What Students are Saying

I have taken several acting classes prior to this one and am absolutely smitten with Brooke Totman's class. She has an incredible way of making you feel comfortable, bonding the group together, and creating a fun atmosphere focused on personal growth. She has a wealth of experience and is able to tune directly into your strengths and weaknesses and play off of those. Whether you are looking to seriously dive into acting, try something entirely new, or just bond with great people...this class is for you!

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 happened upon Brooke's classes while at Cathedral Park. Having taken theater as a kid I was excited to sign up for her beginner acting class. Brooke's class was perfect for beginners. Brooke creates an environment where it is safe to be silly and make mistakes. I'd highly recommend her class to anyone interested in acting.
