Notable Summer Alumni Testimonials

“I did Atlantic’s Summer Intensive, which was like a bootcamp. It was beautiful. It was a whole summer of just living and breathing plays and scenes. We learned everything from scene analysis, to movement, to meditative Meisner work. To this day, I still use so much of what I learned from them in what I do.”

– Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”)

“I took acting classes at Atlantic when I was 16 for a Summer Intensive and Anya Saffir really stood out as a terrific teacher. So I pursued training with her and with that I started to build my confidence.”

– Zach Woods (“Silicon Valley”)

“I studied at Atlantic when I was 19, and it’s been a part of my creative life forever.”

– Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids)

“I enjoyed everything about the Spring Comprehensive program and definitely recommend it! Everyone at Atlantic Acting School was welcoming and wonderful. Getting back to the normality of life and acting has been a great help for my growth as a person and actor. I will tell others about my experience and send them your way any chance I get. Thank you!”
