Parent Testimonials:

 “Honestly, I don’t know how to thank you & Actors Connection for the amazing opportunity for Joy to attend this program!  The opportunity to perform for (and get feedback from) so many Agents and Casting Directors was priceless! Joy was excited for every day, made so many new industry connections as well as new friends...it was easy to see how valuable this was for ANY young actor - and how the tools learned raised the level of confidence dramatically.  Totally amazing!!! Thank you - we are forever grateful for everything - and plan on being around for a VERY long time!” -Debbie, Parent of Joy Tuck, LA Performing Arts Camp, July 2019  

 “Farrah can not stop talking about the program!  She had such an awesome time. She learned so much in just a few days from you and all of your guests.  And as a cherry on top she made some amazing friends. You have really solidified her decision to pursue her dream and passion for acting.  Being in business I know most of the time we only hear about the negatives so I wanted to send you a positive note. Big thanks to you and your instructors for being so supportive, encouraging and most importantly educational.  The skills she learned with you will go a long way. I’m sure we will see you again as she would go back tomorrow if she could.” -Paula, Parent of Farrah Bilica, LA Performing Arts Camp, July 2019  

“Thank you so much for everyone, Riley had such a great time at Actors Connection. She loved the other kids and made great friends!” -Sheryl, Parent of Riley Noon, LA Performing Arts Camp, July 2019
