"I came to Acting Studio Chicago with zero experience in the craft, just a desire to have fun and have a new experience. ASC delivered on that and more; the people in my class with me were great, and the teacher - Christina Gorman - was just fantastic. Beyond fantastic. Her enthusiasm, positive attitude, real talk when feedback was needed and authenticity make her an incredible teacher, and no doubt a wonderful actress. I can't wait to take another class!!"

— Emily Drake

"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."

"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."
