They understand exactly what it takes to be successful in the entertainment industry. Therefore I discover and sign new talent every time I scout at D&A Talent – they are the best.

Two of my children, Cindra and Devin have been involved in D&A Talent for over 5 years. The training, access to qualified instructors, their access to nationwide agents, and general networking opportunities is well worth it. The owner Connie runs a quality business in which the money I spent I consider an investment in my children’s future, not to mention the confidence and positive self-esteem it in stilled. Connie and staff are first rate. A very positive experience for my whole family. Both of my children have local and national agents and have been auditioning and working for over 5 years now.

We want to thank you, and request that you extend thanks to the entire staff, training, coaching and advice and opportunities she has been given. She may never be a major star, but the confidence and discipline she had gained through your program has been invaluable for other parts of her life, as well.

D&A Talent has truly become my go to resource for help and guidance in this industry. They took me on when I was 18 years old, full of doubt and anxiety, and helped me hone my craft and mold myself into a confident performer. Today, I have worked on projects with ABC network, several independent films, commercial, and more. They are a dedicated team of caring individuals, devoted to helping you unlock your full potential. They are an excellent start for new talent and will take you far if you are willing to work hard!!! Best of all, they treat all of their talent and their supporters like family. I love these guys!
— Samantha R, Talent
Being fairly new in the “industry” it was refreshing to meet Connie when she recruited my son, Joe. They asked my son to audition and offered several different options which was great as we had just recently spent a lot of money putting him through another program and they were willing to work with us in our financial “comfort zone” but never treated my son or myself any differently than other talent they were working with! My son loved the acting coach they brought in to teach classes and best of all, they still treat him as family and continue to be his biggest cheerleaders for jobs, projects, auditions, etc...........LOVE THAT!!! My son and I also love all the new friends we have made in the process which is priceless. Thanks for all you do and keep up the great work!!
— Linda, Parent
The is a very caring and honest company. We have had a positive experience with D&A. The classes are taught by professionals and the value is worth every penny. D&A talent has offered her the experience of a life time. My daughter was able to learn skills that she will have for the rest of her life. They have allowed her to expand her knowledge and gain confidence. They have given her the opportunity to work with local and national commercial Ad agencies and has now signed with a record label.

We are so thankful for the wonderful training and opportunities we’ve received through D&A Talent. Cadence and Melody started at D&A Talent with their “Tiny Stars” Program in August 2012, when they were still 4 years old. Now they are 6.5 years old and pursuing their acting careers in California, thanks to D&A Talent! It is the real deal!

My son have been taken classes through D & A Talent for 5 months and he said that he loves everything about it. The kids and staff here at D&A are awesome. He does not need to attend every class but he makes me drive him there to every class and that says a lot in my book.

Connie and Heather at D &A are dedicated to connecting great talent with great opportunity. They are honest, down to earth, and helpful. They have a great eye for talent and you can trust their judgement if they say you’re ready to get started in this business or if they give you tips to work on and then you come back to audition at a later date. They truly have everyone’s best interests in mind. Our experience has provided a lot of opportunities and also a lot of fun!

My daughter Savannah signed with D&A 5 years ago. She auditioned for a local agency and was signed quickly after. Now she is 8 and still getting work. When she was younger she did tons of print work and a commercial for ShopNBC. She had taken classes and absolutely loved them when she was 3 and 4 years old. She stopped booking so we came back and she took she did the “Tiny Stars” Classes and booked a 90 foot billboard. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and really has helped Savannah get the skills that she needed to be successful over the last 5 years. I highly recommend D&A Talent to any parent that has a child or teen that wants to have fun and break into the business . The experience alone makes it all worth it.
— Jess, Parent
My daughter loves going to class at D&A, and she has been learning valuable skills. She’s always excited and ready to go and she comes out of class saying it went “awesome”. Small class sizes provide individual attention and teaching. Warm and welcoming atmosphere.

A year ago on this date I auditioned for D&A Talent!! Little did I know where it could have brought me in this past year.

Thank you for believing in my talent and accepting me into the D&A Talent family.”

I cannot even tell you how much our time at D&A has changed Sean…from a somewhat shy aspiring class-clown to a funny, Confident young man who can talk to anyone about anything; even his high school teachers have remarked on how great his public speaking abilities have become, and how truly comfortable he seems to be in his own skin
— Michelle, Parent
