What parents and students are saying…
"This is honestly one of the best groups I've ever been with. The experience of being in "La Grande Bataille Culinaire" was completely new for me. Having a new part of the script was like reading a book for the first time with a group of people, but the story was so fresh and new. I can honestly say that I've never been in a production that had more heart. I wouldn't trade the experience for the world and if I could do it all again I would. Yeah, there were some long days and a ton of painting, but it was worth every brush stroke."
“Our son, Liam, has been studying with Courtney for almost five years. Courtney has been instrumental in helping him improve his singing, acting, and audition skills. As a result of Courtney’s coaching, Liam has gained self confidence and has landed every role he has auditioned for. But most importantly, Courtney has fostered a love of the arts with Liam. Liam is grateful and honored to have Courtney as a mentor.”
“I love working with Courtney! Her passion for her craft and open mind to risks and possibilities is contagious. Courtney possesses a keen understanding concerning the depths of human nature, and it’s a thrill developing and learning about characters alongside her. She will push you to search far beyond the lines written on the page. Her unwavering patience and personal care for her students is, to me, invaluable. When I worked with her the first time, everything she said to me suddenly clicked. I got it! And more importantly, as teacher and student we clicked. I felt from the start she knew exactly how to communicate to me in a way I could process and apply. She allows you to build confidence and faith in yourself as a person and artist.”
"Our son has taken both a small scriptwriting-and-performance class and the big spring musical production class, and both were excellent. Courtney Corey is a successful professional actor (lead roles in Wicked & Rent) who can also write, direct, design, choreograph and inspire kids, from little ones to teenagers, to have fun while creating fantastic art. She leads through kindness and imagination and great expectations of every child."
"'The Jungle Book' closed last night after an amazing four-night, sold-out run. Not only were the script and musical score original, but she customized parts of the play during the process to bring out the best in each and every young actor. What an amazing treat. We can't wait for the next show!"
"Courtney is amazing! She brings out the best in every student and they all LOVE her!"
"So glad we found Ms. Courtney for our son. He enjoys his class and enjoyed being a part of the recent play "The Jungle Book.' We, as a family, have enjoyed being part of the project , as well. It was such wonderful experience for us. Looking forward to any upcoming projects Ms. Courtney has for us."
