KRISTIN PITTS ALTMAN
OWNER / ACTING COACH
Hello there! I hope you are enjoying the website and even picking up some helpful pointers along the way. I want to introduce myself and let you know who’s behind all of the great ideas at Limelight and share with you a little bit more about us, our coaches and what we can offer to you. Whether you are exploring acting, modeling or voiceover for the very first time or are a seasoned veteran that needs a little extra polish for that next big audition, we are here to help you take those next steps in either starting a new career or advancing an existing one.
Our main focus at Limelight is teaching clients how to audition. To book the part you have to know how to audition and handle a callback. We give each monologue and scene that fits each clients type. Breaking down the script is very crucial and we make sure every individual takes the time in understanding all materials that are handed out, that a 3 to 7 page scene should be fully highlighted with notes helping understand the character that’s given.
In addition to all the training needed for TV/Film, Commercials and Modeling we guide and communicate 24/7 with each individual on their goals, whether it’s an experienced actor who is having a hard time getting representation/not booking enough auditions or the new actor who doesn’t know how this whole entertainment business works and has questions, we are here to help and answer. Lastly our goal is to help actors and models pursue their career the honest and right way.
It’s a real passion of mine to teach others the ins-and-outs of this business. I get a real joy out of saving people grief + time, avoiding acting scams, teaching the right fundamentals that casting directors and agents look for in a talent and giving honest advice by sharing my past experiences and marketing skills to make your dreams a reality.
I get such a thrill when I get a call from a client screaming “I BOOKED THE PART!!!” or even a parent that simply says “THANK YOU.” So many successful actors were about to give up until booking that one last big audition role. I look forward to helping you book that part.
A little bit about me… I have been in “the biz” for over 20 years, starting off as an aspiring child actress and modeling for print ads. I have appeared in several national commercials, co-star TV roles and been featured in many movies. Eventually, I began working as an on-set acting coach, teaching actors and then progressed to owning an acting studio.

Limelight Acting Studio is excited to announce the addition of our newest Acting and Voiceover Coach, Tania Gunadi!
With the addition of Tania to the Limelight Family, we're excited to announce we've created a brand new Voiceover Curriculum which will be led by her. Students can choose from our new 3-Month course or month-to-month classes.
Having Tania on board has also allowed us to expand our Self Tape offerings and coaching for both Private Lessons and Limelight Acting Academy sessions to weekends as well! So if you have a last minute self tape that needs to get done, or wish to book a coaching session on a Saturday or Sunday, we now offer those days as options as well! (*Subject to availability)
Tania started her career on the Disney Channel in TV series and movies, including Pixel Perfect, Go Figure, Imagination Movers and Aaron Stone (her first series regular role). From there, Tania landed numerous guest starring, recurring, and series regular roles, including Transformers Prime (HASBRO), Penn Zero (Disney XD), AP BIO (NBC), It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FX), Wiener Park (WB), The Magic of Ordinary Days (Hallmark Hall of Fame), Enlisted (FOX), Bizaardvark (Disney), Graves (Epix) and feature films such as Bob Funk, Possession, Such Good People and Snow Bride.
Tania can also be heard as a variety of character voices on animated shows and feature films such as Trese (Netflix), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Jetsons, Zambezia, Scooby Doo, DC Super Hero Girls and Shimmer & Shine (Nickelodeon).
For those gamers out there, you may have seen her as the lead character Ajna in the video game "Indivisible" and other games like League of Legends and World of Final Fantasy.
While Tania brings some serious on camera acting chops to the table, her work as a voiceover artist is even more impressive! Together, we have developed an exciting new Voiceover program, which Tania will lead.
So if you’re curious about exploring a career in the wonderful world of voiceover acting, look no further! We’ve got one of the best in the business ready to teach you!
Please take a few moments to appreciate some of Tania's amazing voiceover and acting work below.
