Our Story

Meraki Performance Studio offers training and coaching in acting, dance, and music by providing students of all ages with the artistic tools to authentically master their craft, collaborate with peers, and cultivate community through the arts.
 

“Meraki” is a Greek word that translates to “adding a piece of yourself - your love, creativity, and joy - to the things that you create”. At our core, we believe that allowing yourself to explore that love, creativity, and joy, will give you the freedom to develop a deeper connection with yourself, your work, and your audience. In every piece of art you craft:  your effort, dedication and passion all come to light through the work and your performance. 
 

While there are acting studios in the San Francisco Bay Area, we realized there are few artistic spaces that provide the opportunity for professional development, foster healthy performers, and the ability to connect the community through art and creative expression on a consistent basis. So, we decided to create one. 

With a strong foundation in physical theater, musical theater, classical & contemporary training, Gina and Mariya developed classes that incorporate the knowledge and techniques they have acquired from all around the world and bring them to Northern California.

 

Our Mission
