Early sign-ups are encouraged as space is limited and we typically have a waitlist each session.

“We teach our students to walk onto a set or into an audition and be prepared with the necessary skills, experience and knowledge of what they are doing to allow them to be comfortable enough to be themselves and have FUN.

The goal is over time to audition with
confidence and build a strong Self-Esteem.”
