    “Charla’s youth workshop was perfect for my daughter. I am an actress myself, and I loved hearing what my daughter learned in Charla’s class. I even learned some new things through my daughter. Thank you Charla. I look forward to my children taking more classes from you.” Liz, Mom in SLC

    “Charla was very informative and took the time to help my son personally and answer my questions. My son loves coming to class and is always looking forward to next week. We would absolutely recommend this class to our friends and we are already considering taking another workshop here.” – Jessica B., Mom of Child Actor

    “Charla is great. I love her giving us feedback after each class. Makayla gained confidence after the first class. Makayla loves the class, her teacher, and the overall atmosphere inside with the kids.“ – Maggie G., Mom of Child Actor

    “Ethan booked his first commercial job after taking classes with you, and he has been doing great since then. He booked a few TV shows such as Nickelodeon, Go On and recently The Mindy Project. Francene even booked him for a commercial job about two weeks ago.” – Henry H.

    “Kylie got a call back on her first post-class audition. Thank you for offering such effective kids classes!” – A. Shapiro, Proud Mother

    “I loved my commercial class… I’ve been pinned for several commercials this year and have booked two national commercials! Thank you so much for helping me learn how to stand out at an audition!” – Hazel S., age 9 (2012 Bookings include United Healthcare, Coca Cola, two TV Shows and a Disney Cruise Lines VO)

    “After only 2 weeks in the kids commercial class Rowan got a callback for a national spot for Capital One and booked a Kohl’s commercial. He definitely has more confidence at auditions and it is working for him. He is really enjoying the class.” – Lena S., Mom of Kid Actor

    “My son, C.J., participated in the On-Camera Acting class. He loved it so much he signed up for additional sessions! …He learned some hard lessons in there too, due to her personal invested interest in my boy’s career and well-being, and for that, Mom’s grateful too!” – Rosanna I., Proud Mom

    “This class was helpful, thank you. Caron was able to verbalize the correct way to enter a room, go to mark, look at camera, answer with first and last name, and expand on questions asked. So great! …to know what to do and how to do it, even just the basics!” – Caron’s Momma

    More Teaching Endorsements!

    “I just wanted to say Thanks for the great class last weekend. Ryan had a great time! I have tried the new games you suggested and I can honestly see an improvement already!! Ryan loves to watch himself back and then says “I can do better than that!” – Child Actor Mom

    “During the time he was taking your class, he had 2 callbacks and booked a Nickelodeon show as a guest star. Your class is the ONLY class that teaches “the button” which I think is the key to every audition’s success." – Kaedon K’s Mom

    “We would like to thank you for working with McKenzie last week. She had an amazing time and enjoyed your training. We felt like she learned a lot from your classes. Again, thank you for everything and we hope to see you both again!” -Christine M. (Mother of McKenzie Burke)

    “Charla knows everything there is to know about teaching! It’s a given that her students will come out of class having learned something new while having a blast. Her students always love her. She’s got that special touch.” – Katy B.

    “My Daughter had a wonderful experience in your camp and we look forward to many years of fun and educational activities with Keep It Real.” -Leigh H., Mom of Child Actor

    “I definitely noticed an enormous improvement in my child’s ability to perform on camera. She seems a lot more prepared for the tough commercial world and it’s competition!” – Yuliya R., Mom of Child Actor

    “Great experience for Kiana, learned a lot. Love it. Very helpful in everything.” – Rosemary J., Mom of Child Actor

    “We are novices to the industry, having started just over a month ago, but since taking Keeping it Real’s Next Step class, have booked out on 2 jobs, one in live theater and the other a series for the Biography channel! Thank you Keeping it Real, you are a true asset to the acting community!” -Bailey B.

    “You are our first choice for acting class! You are the one who teaches by example. That is more powerful to me than anything. Tommy knew NOTHING about acting. I sent him to you for your class for kids and he booked his first audition. No callback, nothing. It was the Superbowl commercial for NBC. Thank you. I am not sure what your magic is, but it is helping my son and his acting career!” – Carla S., Mother and Talent Agent

    “I just wanted to thank you for your commercial workshop today. You were great with the children and we walked out of the class feeling much more informed. Tanya and Malia talked to us on the why home about the different things they learned and said they had so much fun!” – Supportive, Child Actor Momma

    Here's what Charla's students in SLC are saying...

    “Charla is great! I have been to several acting classes these last couple of years and have audited many others. Charla is right up there at the top. She knows her stuff and has many tips to share that make a lot of sense. She has a great way about her presenting the material and instructing. She books plenty of work herself and it’s nice to see someone that knows her stuff and enjoys to share and give back! I would have no problem recommending her.” Travis S.

    “Charla is an amazing actor and coach. My first class with her was out of this world fun, informative and very productive. Learned so much from her with only one class I feel more confident to go on auditions, although I still got so much more to learn from her. I will definitely recommend new and experienced actors to come to Charla’s workshops which are not only affordable but very well rounded and enjoyable! Charla is overall the best!” -V Abernethy

    “I loved working with Charla! She brings such great energy and really helped me to come out of my shell. I learned so many wonderful little tricks that I am looking forward to using in future auditions.” -P Davenport

    “I have been acting for many many years, but am always looking for different ways to approach the art of acting. I have taught acting as well. Recently, I was very blessed to have the opportunity to attend ‘Charla Cochran’s’, Commercial Workshop. I must say that I truly learned so very much. Not only about acting, but just about being who you are. The tricks of getting the part after auditioning for the commercial, Not only commercials, but any part, for that matter. My hats off to you Charla Cochran, You are amazing”. -K Johnson

    “Loved Charla from the moment I walked into the door! She has a great personable energy and I felt comfortable within minutes. I felt like I gained so much knowledge after just one class!” ~Lindsey

    “In one night’s class I learned several KEY techniques and approaches that would have been extremely beneficial for auditions I’ve been to recently and that will help me tremendously moving forward!! Charla is knowledgeable and spontaneous. Her engaging manner encourages participation and exploration in character development and self-marketing.” – Lynn Chambers

    “Charla is a great teacher who can communicate both the basic mechanics of an audition as well as the subtleties of the opinions of those behind the casting table. I would highly recommend her workshop to anyone who is interested in becoming a working actor.” – Hope Floyd

    “Wow….. What a great class….Charla is a fabulous teacher….she makes you aware of the little things that can make or break your audition ……and great tips on things to make yourself a better actor ….glad you are here!!”
    -Tracy Scott

    “Charla’s class was fantastic! From the beginning it was friendly and open- and informative! It was nice to know I was doing some things right, and great to learn what I wasn’t doing at all!”- S.A. Rogers
