"I'm now beginning Tech II as an online student, and I am astounded by the rate at which my classmates and I have improved through Wendy's training!

Wendy has worked with hundreds of first time actors and appreciates the bravery it takes to begin serious acting training — especially if you've been waiting many years to realize your dream.  Guess what?  She's got you!  Beginners are frequently her favorite students because they have an advantage — they haven’t developed any bad habits they need to set aside.  A little talent, good discipline and a ton of enthusiasm go a long way.  She will get you started in simple, introductory classes and will raise the bar whenever you are ready to move to the next level. All you have to do is take the first step and book your consultation.

In 2016, her theater company's production of Jacuzzi was named one of the region's top 10 best shows of 2016.  Two of the four actors had never performed in their lives.  INDY Week Magazine theater critic Byron Woods said this about her work:  “JACUZZI marks Wendy Ward’s directorial debut in the region, and the regional debuts of three of her company’s four members. For two of them, Jacuzzi is their first show ever. Not to worry: you won’t be able to pick them out. But how do beginners get this good this quickly? Having a well-seasoned teacher helps.”

As a complete beginner it was a daunting task finding the right coach to work with. I found Wendy’s website through a google search and decided to book an initial consultation. In that first meeting, I immediately knew I was dealing with a master. I was so impressed with Wendy’s skill and professionalism that I decided to do a tailored intensive course with her at the Ward Acting Studio in the U.S. It was an exhilarating experience!
