"Megan Grace is one of the best coaches I’ve worked with. Her knowledge of the camera technically combined with her acting technique makes her a desirable coach to learn from. She’s fun, honest, and can help get you to emotional states your character is in. She’s my go-to coach and my go-to recommendation."
— Yasharwan B.
"I've taken some classes at other studios, but no other acting class I've taken has given me so much insight into the business of acting and encouragement to actually get out there and start auditioning."
— Chine I.
"Just wanted to extend my most sincere thanks again for a wonderful class. I loved the foundation work and feedback. Megan has a really gentle, nurturing way... they’ll appreciate that a lot the more they work in this business. It was also enormously helpful to see myself on camera more regularly."
— Luke M.
