WHAT PEOPLE SAY

ava1.jpg

"Within a very short period of time, Ava dramatically improved and honed her skills while at Armstrong Acting Studios. The sheer discipline required of the students not only helped Ava improve her acting skills, but also helped her in her regular schooling as well. Preparing scenes each week, having to memorize scripts was helpful for Ava's focus both academically and professionally. The amount of screen time and instruction was amazing, and the feedback constructive and helpful. I would highly recommend Armstrong to anyone who seriously wants to take their skills to the next level. Ava blossomed while at Armstrong and I credit their teachings for much of her success."
