“I was so impressed by the quality of the program and by how much material was covered in a short span. What I liked especially about this intensive was learning a mover’s call and receiving feedback from a mock audition. I feel like these components of the Boot Camp were unique compared to other programs and essential. Thank you!”

“It was absolutely fantastic. To be able to share a room with and have one-on-one time with these generous, kind, truthful experts in our business was incredible. The whole time I was there, I kept thinking who would NOT want to take part in this!!”

“[The Audition Boot Camp] helped me a lot overall with my confidence, and the feedback I received really helped me improve on my strengths AND my weaknesses. Now I finally feel ready and prepared enough for upcoming auditions!”

“I loved this weekend. The instructors were so helpful, giving of their time, kind, and real. After being out of the audition loop for a while, I regained confidence in my strengths and became more aware of areas I can improve to succeed in the audition room. More importantly, I learned how important it is to love yourself and your uniqueness.”

“It was a great way to work on every aspect of being an actor and learning from others firsthand. I love this workshop!”
