2020 is right around the corner and with it, some exciting new classes at the Rooney/Totman Acting Studio. I'm thrilled... See More...
I have no Acting Experience at all other than some Musicals in High School but it’s something that I have wanted to do ever since then but never took the Leap until I found Brooke Totman’s Acting Classes on line. I was so nervous but by the end of Class, on the “very first day” I was relaxed, confident and just elated. Brooke takes you on a Journey through your inter self that I can’t describe, you just have to sign up and see for yourself. Don’t think about it, just do it !!
I’m so happy that I found Brooke Totman online. I had been looking for an acting class offered in a convenient Portland location to supplement my previous acting experience. Her classes are fantastic for all skill levels. She provides fun exercises and truly helpful feedback — in an incredibly supportive way. I’ve seen my skills and confidence grow considerably since I started working with her.
Brooke came and led our Portland-based office in a combination improv and public speaking half-day session. It was so much fun, and very useful as well. She was well prepared to make the most of the time and also flexible to our needs and various skills as professionals. For anyone looking for an informative improv for business class or a fun and useful team-building activity, I would definitely recommend working with Brooke!
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.
Brooke is AMAZING! I took my first on camera class with her and now am in her intermediate/advanced class. In addition to being a lovely and hilarious human, she's a dedicated teacher. Her genuine commitment to the craft and helping actors grow creates a safe place for anyone, no matter what level you're at. She knowledgeable, supportive, and gives honest feedback, making the learning process organic and fun. She's open to collaboration, meets individual needs and wants the best for her students. I've gained a ton of skills and confidence with her as a teacher. I would highly recommend Brooke and her services!
Having taken both Brooke's group classes and numerous private lessons I can attest to the fact that she is the bomb. I have booked numerous roles because of her audition coaching, and overall am a much better actor because of her teachings. Can not recommend her highly enough.
