Genuinely the BEST. Susan Collins' method of acting/teaching has taken me to the next level mentally with my acting career. I have a whole new perspective. I have attended school and taken many classes for acting and theater, but growing with BAI and Susan has been one of my best experiences yet. 😌❤️

Susan Collins is one of the best things that has happened to Hillsboro and everyone she has touched. In our group, we all bring unique dynamics and experiences to share. Through her coaching, I have grown and done things I never would have dreamed possible. If you want to grow your craft, join an awesome family of artists, and have a blast doing it, we are the group for you.
To say that being a part of this group is amazing does not do it justice! Susan is so supportive and encouraging. In class we have fun, we share, we laugh, and sometimes get a little therapy mixed in :) Our events have been so much fun and we have so many ideas in the works. Can't wait to share our talents with everyone in the future! Thank you to our leader, Susan, and everyone else that is a part of this group. I feel grateful to know this group of stars in our small town.
"Her coaching goes beyond the technical aspects of acting. She brings experience, passion, and encouragement to each and every actor, project, and crazy idea. She believes everyone has potential and everything is possible.
