About the Instructors:

Victoria Timoteo is a local vaudeville-style performer, puppeteer, and overall theatre enthusiast. With a degree in theatre arts, she strives to continue her education and theatrical exploration through teaching, workshopping, and anything in between. Her work at Green Valley Theater Company has included both on and off stage projects and she looks forward to many more. She's also been seen performing at several ArtMix events.

Ariel Ryan is a Sacramento native performer of many facets. If she's not seen as a mermaid in the tank at Dive Bar, you can find her exploring puppetry, fluttering about as a Faerie for Happily Ever Laughter Parties, performing for Green Valley Theatre's VerteFee Cabaret, or attending school for a degree in Theatre Arts. She's had the pleasure of performing at ArtMix alongside her Vaudeville partner in crime, Victoria Timoteo.
