★ COMMENDATIONS ★
"Wow!!!! I'm so happy I decided to take your class back in March. Not only have I learned an insane amount of material, but I feel so much more confident and ready for any audition and for the camera. I truly feel like anything is possible (as long as I continue to work my butt off)! :-)"
~ Jazzy Ellis, New Orleans, LA
"I want to thank you for the opportunity you have given me as I have opened up to a whole new world and I am very excited! Just after two days, too. I thought I would be nervous when I was walking into class at first, but it has surprisingly become natural to be around all of you and to do the activities. I'm craving to learn more and to be involved more."
~ John Parker, Denham Springs, LA
