Meet Our Alumni

 

As the highest rated acting studio in the Triangle area we hold ourselves to a high standard of professional training with the best teachers, professional tapings with audition coaching & creating small studio productions featuring our Alumni. We also feel it is just as important to celebrate our Alumni and all of their accomplishments. We’re so proud of all of our actors at Back-To-One. We love it when our alumni book commercials, film, theatre and television projects and we wanted to feature them here on our website to be seen by Industry professionals and their peers alike. See the most recent bookings as well as the Back-to-One classes taken by our current & former talented students below!
