what Actors / clients have said

“I can’t rate the AC highly enough. I’ve been fortunate enough to have classes with Mark Rowley, Joseph Milson, James Northcote, Harry McEntire, Leigh Quinn, Andrew Rothney, Martin Bassendale, Eliza Butterworth and several guest coaches- and every single one of them has something different to bring to the table. Their dedication and wealth of knowledge is outstanding and they truly care about each students individual journey. From an absolute novice to a seasoned professional they will be able to help you."
