foster a safe working environment to allow actors to take risks with their work and to fall in love with their process.”  

Lena Georgas has been a professional actor for over 20 years and studied under Nancy Banks for 15 of them.  She has a BA in Drama from Vassar College and also studied theater abroad in London.  Lena is deeply committed to the craft of acting and all that the discipline entails.  She will help the actor develop all of the skills necessary for a truthful, dynamic and lived-in performance.   

“Only through discipline and hard work can an artist truly soar.  I love woking with an actor on all of the different aspects of their craft.   They then feel confident enough to go into a room, set or stage and truly share their gift with joy and abandon.”
