“I always loved performing but didn’t know a great deal about the ins-and-outs of the industry or what was expected of a professional. ED5 International really allowed me to transition from being a student to a pro, which included a huge mental shift as well as improving my skills across the board. I absolutely loved the relentless rehearsals where you got to push yourself to your limits, especially in the lead up to graduation. If you’re thinking of doing the course, make the most of every single minute! It goes by far too quickly.” - Shannon O’Shea

The exceptional, world class owners, teaching staff, individual focus on each students success and overall wisdom has helped guide me throughout my performing career. It pushed me to levels I never thought I could achieve and left me confident and prepared for the real world. I'm so proud to be a part of the ED5 family.” – Michael van Doorn
