"I've been with ACS for just over two years, taking both private 1-2-1 tuition and group classes. I joined with no prior acting experience, and wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a very practical approach to acting where the coaches continue to push you forward. It has been very challenging, and I've struggled quite a bit, but have always felt the studio and coaching team behind me. It is well priced, fits in with my schedule, introduced me to range of new, exciting people, and has given me the confidence to perform. Will continue to train here and be pushed further."
