See what other actors have to say about Lifebook!

I was a guest speaker for Lifebook and found the community to be warm, ambitious, and excited. The energy in the room was alive and inspiring. I would strongly recommend that actors find a safe and inspiring place like Lifebook to move forward with their dreams.

Allen Levin is a trusted and respected colleague of mine. His spot-on teaching style gives his students the knowledge and confidence to be exceptional working actors.

Allen Levin’s audition coaching helped me book the roles of “Simone” on Passions and “Kylie” on Scrubs.  His class has all the essential tools you’ll need to be a professional working actor.

I have been at Lifebook Acting Academy for about a year, and I can honestly say that being there has reminded me why I’m an actor.  Being on stage with my classmates is a gift and Allen Levin’s instruction is fantastic. I am so proud to be part of this talented community!

It’s hard for me to find the right words to say about Lifebook. Simply put….it changed my life. I went from being insecure and full of self doubt about not only my talent as an actress but me as a human being to feeling confident and full of life.

One evening, I met a girl and she invited me to come by her acting class. I was skeptical at first, but as soon as I walked in I felt this extremely warm and friendly atmosphere. And from there on the night only got better.

I was invited to Allen’s class to speak and do some improv scenes with his students.  I was honestly shocked that I finally met an acting teacher/coach that I truly related to.  I recommend at least one acting class to everyone because it will open up your heart and soul.

His instruction has provided an incredible foundation for my understanding of theatre and performance.  His passion is inspiring and he creates a very safe environment where I felt comfortable to make the mistakes necessary in order to learn. Great for beginning actors (which I was) and veterans as well.
