Karen Storms is one of the most highly recommended acting instructors/coaches at Children In Film.
The acting studio where aspiring actors become working actors
After School Acting Classes
beginning in February for ages 6 - 18
Anna Maria Island Community Center
Make Believe Team
A wonderful once a week for eight weeks class exploring the art of acting and pretending, in which the young actors exercise their imagination through story telling, getting into character and make believe. The class inspires confidence in the very young actor.
Tuesday 3:30 – 5:00 PM
In this once a week for eight weeks lab Karen teaches her proven, unique acting techniques to build confidence, how to stay emotionally real through listening and reacting using scene study, improvisation and monologues. Students work in every class! No one ever just sits and watches. The goal is to develop a comprehensive set of "acting tools" to draw upon when approaching a role or a scene. As a result actors acquire confidence, self-awareness, a strong creative spirit and professional work ethic.
Wednesday 4:00 – 6:00 PM

Dad Questions Value of Casting Director Workshops
After seeing his son's performance following a single one-hour private coaching session with Karen Storms he turned to his son and asked, "What have you been learning at all those workshops down there?" The actor had attended workshops of a casting director, actor/director, and a set coach - all three at a single location. The dad later remarked, "It's good to finally get a honest critique instead of being told 'he's doing great' all the time. I'm blown away by what I see in my son now!"

"I thought Jaimie did a terrific job with a tough monologue to execute. Karen's coaching, as always, was spot on perfect." L-A manager.
"Two things I've noticed about actors that come out of classes taught by Karen and Michael are not only well prepared, but they really know their craft. The work that Karen does with these actors is amazing and it really shows up when you're under the gun and trying to meet a deadline on set and relying on your actors to deliver the goods. Actors trained by Karen really do a great job and I wouldn't think of casting anyone else."
