Our very own co-Creative Director & Acting Coach, Vernée Watson, in what can only be described as a wonderful achievement, took home the Emmy Award at the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards this past Sunday, May 5th 2019!! As if winning the Outstanding Supporting Actress wasn’t enough, let’s not forget that she won her 1st Emmy in 2018 . . making it two in a row. Simply incredible. As Ms. Vernée says, this type of an Award is recognition by her peers for the skilled work that it takes to elevate a performance from Good to Great. It is not about the number of Instagram or Facebook ‘likes’ or ‘followers’, it’s about the determination and drive to be the best that you can be and that only happens when you put the work in!! Ms. Vernée even managed a plug for The H.E.ART during her acceptance speech, for which we are eternally grateful. How many Performing Arts Schools can boast this kind of excellence in their teaching faculty?
Come be a part of our family and see what a difference can be made when you follow your ‘H.E.ART’!!
