I just wanted to thank you for the classes you offer for people like me that want to explore and learn about acting. Josie is fantastic! Wow! I have learned so much!!!! I was a bit hesitant about zoom classes but Josie's classes were done with such skill and precision in her lessons and format. We got so much accomplished in so little time! I'm such a fan of your school and can't wait to take more classes! Thank you soooooooo much!
