“I am walking away with precious knowledge that I didn’t have before.  I really appreciated how invested Michael was in each of us and in our work and had no problem pushing us past our comfort zones. I was constantly learning, even when he was working with other actors. It was wondrous!”                                            – Bree Wasylenko, Series Regular “The Next Step”
