Christina Gorman’s Level 2 class was phenomenal. She had amazing insight on the industry and her feedback was incredibly helpful. Not to mention she is so fun and hilarious, and she made the 3 hours zoom by. Two thumbs up!

"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!!"
