My daughter attended the ARTS this last June. She is 12. It held so many wonderful things for her. It was worth every dime and every mile driven from Nebraska to Florida. This has been a great blessing, she learned so much about the business and herself thru the process. The people we have met there were amazing. Great decision… give it to God and he will lead you in the direction. Kim said at the call back that she believed that she met people at points in their life when it was right and that there were reasons for it. I have not forgotten that and completely believe that she is correct.
My 10 yr old daughter went to ARTS Dec 2011 and we signed with an amazing manager that we meat there. Kim is the real deal. Just remember that this is the first step to either N’Y or LA. Be prepared to comment to a lifestyle change and a very exciting journey.

As everyone says it clearly, “Family” And that is what it is. Go in and learn and enjoy…make sure to take a lunch bag with snacks for your child and make sure they get a lot of sleep. It is an experience they will remember forever.Kim Myers and all those who are connected with her have such a passion for these talented kids and when she and her team speak you can see the passion overflowing. Having Olivia around such positive people and seeing her on the stage and the confidence she has acquired has made me see where she shines and where she needs time to grow. If you were to ask me if I would do this again? YES I would. What a great experience not only for Olivia but for me as well.
I agree with all of the other comments, and my daughter was in the same group as Christine M Madigan’s daughter. Our children learned so much, and were taught how to use their gifts in a way that is appropriate for their age. Listen and follow what they teach you in the workshops they will have in your area to prepare your child for Florida, it is phenomenal advice. Even if nothing happens as far as getting an agency or a job when you are at the big event in Florida, your child will come away from the experience being proud of who they are, know how to conduct themselves professionally around adults, and will know what to do in an audition so that in the future you aren’t wasting your time and money doing things “the wrong way”, and you can give them what they want to see or hear at an audition. And last but not least, I was surprised and completely tickled and thrilled that the whole event is shepherded by wonderful God loving people who want nothing better than to let your child’s light shine through. Good luck to you in making your decision!
Agreed, agreed, agreed!!! This is totally an investment. We’ve been twice and it was so worth it.
