The Stella Adler trip was truly incredible. To learn from industry professionals in Hollywood was both rewarding and eye opening. I returned with valuable skills to further develop and improve my acting.
I'm so lucky to be a part of the class and I feel like I'm learning so much. Thank you for the support, encouragement and motivation. I can't wait for camera work next term!
Briony was extremely professional! I loved every minute working with her. She didn’t waste a second.
