About your coach and mentor

Hey there! I’m Kat and I’m a graduate of The University of Wollongong having completed the Performance (Music and Theatre) degree and my Cert IV in Dance at Brent Street Performing Arts. 

I have been very lucky to have continued my training around the world! I’ve trained with Ivana Chubbuck Studios, The Groundlings, Lisa Robertson, Margie Haber, Les Chantery, Improv Theatre Sydney, Scott Sedita Studios, The Hub Studio and many more.

I gained commercial recognition nationally by playing Layla Habib, in Channel 9’s comedy Here Come the Habibs. The show was nominated for “Best International Comedy” at the Golden Nymph and the Berlin Rose D’OR Awards. In Australia, it was nominated for “Most Popular Comedy” and I got a couple of nomination mentions for “Best New Talent” and “Most Popular Actress”. I was in the film Chasing Comets (starring Isabel Lucas and Dan Ewing,) that is now available on Stan. You can also catch me in Channel 9’s new heartwarming drama for 2021: Amazing Grace, in the role of midwife Sasha Lorente.

As well as working as a performer on stage and screen, I have branched out into teaching acting, singing and dancing. With the more industry experience I gained I began to direct my coaching toward helping performers with industry knowledge and insights as well as their skills. This has led me to work with leading performing arts institutions including NIDA, Brent Street Performing Arts, Ettinghausens and The Hub Studio. I have also guest lectured at The University of Wollongong and guest coached at many leading schools interstate.

Kat is one of a kind in all that she does; Teacher, actor, mentor and Artist. The amount of experience and knowledge she has to share is so incredibly valuable.

It was amazing to be in Kats class and to feel the energy of commitment and encouragement towards the work.

The knowledge she shares is an eye opener for me and all other artists. I really feel proud and honored to know and work with Kat, as she truly is such a great teacher and leader!

She is intuitive, generous and kind in sharing her knowledge of the work and the industry.

I always turn to Kat when I have questions navigating the industry in Australia and the work.

Her constant drive to give, share and motivate is priceless!

The Artist’s Hustle provides actors with the imperative skills not only focusing on their craft but acknowledging themselves as a business.

After living in LA for five years I learnt this the hard way- the Artist’s Hustle is a fast track way to hone your knowledge and stay accountable alongside a great community. And Kat is the one I trust! She’s got your back

When I returned to Australia, Kat was the first one I turned to on advice of who to reconnect with back in the Aussie market. Suggestions on high caliber teachers, classes and networks. She’s been a great support.

I had no expectations walking in and the lessons I had were priceless. An extensive pool of knowledge from the working industry not only in acting methods and training, but real world experience, and that’s stuff you don’t get at most other places.

To come into your own and leave feeling not only empowered but discovering your emotional and mental blocks. Results are only cultivated by T.A.H who really knows what’s doing!

I highly recommend The Artists Hustle to anyone!

I have known Kat for over 7 years, both on and off the stage. Her professionalism and attention to detail in her work carries on through her teaching and coaching.

Kat has been my go-to for all things ‘industry’ since we met. I look up to her as an artist, professional and a human. She is always full of knowledge and understanding when it comes to any questions I have about the business of showbiz!

During her career, Kat has taken on an abundance of knowledge about this industry and has created tools to assist not only herself, but others in their success! To be able to work with her is incredibly exciting.

When it comes to transitioning between the different sectors of this industry, a mentor

like Kat Hoyos, who has so successfully made these transitions herself, is invaluable. Meeting with her gave me the knowledge I need, both foundational and commercial, to broaden my reach through the areas within the actors industry my skills can be seen and utilised.

I’m truly so grateful to have crossed paths with Kat. Apart from filming my auditions/self-tapes and being a wonderful acting coach, she’s also been a friend, mentor, and life coach who will go above and beyond.

As actors, we sometimes feel stuck or unmotivated, but she keeps you accountable and gently pushes you to keep going, to grow and learn and make realistic and achievable goals to stay on track whilst continuing to move ahead in the right direction.

Kat has this beautiful energy about her, and a comfortable and relaxed set-up which makes it so easy to get into the scene and character. Not only does she give so much as an actor to work off she has years of experience and knowledge in this industry in front and behind the camera. So you always know you’re in safe and professional hands.

Thank you Kat for always being patient, supportive, generous and uplifting.
I’ve just recently secured a supporting role in Heath Davis’s upcoming feature film Christmess- I couldn’t have done it without you Kat! Here’s to the next one!”
