“I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Michelle Danner’s workshop on Monday. I liked that she brought in different headshots to show the difference between a good and a bad headshot, and she did a great job of explaining what to look for in a headshot when looking at the work of different photographers. She also spent time talking about scams; how to spot them and how to avoid them. In addition, her advice on how to submit to agents, when to sign with one, and when to go union was invaluable. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to begin expanding their acting training into an acting career. On a personal note, I wanted to thank you and the office staff for always being so accessible. I loved that when I called and said, “This is Sutton,” you guys knew who I was. I have taken classes elsewhere, and I can guarantee, they didn’t know me from Adam, so I really liked that you guys took the time to know me. Also, my class was fantastic, and I absolutely loved Dereck Reid. I trusted him completely, and I felt incredibly comfortable in his class. I just wanted to say that I would definitely recommend The Michelle Danner Acting Studio at Edgemar Center for the Arts led by renowned acting coach Michelle Danner to anyone, and thanks for a great experience!” Sutton Franklin
