Young Actors Space

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Young Actors Space (YAS) was established in 1979 by Diane Hill Hardin and Nora Eckstein in Los Angeles. This team was the first in the entertainment industry to establish a performing arts academy for young, working and aspiring actors.[citation needed] It is well known for being one of the best acting schools for youth in Los Angeles.[citation needed] Patrick Day took over the school in 2007 with his associate Gilmer McCormick.
