Testimonials

“It’s a pretty amazing breakthrough when your brains locks onto the meaning of the character and what their motives are and how to express that authentically. I’m starting to have some depth and understanding of what acting truly is about. Feels really good too. Makes one want to cry. Ciao for now mentor, friend and confidant. I’m so glad we met.”

 

“I wanted to extend my thanks for facilitating my learning/growing over the past few months. I’ve discovered so many things that have eluded me in my acting process for years. My audition yesterday was kind of like the culmination of what I’ve gone through in your class up to this point. It was nice to go into a very intimidating audition with solid tools and the confidence to know that I can “go there” if I bring in my commitment and focus.”

I just thought I’d check in to say that lately I’ve been really inspired to just sing and dance and express myself like I never have before! I thought that was neat, and definitely part of my growth from exploring more voice and movement at Actorium. It’s not just about the scenes and doing well in front of others, it’s about personal growth and change and freedom too… thanks.

“I just wanted to reach out to you to say that of all the things we practiced in the sessions I was in, being present in the room has been, by far, the one that has helped me the most. not only on set but in every audition. I’ve been working pretty much non-stop since the beginning of August. It’s also done wonders for my confidence because I don’t feel like I’m “winging” it or that I got a role on a fluke. For the first time since I started acting I feel like I see things more clearly and I’m having fun! Thank you so much for your passion and patience.”
