This class is a must for actors looking to strengthen their skills and expand their range." -Beau B.

"I am a big fan of Keep It Real Acting Studios! Every teacher there is a working actor and that makes a huge difference. I have taken The Castable actor with Tom Burke, extremely helpful in determining my type, Improv-A-Thon with Paul Hungerford, simply a great improv class with a fun and exciting performance on the last night, Advanced Callback with Judy Kain, a wonderful learning experience taught by a real pro with visiting casting experts in every class, and my current class, Scene Study/Technique taught by Suzanne Schmidt. I love going to this class! Every week I feel more confident, professional, and a little better prepared for my next audition. Suzanne's focus on helping each student grow in their own way is demonstrated every week and her complete joy of the acting craft is wonderfully contagious. We just had a showcase before agents and casting directors that turned out great because of the thorough preparation that Suzanne gave all of us. I am extremely pleased that I found Keep It Real Acting Studios!" -Jim M.

She told me that she really learned new approaches to the character and how to use her imagination. Suzanne always had a great presence and gave positive feedback. She was always very open about answering questions and giving suggestions on how to improve my daughter's acting. We highly recommend taking the Core Curricumlum with Suzanne. Thanks, Keep It Real Acting school!"  - Ginger Galvez, Happy Mom

I consider myself incredibly lucky to learn from her and that KIRA offers this great class." - Jessica V.

A big thank you to Paul Hungerford, Suzanne Schmidt, Ashley Crow, Tom Burke, Judy Kain, and Jessica Lynn Verdi. Each and everyone of you contributed to my first booking and for that I want to express my sincere appreciation.

Although this is just the first step towards bigger goals, it takes me one step closer than last week." -Steve O.
