One year after attending with me daughter. Worth every penny, it was like a really good college course, amazing competition plus access to the best agents in each field all rolled into one fun weekend. If your child has talent and wants to dip a foot into the industry then do it.
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!
Im not a parent, but I was a contestent and this was the greatest experience of my life. Not just for my acting and modeling career, but also I have made so many friends from the ARTS. Its a great family experience as well. I was so happy when Kim Myers discovered me in Erie, PA. I was not expecting to get accepted into the showcase with zero experience. This showcase changed my life, and so did a few people who helped me prepare for the showcase, like Lawrence and Julie. They are the reason why I accually did well in the showcase. I was asked to be in the local newspaper which I believe was a great experience. If you are wondering if you should audition for the ARTS… STOP wondering and do it you will not regret your choice. Thank you to all the ARTS members and the contestents for supporting me through the showcase. Special thanks to Kim because she believed I could be great at what I do, and gave me confidence to follow my dreams. Another special thanks to Chad Broskey, he helped me with tips on my acting and modeling through out the showcase. Also recently I contacted him to ask for tips and he responded right away with fantastic tips on how to build my career. Thank you again everyone!

For the all skeptics and worriers, I am here to tell you that the ARTS is the REAL DEAL. It’s an experience you’ll wish could go on forever, and the opportunities that come of it are the kind that turn dreams into realities. The staff is as wonderful as they come, and the people you meet along the journey become your best friends and supporters. I never thought breaking into the industry could be such a positive and uplifting experience. God bless Kim Myers and God bless the ARTS!
