Quotes from Students
"Utilizing a wide range of techniques, such as Laban, yoga, and a psychological actor warm-down, Brooke’s training helped me become a better actress, and a more well-rounded person. She holds you to a high standard, and in doing so, not only creates a professional atmosphere, but enables you to keep your goals just as high. She’s an excellent teacher, who cares about her students as people in addition to performers. The differences in performance, professionalization, and preparedness before and after Brooke's training are remarkable."

"Brooke’s attention to detail pairs beautifully with her compassion. As her student, I was always appreciative of her acknowledgement that we all learn in different ways. That being said, she never let me off the hook. She encouraged me to find another path to get what I need whether it be for an objective in a scene, or something in my life. She is a wonder woman."
