"THE ACTOR ACADEMY has a safe environment in which your children can gradually come out of the shell and experiment with new behaviors.

Many children have come into our studio absolutely frozen with fear, and by the end of the year have completely put shyness behind them. They find themselves participating just the same in the group as everyone else"
