2020 is right around the corner and with it, some exciting new classes at the Rooney/Totman Acting Studio. I'm thrilled... See More...
Holy Cow! Where to begin?! Let me just say Brooke's class is the first time I felt comfortable and willing to try and have fun whilst learning in a class. I've been taking acting classes on and off my whole life. I love her approach to comedy, getting to the basics and having people try it out on their feet. There is no pressure and Brooke has an amazing talent to find each and everyone's unique natural funny and making it work for them in their work. I love love love Brooke and if you are willing to do the work you will see amazing results and benefit from her teachings. I could literally write a Harry Potter novel series about my experiences in her classes but I extremely highly recommend you take it for yourself. Even if you're a seasoned performer or a beginner into acting everyone can benefit from Brooke! Xo
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 is an amazing acting teacher. I learn everyday from her classes. I highly recommend taking acting classes with her. It doesn't matter what level of acting you are, Brooke will get everyone to enjoy and explore the art of acting in a fun and safe environment. She encourages and motivates everyone to participate and expand the scope of his/her acting abilities.
Brooke makes the experience enjoyable. She has a balance of pushing you out of a comfort zone and keeping the environment safe for you at the same time.
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!
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.
