Testimonials

"The clarity that the Shurtleff method gave me definitely surpassed my expectations and gave me a definitive method to use when preparing scenes. Sarafina's (Sarafina Vecchio, Instructor - Level 2 Shurtleff to Scene) feedback was very constructive. I 100% would take another class as well as recommend to a friend."

— Siubhan Stormont

"I really enjoy Gretchen's (Gretchen Sonstroem, Instructor - Level 2 Shurtleff to Scene) no-nonsense approach."

— Jeff Smith

"I thought Gretchen (Gretchen Sonstroem, Instructor - Level 2 Shurtleff to Scene) was amazing!  She really gave me more insight into myself and my craft.  She was so much fun!"

— Level 2 Student

"Ann (Ann Filmer, Instructor - Level 2 Shurtleff to Scene) is very good as an instructor.  She's patient and gives helpful feedback.  I enjoyed her class very much."

— JJ Halloway

"Jennie (Jennie Moreau, Instructor - Level 2 Shurtleff to Scene) has a fantastic ability to turn every moment into a lesson and fantastic ability to adjust to each student. I walked out of each class with buckets full of new knowledge and an eagerness to empty them and apply my new skills."

— Sierra Lynne Schnack

"I really enjoyed her (Gretchen Sonstroem, Instructor - Level 2) teaching style, her passion for acting and people really helped me see acting as a high-level art form. She also wonderfully blended logical thought processes with complex human emotion in a way that was really intellectually stimulating. In the beginning of the session, Gretchen would constantly stop our scenes, sometimes even before the first line was uttered; this used to frustrate me until I realized she was emphasizing the level of detail required to properly analyze and perform a scene. Her passion for acting, teaching, and people is both inspiring and contagious.--- The teachers that I had here are phenomenal and helped me grow so much as a performer. They are some of the best teachers I’ve had, regardless of setting."
