Purva Bedi has been a game changer for our 12-year-old daughter, Lilah.  

Purva's approach to teaching Acting Technique through The Prep has played an instrumental role in our 12-year-old daughter's artistic development, boosting her self-confidence and fostering a genuine love for on-screen acting. As an actor herself, Purva has a deep understanding of the craft, coupled with her patient and encouraging teaching style, has provided Lilah with a solid foundation. Purva creates a fun and engaging atmosphere, empowering Lilah to explore acting with confidence — which has already resulted in several callbacks and a short-film booking.  As parents, we are thrilled for Lilah to continue working with Purva and she is simply Lilah's favorite part of the week.
