Enzian’s Youth Acting Program has a mission to ignite the heart with art! We are committed to offering a creative, challenging, nurturing and professional environment that encourages children and teens. These classes will include teachings on storytelling, developing characters, music and movement, improvisation, industry vocabulary, auditioning, relaxation and articulation exercises, scene partner work, emotional awareness and body language, working with the camera, public speaking skills, and building self-confidence.
Enzian has teamed up with the Positive Flow Foundation in historic Eatonville to offer families of diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds full scholarships to the Youth Acting Program. All Youth Acting scholarships are made possible by the Universal Orlando Foundation.

Enzian is proud to have Sheri Kebbel as head instructor for this program. Sheri has created acting and visual storytelling clases for children and teens for over ten years in Florida and Los Angeles. She encourages students to ignite their artistic passion; to commit to a journey of self-discovery that is rooted in empathy, understanding, truth, humor, and purpose.
She also created the Young Professional Actors Group (YPAG) for young professional working actors most of whom are now represented in Los Angeles with top boutique level talent agencies working in television and film. She is also the owner of Say True Films production company whose recent documentary, Dan Behind His Eyes, received recognition with the American Psychological Association in Washington D.C., the 2014 Orlando Film Festival, and the 2015 Florida Film Festival.
“I can’t say enough about Sheri. She is an amazing acting coach and person. I have the utmost respect for her. Not only has she made me a better actor by building my confidence and craft, but providing me with a fun, loving environment to grow as an individual. My acting class with Sheri is the highlight of my week.”
“She has an eye for talent and really connects with young actors to bring out their inner strengths… In short, any child that can work with her or in a program that she has developed is very lucky.”
Lori (Austin Abrams)
“Sheri is an empathetic and intuitive acting coach who is wonderful with kids. Her ability to recognize and nurture talent is amazing… She is also very well-connected and well-respected both in Florida and in Hollywood.”
