"Through this program, I learned how to balance my life as a performer and a human being. I rediscovered confidence in my material and was taught how to approach material in new and exciting ways. I think I've found a lot more truth in my work as a theater artist and found out how to relate to characters in a way I hadn't been able to previously."

"It was exhausting and very full but I loved it. It led to a lot of personal growth and I am so much more comfortable going into the college audition process now."
