Tuition Fees

If you’re on the fence about cost, don’t be. Wendy Ward is a genius and takes a no bulls**t approach to teaching. She will expect a lot out of you, no matter your acting experience. She will also take a personal interest in your success and celebrate the hell out of your achievements. Training with Wendy at The Ward Studio is simply invaluable. So do it.
