Shelley Mitchell began teaching in Venice, Italy where she lived throughout the 1980s. Surprised by extremely positive and life-changing effect her class was having on both actors and non-actors, Shelley has continued teaching and helping others to look within and reach their full potential both as artists and human beings.
