My daughter went as well. It is an experience you do not want to miss. You will learn what you need to work on and you will also see your child’s strengths. Just make sure your child prepares, is excited and have fun. I know for a fact the company is like family, if you have questions do not hesitate to ask. They do not mind at all. Kim Myers is up front and honest with you and she is a professional and expects the same from you and your child but at the same time she is kind and warm and when you see her and her team speak you will see the passion they all have for your child. When Olivia went she ended up getting 6 callbacks and that was incredible but what she got out of it was so much more. She made new friends, she learned what dedication, and hard work was all about. Not only did she learn I did as well, on the industry and how to take a deep breath and enjoy the ride. Would I go do this again YES and Olivia is already asking when is the next ARTS.. Good Luck!

It’s all about marketing and networking and that’s what makes these “talent conventions” so great. It is an investment (most of which is a tax write off, this is show BUSINESS), but remember – your child is a child – let them be just that. They’ll have so much fun you won’t be able to keep up. You network and market your future superstar while they have fun. If anything you meet some people and your child makes new friends, and learns about interviewing, public speaking, etc.- Good Luck, Just Go and Have Fun! Break a Leg!
I participated in the June ARTS 2012. This was the best experience of my life. I made great connections, gained more confidence than I walked in with and realized that I CAN live my dream! No matter the age, you are never to old to start. I finally found a career that I knew I could always love. Being a triple threat performer is a title I am more than proud to carry thanks to the ARTS family for showing me that my talent is worth showing! Kim Myers is the best motivational speaker, her words brought tears to my eyes. To me it was truly a message from God that now is my time. My life will never be the same. I met the mother of two of my favorite role models, Mrs. Barbara Cameron. Since the ARTS I worked on “Scary Movie 5″, Iron Man 3″ and local commercials. Also still communicate with lots of the talents agents and casting directors who I call friends! Thank you ARTS family for such an AMAZING experience, cant wait for next time.

I agree with all of the other comments, and my daughter was in the same group as Christine M Madigan’s daughter. Our children learned so much, and were taught how to use their gifts in a way that is appropriate for their age. Listen and follow what they teach you in the workshops they will have in your area to prepare your child for Florida, it is phenomenal advice. Even if nothing happens as far as getting an agency or a job when you are at the big event in Florida, your child will come away from the experience being proud of who they are, know how to conduct themselves professionally around adults, and will know what to do in an audition so that in the future you aren’t wasting your time and money doing things “the wrong way”, and you can give them what they want to see or hear at an audition. And last but not least, I was surprised and completely tickled and thrilled that the whole event is shepherded by wonderful God loving people who want nothing better than to let your child’s light shine through. Good luck to you in making your decision!
