Read some of our former talent & agent experiences!
"Here are some words from my son Theo, who attended the Ensemble course:
As an aspiring actor & model I was searching for courses that would get me the best start in my career. I was looking for solid acting training and to connect with coaches with real life acting experience who could help me create a professional acting portfolio and help me get exposure. I come across Performing Art Studio and they did exactly that. They provided me with all the material & information to start self – submitting to agents and casting calls.nAfter a productive 5 weeks of being coached on various fundamentals of acting such as intro to industry, monologue selection, emotion and character development, scene study, improvisation, and monologue study and some one-to-one coaching, I have gained confidence and perfected my self -tape, which I presented at the final live agent Audition.
All my coaches were super kind and supportive and enthusiastic to see me succeed at the end of the program. I was very happy to hear I got an interview request for representation from BAFTA award winning agency with talent working for Netflix, BBC and more. And this is all thanks to PAS. Thank all 😊" Ivana & Theo K.
"I was really impressed with all of your actors. If we represented actors all around the country, I would probably be scheduling meetings with them all. You should be very proud of them and your program. " Cassie B. (BABES AND BEAUS TALENT AGENCY)
"I just wanted to let you know that my daughter, Ava Thomas, who just finished your youth ensemble program has officially signed with an agent as of last night!!!!
It was actually one of the agents that heard Ava do her monologue at one of the last sessions of the program...I also wanted to thank you for seeing something in Ava that got her into your youth ensemble program. Ava learned so much from your program that helped propel her to this next step. We are grateful for your commitment and dedication in working with her. Ava’s dream has always been to one day get signed with an agent and she is so thrilled that her dream is coming true." Shelley T.
“The Ensemble Acting Program really helped my daughter, Sophie, improve her self-confidence, especially with regard to the element of characterisation. She felt she learnt a lot and really appreciated the time, dedication and energy that the PAS provides to young actors to teach and inspire them. A special thanks should be given to Jimena for her constant encouragement, advice and support throughout the program. Laura S”
"Thank you for inviting us to your showcase! Your talent did so well! I can only say I think you have some Shooting Stars there. GREAT JOB to all!!!" Natalie. (ALEXA MODEL&TALENT AGENCY)
"I just wanted to take the time to thank you. I would like to thank you for helping me unlock these opportunities. I honestly doubted myself at the start of these five weeks, but I was able to persist thanks to you. I was actually contacted by an agent today, and I know I couldn’t have done it without you. You have such a kind soul and I thank you for sharing it with me. Thank you for teaching me what I know now and for showing me what I didn’t know about myself. At the end of the day, thank you Janyce. For everything." Khaylynn L.

"The Performing Arts Studio helped me land my dream acting job!I had an audition for the Goodman theatre, one of the biggest theatres in the country. I really wanted to book the job so I signed up for private coaching. My coach was Victor Marana, and let me tell you that he is the reason I booked the job. He was so detailed about the audition he helped me pick out a song, helped me with an audition look, and taught me how to walk into the room with confidence. Victor has so much experience and expertise that when we worked on my scene for the audition I felt so great about it! Honestly he brought out my best performance. Thanks to the Studio I booked that audition without a callback! If you want to be an actor or actress go to the performing art studio! Worth every penny"! Stephy V.
"Performing Arts Studio has helped me gain the confidence I need to become an actress, I loved every second of it and enjoyed working with my coaches Lexi and Elisa. I really enjoyed the program it gave me lots of experience and truly inspired me to continue being who I want to be. Thank you!!" Grace Bennett
"Dennis helped me prep for a monologue for an audition and helped me understand the material much better. He also selected other monologues for me that I'm going to use in the future. He gave me very good on camera feedback as well." Karla G.
"The staff have a collective depth of knowledge that's pretty unparalleled. If prefer to trust your training (or your child's) to experts in the field-- this is the place to go. Highly recommend The PAS to any aspiring actor, dancer, or musician of any age or stage!" Sally L.
"Everyone at the PAS is very helpful and really care for you as an actor. Great place to get insights about the industry and advice for whatever area you're interested. They helped me with a voiceover commercial and improved my take!" Ana M.
"We booked a consultation with Dennis to have a better idea of what steps we should take for my son to be an actor. He gave us a lot of clarity about this industry and researched for us studios schools and agencies for him to start. Really friendly staff as well!" Rita C.
"My kid was coached at the performing arts studio for an audition of a play he wanted to be in. All the coaches we worked with were extremely helpful, friendly and knew a lot about acting. He ended up getting a callback for the play and feeling more secure about his work. Would definitely recommend this place." Guillermo G.
"Through my classes at the Performing Arts Studio with my voice coach Ms. Takesha Meshé Kizart, I am learning to be aware of my instrument, which is my entire body and realizing that I can control the sound it produces. I am learning ways to be in tune with my instrument. It has been eye-opening learning how to breathe properly for singing and for life. I want to be able to handle any piece of music and deliver it to an audience effectively. I hope to discover my unique voice and be able to share it with the world with more confidence and control." Aanu O.
"I took a couple classes here last month and I really liked the way teachers approach the students. You really feel they have a true interest in you. Different from other places where you feel you’re just one more passing by." Daniel P.
"Amazing space! Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Victor is awesome." Alexandra J.
"I loved my class with Sarah Thompson. She is a great instructor and I have learned so much. The space is awesome. 10/10 recommend." Thomson J.
