Professionals

“US Performing Arts Camps is the best training ground around for young artists! Their approach is an intensified week of professional training. For students who want the opportunity to explore a focused area of the arts for the first time or to expand their craft …THIS is the place to go. The mentors and teachers are authentic and experienced. Actors I’ve found from the camps have had a true understanding of what it takes to get started in this business and what to expect from their college exploration.” — Rebecca Kitt – Los Angeles Acting Coach; Talent Manager

 

Performing Arts is a fantastic camp where students learn from professionals…so not only is the information the pros impart straight and from their studio experience but the students get the anecdotes and insider info….only known by those who do it for a living then choose to share it during their summers.” — Mary Lou Belli – Director | Author of “The NEW Sitcom Career Book,” “Acting for Young Actors,” & “Directors Tell the Story”

 

Students Parents

“I booked my first BIG LA job!  Although I can’t talk about the project, I can tell you it’s a big movie with a very big director. I wanted to take time to thank USPA because I discovered how much I love acting through my summer workshops in Acting for the Camera with Mary Lou Belli and Charlie Dougherty.”   — Tate M – Actor

 

“USPA’s Advanced Digital Film camps have been such a happy learning experience for my daughter.  She gained courage and confidence and peripheral skills to help her in her field.   And she had so much fun!” — Santa Ana, CA

 

“I didn’t know that I could learn so much in five days. I came away from that week with so much more knowledge and perspective than when I went into it.” — Isabel T – Takoma Park, MD

 

“Thank you, USPA for such an incredible program!  I left every summer a changed person with new knowledge and insight about my craft and the business.” — Rachel M – Miami, FL

“I took this workshop and got into my top three schools. (NYU, USC and Chapman) This is an unbelievable opportunity to work with some of the best people in the field and get a one-up on your college auditions. If you are able to attend this workshop, i HIGHLY recommend you do so. You wouldn’t go into your SAT/ACT without preparation… THANK YOU, USPA!” — Stephanie K– Buffalo Grove, IL
“I can’t thank you enough for providing this opportunity for the students to get first hand professional experience in the fields that they are dreaming of pursuing. It is such a valuable experience. Attending the course at a first rate University was also inspiring and helpful to making my high school student feel ready for college. We appreciate the tight ship you run – we felt our daughter was in good safe hands and she enjoyed it so much that she didn’t want to leave. She literally had no complaints – which is pretty impressive!” — Parent

 

What do students have to say?

“Without USPA and all of their help, I really don’t believe that I would have been accepted into The Tisch School of the Arts at NYU (my first choice college).” — Alex R

“It was an amazing experience. I learned a lot about the college theatre audition process. And it made me less nervous for them. I applied for 9 colleges and had to audition for all of them, but the workshop prepared me mentally and physically.” — Anna (College Audition Boot Camp Student)

 

“I spent one of the best week of my life, thank you! All the things, you and the staff, have done for me were wonderful!! Thank you for everything! — Musical Theater – Pepperdine
