Rarely will you find an environment that is so friendly and welcoming while also so conducive to self-discipline and growth. I've taken acting classes my entire life and this is maybe the first that's made me feel like I'm working toward mastering my craft. You can always expect honest feedback from Brooke as well as a genuine care for your well-being. Working with her has reaffirmed my desire to continue acting, my drive to openly embrace challenge, and the need for creative ambition in my day-to-day. Well worth the investment for actors of all ages and experience.
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.
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.
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 : ))
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!
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.
