The Academy is a unique place. I've known the owner, Stuart, for over ten years — since I was a young teenager. I've seen many of his students go on to be quite successful. While the Academy has gone through some minor business and management turbulence, their core principles and mission has endured. Overall, the staff is exceptionally talented and experienced. I would recommend this place for lessons to any of my friends. Expect a serious commitment and hard work if you actually want to be successful in the industry.

I too have been attending classes at this school, but my opinion is very different. I also got the Groupon, and thought it would be a fun way to add some creativity into my life. I doubt I'll ever be good enough or have the time to do anything professionally with this, but I've enjoyed all of the classes, and have felt just as valued as the students who are pursuing acting careers. I was in class with one of the reviewers here, and can shed some light on what she is referring to. She was asking the teacher to censor our speech, and asking us all to use less profanity. I honestly didn't find it to be too much, but even if I had, I would never have asked others to abide by my personal preferences. I know that in life, I may choose to use as much or as little profanity as I see appropriate, but I also know that others are free to do so as well. Furthermore, this is an adult acting class, and no children are present. Finally, in signing up for an acting class, I would assume that we are all trying to expand who we are, at least a little bit, and to even role play people we would never be, all in a safe and protected environment. Censorship of certain words or speech would not allow this kind of creativity. For example, if we are doing improv, but have to constantly be thinking about whether we are allowed to say certain things, then we cannot get fully into that character, and our creativity is stifled. I know that would defeat my purposes in signing up. However, the teacher was very respectful, and even allowed a 2-3 hour discussion (cumulative over 2-3 classes) to try to address her concerns. She really did want us all to be in agreement over this, and to move forward as a group. Obviously, it didn't work out. Regardless, I have found the entire organization and its staff to be very friendly and welcoming. I haven't noticed any bugs (dead or alive). Yes the building is a little old, but come on, I'm not sleeping there, and I think it has a cool kind of charm. (Plus I like old things) I haven't felt overwhelmed by too many kids (granted I'm in an adult class). I didn't attend the weekend conference so I can't say one way or another about its quality, Bottom line, this is a great place with very nice people, and I'm getting way more out of it than I ever thought I would. I look forward to my class all week because it's such a creative outlet, and it's so different that what I do with all the rest of my time.

This is coming straight from the heart. Believe me when I say that the Academy has been an absolutely life changing experience. I have been studying at the Academy for quite some time and I can say from personal experience that I learned more in one month studying there than I did in multiple months or even years at any other place in Metro Denver.

I would have to disagree, this place has been great for me. Ive be in acting in a really long time and never really noticed I wasnt being trained properly. When I started coming here and starting working with my acting coach its been amazing. With Chelsea not making it the second day it not her fault she had bronchitis and she had to drive by the fire which didnt help much on top of her allergies. We didnt hold it against Ive been there, and for her to show up the other two days I give her props. I believe in this business you have to show its something you really want for people to take you serious. What you put in is what you get out of it. With this place the teachers sees your strength and weakness and works on them both. I love this place ya things have may have been a little crazy but it was the first one they done and they learned what they should do better next time. In the long run I think they did a great job.
