What Our Clients Have to Say

"The confidence that the instructors have instilled in my daughter is priceless. The training she received at Launch has propelled her forward in this industry. I am so thankful that our path led us to such extraordinary individuals who truly care about my daughter’s future."
"I want to express our love and gratitude to Ashley, Nicole, and Craig. Without their leadership, guidance, support, and efforts on our behalf, Addison would not have been prepared for the path that she is on today. She continues to coach and tape with Nicole when she is home in Louisiana. The growth and progress that we have seen in her is amazing. In everything in life, you must have a solid foundation to build upon. We believe the foundation of acting education she received was the best in the business. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
"Craig, Ashley, and their team gave us our very first introduction to the entertainment industry. They gave my daughter her first acting class in 2003, and it was through these that we first gained an understanding of the business. Furthermore, it was their support and encouragement that led us to pursue careers in entertainment. We would not be where we are today without the preparation and training that they provide!"
