"I appreciate and am grateful for the time I spent studying acting with Lynette. I went to New York in search of interesting and innovative acting classes and I found Lynette Sheldon - I instantly fell in love with her passion and her original approach. She really knows how to challenge her actors and help them grow at a very fast speed. She helped me break out of my comfort zone and discover a whole new bag of tools. She taught me how to play a 'bitch' really well". After taking Lynette's classes, I gained more confidence as an actor. She's a wonderful and very gifted teacher".
