Founder’s Message

I am a mother first and foremost.  My daughter was a beautiful child with a big personality – but only around those, she knew.  I thought that she was cute enough to do commercials but what I didn’t count on was that she was mortifying shy around strangers.  I am not shy.  How do you teach your child to NOT be shy?  There are no “anti-shy classes”.  I knew at the moment during an audition for Ford, when she decided to hide behind my leg, that I had to do something to help her be a confident self-assured human being.  And so begins our journey.  

Acting classes help her grow her confidence and self-esteem quickly and effectively.  A monologue is the same as an oral book report or presentation in the classroom.  Acting skills work from the classroom throughout life.  

The Performer’s Academy as a wonderful place to learn to perform and take those skills to the stage, screen, classroom or boardroom.

For those that want to pursue a career in the industry, you do need to be trained, you do need to have the desire and ability to get to LA for auditions and the kids have to have good grades to get their work permit.  Most important of all — it has to be “their idea”.
