"Walter Pridgen is a treasured asset to our show. He is the single best teacher a young actor can have."      -Jim O'Dougherty, Disney Executive Producer, "Gamer's Guide" & "Kickin' It"

"I have learned so much from Walter. He has helped me become confident in my choices." -Austin North, Star of Disney's "I Didn't Do It"

"Walter is a fantastic acting coach and particularly great with young actors. I can't think of a better coach for young actors" -Pam Eells, Creator/ Executive Producer, "Jessie" & "Bunk'd", The Disney Channel.

"Michelle's teaching ability is only surpassed by that of her own ability as an actress. The combination of both offers an incredible opportunity to her students and an unforgettable experience to those with whom she performs. I have witnessed firsthand the benefits and positive results her students bring to a casting session and would recommend her classes to anyone interested in on-camera work. She is, by far, one of the most gifted comedic actresses I have worked with and we are lucky to have her in this town!"
