    Thank You Vanessa! I forwarded your article to my granddaughter and she has signed up for a course in the June holidays. She wants to be an actor and her goal is to study at NIDA when she finishes school. Your article was both timely and informative. Thank you again, from the Grandmother of a future Oscar winner - maybe...

    Hi Vanessa, just wanted to let you know that my granddaughter attended the Brisbane NIDA Weekend course in the Qld June holidays and loved it. She made some new friends, as well as learning a lot about screen acting, which she assures me is a lot harder than stage work. If it hadn't been for your article, we wouldn't have known about the courses, so a huge Thank You!!!
