Gabrianna's mom wrote the following review about her experience at John Casablancas:
"In all honesty, I was very skeptical of JC when I first signed my daughter. I knew nothing about this industry and was worried it was a scam. I thought if someone in this industry wanted money from you that it wasn't legit. That whole statement couldn't be more wrong, in this case. I quickly learned that JC is a school and not just any school, a highly respected school by this industry. And just like anyone in any career, it is curial to attend classes and seminars to help further and polish your skills. I also quickly learned that JC is an investment in my daughter's future and this was the best decision I could have made to start my daughter's career and helping her achiever her dreams. My daughter loves JC and I love watching her grow and polish her acting and modeling skills. The directors, coaches, and instructors are amazing. They show true professionalism and true genuine care towards her. My experience with JC has been nothing but positive. Thanks to JC, my daughter now knows how to present herself at an audition with confidence and poise. Because of JC she now has several offers from highly respected managers and agencies from Chicago, New York, and LA. We are currently looking forward to spending several months in LA this winter. I am internally grateful to JC for everything they have done. Thank you JC!
Sincerely, Dana Alfano" (Mother of Gabrianna Alfano)
