My daughter (9 years) has discovered a new passion thanks to Speranza and I'm amazed how much she has learned in just a few months of studio classes with Mr. Nick. His dedication and highly professional acting education skills make the students excel and grow. The beautiful location of the Apple Tree house with its warmth and historic charm is just the cherry on top. Highly recommend!
