2012Valerie Dent was sheer delight as Virginia. There was a wonderful air of shy innocence in this portrayal.

    Valerie Dent - Reviews

    Spreading her Thinly

    Valerie Dent slipped effortlessly from character to character and back, here brimming with energy and optimism, there darkly critical or utterly exhausted'. (Malcolm E Thomas)

    Elevator Man

    In this one woman show, company founder, Valerie Dent, totally makes the play her own, to make a night of exciting, innovative theatre; well written, well acted and well worth your attention'.

    (Three weeks - Edinburgh Fringe Mag)

    About me

    I trained at Mountview Theatre School and since then I have studied variousvforms of acting techniques from Meisner, Stanislaski,Michael Chekhov, LeCoq either as an acting coach or actress. I have devised and run acting courses and monthly workshops which are on my website. I have acted in theatre, film, tv and corporate jobs. New discoveries in my acting never cease to amaze me. I feel so much gratitude for working in this inspiring profession. And enjoy developing my own techniques too.
