Mission Statement


When Devon Odessa  started to pursue her acting career she didn’t have any Hollywood connections. Her show business naiveté resulted in some very painful and expensive mistakes. Devon’s goal is to give her students opportunities she never had: Local and affordable acting classes, from teachers who are nurturing and supportive. Learning from industry experts who have already experienced the challenges of starting and sustaining a career in Hollywood is a wonderful and rare opportunity.


When confidence is key, positive reinforcement is a must. Whether students want to pursue a career in the arts or in business, the tools Devon teaches in class benefit students in every aspect. She believes that students learn more when they are relaxed and comfortable, so class size is kept small to maintain a safe environment. What makes Hollywood Kids different is that the classes focus not only on education, but building confidence in one’s self, exploring one’s creativity, and above all else, enjoying the process!
