Dara Sisterhen is excited to present DARA Studio of Acting as a heart-filled project to bring her knowledge back to the actors in her hometown.


Dara is an actress originally from Denver, North Carolina. At the ripe young age of 12, she moved to Los Angeles to become one of the most promising young actresses in Hollywood. 

After just 6 months of living in LA, Dara guest starred on Nickelodeon's 'Victorious' which soon led to a lead role in the Nickelodeon pilot ‘Everyday Kid’ (directed by Fred Savage). After her time at Nickelodeon, she was signed to a developmental deal with Cartoon Network where she starred in the live-action pilot 'Attention Students’ (directed by Peter DeLuise). Dara has also recurred on Disney Channel's 'Dog With a Blog' as well as Freeform's 'Switched at Birth.' 


Since then, she played a lead role in the Warner Brothers original movie 'Pure Country Pure Heart' alongside Cozi Zuehlsdorff (Freaky Friday), Ronny Cox (The Deliverance), Laura Bell Bundy (Legally Blonde), and Willie Nelson. She also starred in Thirdstory's music video ‘Still In Love’ as well as her own music videos.


Over her 12 years spent in Los Angeles, Dara has trained with the likes of Krisha Bullock (casting director for Nickelodeon), Andy McPhee (coach and father of Kodi Smit-Mcphee), The Lee Strasberg Institute, The Groundlings Theatre, Michael Woolson, John Rosenfeld, and most recently The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.


At 26-years-old, the journey has only just begun for Dara Sisterhen. While training the next generation of storytellers, she will continue to work in television and film. This may call for some times off and rescheduling of classes while she's shooting. We are always flexible and happy to help in the meantime. 


DSOA is an ideal School of Art for students to prepare for a career in the industry. Whether you’re enrolled or thinking of enrolling, continue browsing to find out about our services. Dara looks forward to working with you.
