Bridget has taught my daughter in both group class and private coaching. Since studying under Bridget I have noticed that my daughter has gone into her auditions with much more confidence and poise knowing what to expect in the casting room. Not only has Bridget worked on auditioning techniques with my daughter, but she has helped her develop better articulation and physicality. Though only 5 years old, my daughter has already booked a feature film (My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2) and an episode in Syfy's 12 Monkeys. She was also in a professional stage production of "A Christmas Carol" this past December. And has recently been casted in Soul Pepper's Production of Henry Ibsen's, "A Doll's House"! Bridget is extremely knowledgeable about the industry as well as being a dynamic, personable and skilled acting coach and teacher."
“Bridget is an amazing teacher! She taught me how to do so much, like how to slate, improvisation techniques and so much more. Thanks to her, I am more confident in front of the camera and I have become such an amazing actress. I have been in a lot of TV shows and commercial like a back to school commercial and a show called "Motives and Murders". I never knew what I was capable of until I met Bridget. Whoever has her as an acting teacher, I know you’ll love her like I did.”
Just over two years ago I took my very first class with my favourite teacher ever, Bridget Ogundipe. When I joined her group class I was a very nervous person struggling with a severe anxiety disorder that prevented me from doing the things I loved. This was very hard on me so when I arrived at class that day, despite having hope for change, I was doubtful. I had tried and failed to leave my anxieties behind on many occasions. My first class was an amazing experience. I was in a new environment with strangers yet I felt so much more comfortable than I had been before. Everyone was so kind and welcoming. With the help of Bridget and my new found friends, I have become more confident in myself and my acting abilities. Bridget is confident, cheerful, funny, patient, and truly someone I would trust with anything. Both in the acting world and my personal life. Its not very often you come across a teacher with a true care for you and your success. It means so much to have Bridget to rely on, with knowledge and interest of everything you love to do.

“Bridget is a kind, considerate, and patient teacher. She introduced me to the world of TV and Film acting by teaching me how to slate, what to expect at an audition, and vocal techniques. I still practice "red leather, yellow leather". As we continued to work together, I felt confident that I could pursue a career in acting. I love comedy, and she recognized this as my strength. However, she did make sure that I practiced dramatic scripts that were more of a challenge for me and gave me great feedback. She's a wonderful teacher and is genuinely happy when her students do well. I got to be in Drake's Energy video, and I'm currently shooting an episode of a new TV show called "Nirvanna the Band the Show" airing early in 2017. I know she's proud of me. Thanks, Bridget!”
