The music, and dance take you to the past, and bring you to the present with a charming and seductive All About That Bass dance number. The comradery... More

This Theater Performance and Arts center in Los Angeles is exquisite should be listed under the #1 things to do in Los Angeles. The night of the black cat was a night of comedy, burlesque and simply a wonderful musical evening of song and dance. Very interactive shows highly recommend it.

The Golden Box with Michelle Danner is a class every actor/actress should take. During this class you find out what your emotional triggers are, why some choices are more powerful than others. The golden box does not only benefit actors but writers/directors/producers as well. You learn how to create characters that are layered and more in depth. I recommend the... More

I came to meet with Michelle Danner at her informational session on Wednesday because of her reputation and because she has worked with a slew of other actors i highly admire. I was placed on a wait list for her Auditioning for film and television on camera which i thought would be a great way to increase my booking ratio.... More

I'm honored I had the privilege to take both Michelle Danner's Golden Box workshop and her Acting for the Camera class, because I really wanted to receive her acting expertise. As an emotional person, I've always struggled with being an emotional actor; it's hard for me to be constantly emotionally ready. After doing my scene the first time, Michelle could... More

Insightful and inspiring.! The two words that best describe Michelle’s Golden Box class. Edgemar is easily the best acting school in Los Angeles (LA). She has perfected putting actors in touch with the tools they already have to be successful. I laughed, I cried and I feel I walked away better equipped and ready to tackle my next audition. It...

"One While Crow" is the second play I've seen at the Edgemar, "The Rainmaker" was the first. The theater is surrounded by fun places to eat, so one-stop entertainment can happen here. There is paid self-parking at the theater, or free parking in the residential area just a block north of the theater. The staff are very friendly, the restrooms... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
