I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!

Teacher's Studio

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting. She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it. Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path. My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
