“This is a great class for any aspiring actor/actress. Just let yourself be open to it and you will learn a lot. Very interactive and lots of fun”

“Andrea has a useful approach that is different from my previous classes. By including body movement this gives you more focus on what you are doing and therefore improves your performance. Also the interaction in class is strong.”

“I really enjoyed Andrea’s classes. They were always fun and an interesting take on acting. She has a way of bringing things out of the work that gives you confidence and a greater understanding of the whole process.”

“Andrea is very professional and creative. I think that her course can help people to open their mind.”
