See what they’ve said:

“I love Ben and Casey. They were so funny and quick. They were smart, wise, patient and kind. I loved the students and their acts. I got to laugh a lot! I liked the packet of information they gave us. I really liked the constructive criticism and ideas of how to make my act better. Casey and Benjamin REALLY know their stuff!”

The experience and advice of the instructors Ben and Casey were amazing and shared information from an outside view, which as the performer I was blind too.”

The level of instruction exceeded my expectations. I didn’t think I was going to learn as much as I did.”
