Indrani Desouza
Casting Director

 Indrani was born and raised in Toronto Canada. By the time she was in her early teens, it was evident that she had a passion for the performing arts, and at the age of 13 she started training in the art of dance. Soon after, she received a scholarship at Toronto's Studio Dance Theatre, and then she got the first of some pretty big breaks when she landed the movie "Sing", directed by Richard Baskin and starring Lorraine Bracco and Peter Dobson.

indrani1She used the money she earned to move to New York City and study with the best in the business, including the famed Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, Broadway Dance, and Steps. Now armed with 'serious' professional training, Indrani moved to Los Angeles and started connecting with the dance and acting community there. Thru recommendations, she began training at the famed Aaron Speiser Workshop, an institution she would eventually circle back to and become a full-time instructor.

Her first 'big' job in those heady days was Harlem Suites at the Pantages Theater, and she went on to appear in various music videos with the likes of Babyface, LL Cool J, Prince and Reba McEntire. Then it was TV, with appearances in "The Drew Carey Show", "Coach", "The Jamie Foxx Show", and even as one of the original Fly Girls on the pilot of Fox's "In Living Color".

And as if to not leave any facet of performance left out, she toured with some pretty popular musical artists, including Janet Jackson, KC and the Sunshine Band, Snap, Prince, and Paul McCartney.

During all this time Indrani kept connected to Speiser's acting school (now called Speiser-Sturges Acting Studio), and when Aaron Speiser asked her to come aboard as an instructor, she gladly accepted. After 6 years of teaching, her classes are becoming more and more known to the acting community not only here in the US but in Canada and Europe as well, as word-of-mouth and online reviews are contributing to an ever-expanding class roster. And rightly so; she brings an enormous amount of experience and knowledge of the craft of acting. Indrani feels as comfortable as she ever has in this role and there are plans to expand the school to Toronto and beyond.
