"I came to Shelley a competent performer with 
success that had me in front of an audience much of the year, but I felt completely stuck. ...Shelley took me on a journey to discover my true essence as an Artist - she went to a deep level so that anything learned would stick even when I was under enormous pressures.  Now the performance place is somewhere I go to feel real, true and alive; the gift it should always have been."      -ALUNA FRANCIS of
