What Students are Saying

    5 star review  I always wanted to take an acting class , and I’m so glad that I chose this class to take. Brooke was an amazing teacher and coach. The best 6 weeks ever!

    5 star review  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 !!

    5 star review  I had always wanted to take an acting class and pulled the trigger and did it! Brooke's class was great! Extremely engaging while being very much "at your level". She's a great teacher and I felt like I truly grew!
