“As someone with a minimal amount of acting ability I was a little apprehensive, but everyone was warm, friendly, inviting & professional & brimming with knowledge. Easily, one of the best experiences of my adult life. In such a short amount of time, I learned SO much. I'm saving to attend Pauls class and Bobbys class. I have no idea how to express how wonderful I thought the experience was without sending every single reader into a diabetic coma! DO THIS COURSE!!!”
“Claire was there to welcome us, so friendly and helpful. The workshop was fantastic, Highly recommend this company. Very friendly, professional and Paul is very inspiring, articulate and talented. ”
“I have just attended a short info/workshop day at The Actors Nest, and that alone has made me want to sign up for not just one but several of the classes on offer. All the teachers are so enthusiastic and encouraging that it is contagious. They are welcoming and invite all ranges of skill level from absolute beginners to professional actors. It was fantastic to see the energy and love of their craft being shared so willingly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
“I found the classes at The Actors Nest very motivating and encouraged me to follow my dream. The activities were fun and enabled me to find myself and who i was as an actor. I would highly recommend to anyone to study there! ”
“Loved the atmosphere! everyone was very nice. I think it would be even better if the information that was taught to us be typed in with the booklet that was given out, like the 7 Habits and things an actor should work on attaining to get agents etc. Teachers were great, I learned a lot, particularly liked Bobby's part of the workshop, he was very honest and opened my eyes to a lot of things, he had very clever analogies and ideas. All very talented and motivating people! Loved this workshop :D ”
“I was very impressed with all the teachers, their professionalism and what they had to offer. When I signed up for the workshop I was a bit apprehensive this would be the usual scammy rubbish that companies put out, but I'll definitely be joining some of the classes for some skills development and networking ”
“My youngest daughter started with the actors nest about 2 years ago. She started out being fairly quiet and listening to the other participants & taking in a lot of information. Within weeks she had come out of her shell and was confident and enthusiastic. Now her older sister has joined & it has brought out her talents. The teachers are highly skilled with acting experience & are very good at talking to the kids at their level, with a lot of patience! ”
“Dear Claire and Paul,
Just wanted to say thank you for a fabulous afternoon at the Actor's Nest Acting School Melbourne last week.
Even as a working actor, I learnt so much from every one of your presenters, as well as from the other actors who were in our group.
I am now inspired to work even harder on my passion.
I would recommend the Actor's Nest not only to fellow actors but to those who want to give acting a try.
“I had a fantastic time attending acting classes at The Actors Nest Melbourne. I learnt acting skills from real actors and had heaps of fun. The friends I made were really nice and friendly. I would really recommend the Tweens class at the Actors Nest.”
“The Actors Nest not only taught me the skills needed to break into the acting world but also the skills you need to get through life.When I first began classes with the Actors Nest I had Low - self confidence, low self-esteem and was very unsure where I wanted my future to go. Just after a few class I had already noticed a change. I was becoming more confident and my self-esteem was rising. I also began realising acting and performing is what I want to do. With this change I got enough courage to audition for a full time course in musical theater, i am very thankful that I auditioned as i got in! The Actors Nest has opened my eyes to a world I never new existed. I am very grateful and thankful to Paul, Dario and The Actors Nest for everything I have learned so far and I look forward to another great year. Nancy -Melbourne”
