"People new to the business, take note of the find that is Cynthia Bain. In a field brimming with self-promoting blowhards and pseudo-psychologists, she is quite simply the clearest, most direct and engaging teacher with whom I've ever worked. Hardnosed insight without hysteria; passion tempered with PRACTICALITY -- did I mention that she is actually IN movies? A passel of 'em. MARK IT: this class presents an opportunity for you or your child that is NOT TO BE MISSED." 


Gavin de Becker
Bestselling Author The Gift of Fear / Security Specialist & Owner Gavin de Becker and Associates 

"I've been fortunate enough to observe some of Cynthia Bain's classes, and I am so impressed with the safe and creative environment offered at her acting studio. Teenagers want to experiment, and we parents dread some of what that can mean in these times - Cynthia's classes provide a place for our kids to be anything, everything - and yet come home safe, enriched, and encouraged. Cynthia Bain's Young Actor Studio has my highest endorsement."

These are serious acting classes that produce results in a nurturing yet challenging environment. The kids learn the skills to get them to the set and keep them there. Cynthia is so good she's like a great restaurant- you almost want to keep her a secret."

"Cynthia Bain is the most extraordinary acting coach with whom I have had the pleasure of working. She has provided our young actors with the tools and the foundation to grow and mature as actors."


Sharon Chazin Lieblein
Former V.P. Talent & Casting Nickelodeon
Independent Casting Director

"Cynthia is one of the top coaches when it comes to young actors. I can trust that anyone I send to her will improve 10 fold. I've seen her take a kid that really doesn't get a character and help them to turn into that character. Not by giving them line readings, but by giving them the tools to use to figure out where a character comes from and how they can make it their own. In addition to being a great acting coach, she really gets this business and makes sure that her students get it too." 


Howard Fine
Artistic Director
Howard Fine Acting Studio

"Cynthia Bain is an exceptional and dedicated teacher. Any serious young actor or actress would be well advised to take Cynthia's class."

Paul Lewis
Former Director of Development / Executive in Charge of Production at Nickelodeon

"Cynthia is the best performance coach I have worked with. She knows how to talk to kids and get the best out of them. She challenges her actors to be the best they can be. She's a great presence on the set and was invaluable to me on the show."


Harriet Greenspan

"Cynthia Bain is an amazing acting coach. She knows how to break down those walls that hold you back from reaching your full potential as an actor. I am always recommending Cynthia, her classes and her private coaching."
