Congratulations to #TKSActors 2022 Graduates!

June 10, 2022

Congratulations to our #TKSActor students on completing their Two-year Acting Conservatory Program!

We were overwhelmed with the support of family and friends who attended the ceremony to celebrate our graduates. The Graduation Ceremony was held at our studio space in Industry City located in Brooklyn, NY on June 5, 2022. 

The ceremony began with Terry introducing his family and welcoming all guests and graduates to our space. “It’s very meaningful to me to have everyone in this space today, and it’s especially meaningful as we haven’t had an in-person graduation for over a year and a half now,” says Terry in his introduction speech. “This is an interesting time — I am telling you, you haven’t seen anything until you have seen actors kiss with masks on! But you feel it, you really feel it.”

Guests speakers for the ceremony included Matthew Dudley, our TKS Faculty member who is Head of Voice and Speech, Kim Savarino, a graduate voted by her peers to speak on the behalf of her graduating class, and Jason Craig Harris who was our special guest speaker at the ceremony. Jason is a leading voice for organizational healing and societal transformation.
