About Claudia...

With an eclectic background working as a performer, as a dialect coach, in production, as a teacher, and in the marketing world...Claudia is incredibly resourceful in communicating with clients ranging from beginner to experienced professional, and in adapting her technique to the learning needs of each performer and team.


Claudia de Vasco began her career in dialect coaching when her teacher Tyne Turner noticed her talent for language and the acuity of her ear in the first year of her training at the U of MN/Guthrie Theatre Actor Training Program.  She continued to apprentice under her at the Utah Shakespearean Festival and then throughout her training also under Elisa Carlson.  Upon graduating she continued to coach privately and locally in Minnesota, until moving to Los Angeles where her private coaching career led to a position on faculty at the Stella Adler Academy  teaching Speech and Dialects.  She currently works there and coaching industry professionals onscreen and off.

Claudia Vazquez developed her fascination with language as a bilingual child, and continued to pursue language through story-telling. Combining her experience as a performer, writer, and teacher with her training in dialects and linguistics, Claudia offers an eclectic and personal experience as a Dialect and Speech Coach which focuses on performer and speaker empowerment and discipline, specificity and a holistic craft.
