Testimonials

“Amy is, by far, the greatest acting mentor I’ve ever met. She is kind, she is patient, and she really connects with everyone. Her advice is really personalised, and genuine. I have learned more in two nights than in the past year since I’ve been training seriously as an actress. She had the time to really talk to each and everyone of us, get to know us and what we’re aiming for, and do her best in the number of hours she had, to get us closer to this dream. I am so so happy with how this class turned out, and I am coming back for more !” Camille Z., Emotional Prep for the Camera Workshop, 2017
“Thanks to coaches like Sei, Clarence and Celia I have started to get answers about the craft of acting. After the first course I attended, I felt immediately like BAW was the right choice.” ~ Samy A., Summer Film Acting Bootcamp
“Celia and Clarence are very enthusiastic and inspiring teachers. I believe they have a natural talent to get the best out of students. It was great that they were so considerate to beginners and knew exactly how to create a safe environment for us to open up and be vulnerable.” – Patrick,  Being and Doing Workshop

“Sei is a great teacher and I’ve learned more with one of his lessons than the other courses I’ve done in Italy all together.” – Ilaria Albano, Film Acting Basics 

“My daughter enjoyed every class she attended with Clarance Tokley. Clarence is not only a professional and talented acting instructor, he has a gift for teaching. His students clearly respect him and enjoy learning from the real life experiences he shares as an actor. I highly recommend Clarence Tokley as an acting instructor!” ~ Dana Hunt

“I feel inclined to tell you that I’ve had a wonderful time at BAW and that Celia truly offers a wonderful and really professional class. Freedom of artistry is the only expression that I can come up with that aptly describes her class. She gets so much out of us and I would recommend her to anyone.” – Alex Poole, Int/Adv Morris and Meisner 

“Sei is not only a kind and patient teacher, he has the ability to help his students find the courage needed to explore a character and to bring that character to life.” ~ Rosa Alterio

“Amy thank you for giving me a chance with BAW when I was 13, for believing in me, for supporting me, for teaching me so much and for being both a dear friend and a mentor.” ~ Philippine

“Recently, I completed a few professional acting workshops in New York City including a 2-day Intensive with an Oscar-Winning Actress. It was an amazing experience that required a lot of emotional preparation. During the workshop it became apparent to me, with every exercise that we did, that I was prepared thanks to my training done with BAW. I was able to relax quicker, engage my  emotional availability and utilize the tools that I’ve learned and developed with BAW. All over Manhattan there are amazing workshops that are fulfilling and helpful to your craft, however they are substantially more expensive than classes offered at BAW. BAW continues to be a great training facility for actors of any level and I can attest to the program’s level of professionalism and affordability!” ~ Alicia Martineau
