“One of the many joys of teaching at The Academy in the summer is meeting diverse students from all over the world. They vary in age and background, and what they all have in common is the passion and desire to learn acting. It is my honor to nurture their creativity, to let each one of them know they matter, what they are pursuing as storytellers matter, and they are accepted here at The Academy.”
“The Academy's Summer Program was exactly the training I needed to complete my transition from Broadway to TV/film. From On-Camera, to Improv, to Scene Study to Physical Acting, every class was invaluable.”
“The Academy's summer experience is exceptional and motivational! It helped propel my talent, creativity, and confidence to move to full-time acting in New York City and Los Angeles. The Academy's training and family is simply fantastic!”
“The Summer Program was the best summer I’ve ever had! I learned so much about the craft of acting, the business side of acting, and I made friends for life! I loved it so much that I auditioned to go to school at The Academy that fall, best decision ever.”
