“I have learnt so much from Kat, its indescribable. The amount of experience and knowledge she has to share is so valuable. I had absolutely no idea about anything to do with acting, castings or filming and now I feel so much more confident and assertive in all areas.

She has truly expanded my way of thinking outside of the box and gave personal feedback and pointers, which was much appreciated considering it’s very rare these days.

Would highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of getting started or is getting serious with acting to learn from Kat!!”

Karla Mura

Dancer

“As someone just starting out in the acting world, working with Kat was so great because she create a really relaxed environment and a safe learning space. She gives awesome, invaluable guidance on how to prepare for, as well as ways to stand out in, castings and auditions, talks about ways to break down a script and tips and tricks you can apply in front of the camera for self tapes.

I would highly recommend working with Kat as she really shares all her first hand knowledge and experience about the industry, is super approachable and very generous with her advice.

Thanks so much for a great workshop!”

Felicity Light

Dancer, Singer, Focus Talent Management

“Kat is a comforting, knowledgeable and inspiring acting teacher who has a wonderful passion about the human psyche which she shares so kindly with us students and translates this self awareness into the acting process.

I loved the exercises Kat presented us with, making us aware of the emotional capacity we all have to share with a camera during our scenes. The experimentation process was detailed, I received a lot of feedback and created self tapes which I was really happy with, thanks to the guidance and safe space Kat provided.

I always looked forward to my lessons with Kat, which were in an intimate group, and the generosity of sharing her great depth of knowledge with us was really treasured.”

I highly recommend taking her classes as they are not only affordable but she truly cares about your progress and improving your skills as an actor.”

Bella Olivares

“These classes have been so intimate and accessible to a wide range of artists within their acting journey.

Such an eye-opening and explorative environment.

I felt so supported through the challenges put before me and felt that the class content was moulded to every student’s needs.

I loved it!”

Diana Smirnov

Dancer, Actor , Brent Street Full Time Graduate

“Classes with Kat Hoyos at The Artists Hustle have been brilliant! Kat provides such a supportive and nurturing environment to develop our craft and I felt very comfortable. The Artist’s Hustle offered a great range of content which challenged me through varying genres of acting, sourcing my own self-test scripts, and challenging me to think about what feels right and why in a scene. 

It’s also been great to have topic-based discussions with people who have different interests and are at varying stages of their acting career. Kat also organises classes with a range of knowledgeable actors which has been so beneficial.

In such a short time I have gained so much valuable industry insight and information not just from Kat but from others who attend as well. Many laughs have been shared, friendships made and my confidence has definitely grown”

Clare Stevenson

Group Workshops and Coaching

I’ve loved working with a variety of performing arts groups. Here’s what some of them have had to say about my work with them.

“What we really love about Kat is that she has been very accessible to the students regardless of her commercial tv and musical theatre success. Not only does she come from a technical approach, she really challenges the mindset and realities of what it means to be an artist in a holistic approach. Mind and body. And on top of that, genuine and approachable!”

Sam Haft

“The Rockhampton Grammar School Dance Council, representing The Rockhampton Grammar School Dance and Musical Theatre Academy, were incredibly lucky to have secured Kat Hoyos for our inaugural aDvANCE Summer School which was held in Rockhampton from 8-11 January 2018.

Kat spent four days working with students aged from 8 years upwards in three levels of musical theatre workshops (junior, intermediate, senior). She had a wonderful rapport with the students and brought an amazing skill set and knowledge base to the workshops. The students loved working with her and her vitality and excitement to work with the students was wonderful.

The students gained so much from working with Kat in various styles of musical theatre and enjoyed the experience immensely. We highly recommend Kat for workshops and summer schools and can’t wait to invite her back again in future years to work with our performers, the stars of tomorrow.”

The Artists Hustle

Welcome to Show Business

“I want to be a successful artist!”

 But how? What next? Are you wondering if you missed the module on how to make it happen?

 You didn’t, it just doesn’t get taught.

 Starting out in this big wide world of acting I felt just like you. Lost, confused and unsure of how and where to get started. I was unaware of the many ins and outs and need-to-knows that we performers happen to find out along the way if we’re lucky! I made the ‘mistakes’ and learnt the hard way.

 But here’s a secret, they weren’t mistakes. They were all lessons that brought me here, to The Artists Hustle. 

 Let me teach you all the things you need to know to start a successful career in the performing arts industry. It’s not about learning your craft, you know your craft! It’s about learning the business aspect to make you a successful artist.

We will cover things like:

  • Mindset
  • Goals
  • Business Tools
  • Marketing
  • The essentials to sustain yourself in the biz
  • Business ownership and much more… 

I am here to change the way we “hustle”.

“Kat is truly fantastic! With a wealth of knowledge and an absolute gift for sharing her experiences with others in an inspiring and insightful way, it goes without saying that anyone who has the chance to work with Kat will come out learning invaluable things about the industry we work in and the craft and dedication that goes into being a part of it!”
