When you’re in Bryce Dallas Howard’s company, it feels like it’s the only place in the world she wants to be at that very moment.

“Bryce is a passionate, present, and giving teacher. She gives feedback with radical honesty and unfiltered advice on her personal experiences navigating the industry as a hyphenate.” — Student, Nine Muses Lab

“Bryce is simultaneously a warm hug and a shove off a cliff. As a teacher she will absolutely nurture and support you by sharing great advice, tools, humor and practical sh*t no one thinks to talk about. But she will also throw you into the deep end and force you to grow and stretch in ways you didn’t think possible. She’s not afraid to throw down the gauntlet because she knows you will pick it up! The difference between Bryce and other teachers is that Bryce really believes in her students.
