studios offer opportunities for students, but few deliver the complete
experience that your studio offers. It is obvious that the LTA owners
and instructors love what they do and are dedicated to teaching the
love of performance to children."
"I wanted to let you know how great the summer camp was for my daughter. I had been worried that because her
twin brother is so verbal and really has always spoken for her, she'd get lost. I was nervous that her limited vocabulary
would be a challenge in a strong group setting. As I watched her perform with TOTAL confidence and pride I just cried and was so grateful. Turned out the class is EXACTLY what she needed to discover her own voice. So thank you.
We'll be back!"
"The reason why I like this class (Adv Group Voice) is because I can learn from other peoples mistakes. In a private lesson you get feedback about yourself but you can't here other people sing."

"As a parent, I find that in this day and time a successful children's program has three important qualities--fun, love, and safety. LTA has all three--truly a triple threat program!"
"Rena and Renee were honestly the first directors I ever had who had complete faith in my ability and pushed me to be the best performer I could be. If it weren't for them, I honestly do not believe that I would be pursuing musical theatre now, and I just cannot thank them enough for that. Their guidance and support has made me work harder and push harder and want to be even more than I thought I could ever be, and for that, I am forever in their debt. I honestly credit those two ladies for giving me that first push in the right direction, and now I'm getting into programs like the one at Emerson College, and it's just mind-blowing that this is actually happening and my dreams are actually coming true, and Rena and Renee are such a big part of that."
"Well, the feedback I have received is that the residents ran out of adjectives to describe the talented youth (Performing Ensemble) that performed for them last night, a true delight, professional, well trained (it shows), and they want the Performing Ensemble to come back again soon, so if you have a holiday show that you’ve put together contact me and let’s see what we can work out. Thanks."

"Gyana is having such a great time in class already!! I love to hear her singing and practicing her new techniques. You all do such a wonderful job getting the kids excited about the music and the art of performance. Thank you."
"Training with the Academy has helped me tremendously in my endeavors to be an actor, singer an dancer. They have shown me the proper way to put together a resume and headshot for my auditions. Also, having experience in the theatre community themselves prepared me for auditions, how to sing and dance (and do both at the same time) and create a fully rounded character for myself to act upon on stage. I credit lots of my success to the team (Rena, Renee, Joe and Maggie) and I enjoy the fun, informative and smooth-running company they have created."

"This program has allowed our daughter with the opportunities to learn about the many facets of theatre from technical skills to acting on stage. My daughter, Morgan Morris, would never have had such an opportunity to experience and fall in love with theatre if it weren’t for Renee and Rena’s program."

"Dear Renee & Rena,
I just wanted to say thank you for providing such a wonderful experience for my daughter, Sarah. She absolutely loved last session and can't wait for the spring class to start!"

"(Renee & Rena) are taking the next step and opening their first studio in Lafayette, the Lamorinda Theater Academy. "We are about the process more than the product," says Wilson. They teach children how to dance, sing and act first. "We emphasize training," she adds. "It is like a foreign language, you first have to learn the language of theater."
