What Students are Saying

    5 star review  I love working with Brooke! She is an amazing teacher! She creates a super supportive environment, and she is a ton of fun. I've learned a ton from her, and I recommend her classes to any actor (new or experienced). They are a great place to learn, grow, and also make great acting friends. Check her out. You'll love her : ))

    5 star review  I had so much fun working with Brooke and learned a ton! Her teaching style is wonderful. She balances between pushing you while making you feel comfortable enough to really challenge yourself. She is very encouraging and will work with your different learning styles and goals. She is always happy to give advice on what steps you should take. I highly recommend taking a class with her, you will learn so much about yourself in a fun, welcoming environment.
