destined to be "unforgettable", at the age of 3, ritzya began triple-threat training in dance, voice and acting. by 1971, she had been studying dance and music at Juilliard for 6 years and sung at Carnegie Hall twice. a full scholarship, experimental theatre company in NYC gave her cutting edge improv and theatre training and took her to the streets of Harlem and Bedford Stuyvesant in NYC and Watts Towers, L.A., - a cross between "Whose Line is it Anyway?" and the flash mobs of today. with a BFA in theatre, she was a professional actress in NYC and migrated to D.C.

while homeschooing her 3 children, ritzya was a sought after worship dance teacher and performer, ministering at churches and worship dance conferences up and down the east coast. active in her church, she sang in the worship band and co-directed the children's ministry. after having a gourmet cookie business and running a food bank from her home, ritzya began 3 new business ventures: party planning, professional organizing and public speaking coaching. 10 years later, the drama coach's "unforgettable" brand has spilled over to singing all over the D.C. area with pianists, bands and even a concert harpist performing a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner as you've never heard it before.
