"I have truly enjoyed working with Adrianne Cury. I have been in two of her classes, Audition and Rehearsal Prep and Level IV. Adrianne is a master at finding the right character and scenes to match each student. Her feedback and guidance is very insightful and tailored to each student's needs. I can't say enough good things about her abilities, teaching methods, and the way she manages her classes."
