Words In Motion Atlanta Acting Classes Testimonials

If you are just getting started in your child’s interest in acting or want to grow their acting skills, and looking for a SAFE place to explore your child’s dreams, Kelly Young Lively’s, Words in Motion Acting Classes is for you!

Kelly Young Lively is the BEST ACTING TEACHER IN THE WORLD. Hunter had a script he needed work on and filmed for an audition. She took time to find him an awesome cameraman AND worked with him an hour last night.. WORDS IN MOTION STUDIO WE LOVE Y’ALL!!

The class is good, clean fun with a purpose that is appropriate for business groups, families with older children and community or church groups. We had fun and gained a new appreciation for each person’s individual thinking. Knowing we worked together, Kelly used a team building approach that made us laugh and think on our feet! Thank you Kelly and Motion Acting Studio!

Kelly Young Lively Words in Motion, Acting and Performing Classes Thank you for helping me with my acting skills. I was having some difficulties with my approach. If anyone is “stuck” and are unsure about their acting, and looking for an affordable acting coach, please contact Kelly.

My daughter Julia has been taking acting lessons from Kelly since 2010. She has loved every minute of it. It has also helped her grow and become a wonderful young lady. I truly believe in what Kelly tries to teach her students and I’ve seen them all blossom under her guidance. I recommend classes to kids interested in acting but also to kids that need to build confidence.

Loved hosting the show just like last year. It’s an unique event and the pub team are in awe of everyone who graduates the course… Stand up has to be one of the most challenging things to do and we feel very lucky to host such a special graduation event. Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved in Sunday’s show.

As I reflect upon 2014 one of the biggest highlights for me was walking through the doors of words in Motion, Acting and Performing Classes. I was incredibly anxious and very excited because I felt a positive energy the moment I walked through the door.

I am incredibly and extremely blessed and grateful to have met someone who has become a mentor to me, someone who motivates entourages and uplifts me every time I come into her presence Kelly Young Lively

I am more confident in myself, I have a stronger determination and belief in myself and my abilities as I move closer to my dreams. I am incredibly grateful and humbled to be volunteering and teaching at the incredible place.

I AM wonderfully excited to do more and be more with Words in Motion in 2015.

One of my co-workers attended Kelly’s Adult Improv class. She relayed to me an Improv game called “Yes, and” and we played it at work. It’s a great game about getting along with your Improv partner, co-workers, family, etc. She was so excited about the class and highly recommended it to all of us and said it will help us on the job. My husband and I began attending in July 2013 and we loved it! Kelly thoroughly explains the various Improv games, the purpose, and how it will help you in life. I highly recommend this FREE class. You will laugh and will leave energized & joyful.

In January 2014, my husband and I enrolled in the Stand Up Comedy class. TJ is a great instructor and helped us develop our material. We loved this class too! I tend to have a fear of public speaking and this class helped me get past it. We both did a great job on our sets in front of a live audience. Though I was filled with fear and had very dry mouth, I had practiced a lot and nailed it!
