  • Attendance Refund

I attended Barbizon once back in 2000something. They took $800 deposit, and when I asked for a refund, the director ( who I remember was a really rude lady) said "You signed a contract which shows there can be no refund." At the time, I was young and left it there. But now I realized they scammed me. On top of the overpriced lessons and auditions that cost people ( really?) , they do whatever... Read more

I am writing this to raise red flags for anyone out there considering signing up for classes with this company. I have 3 daughters, the oldest 15 and the youngest almost 10. These two in particular have aspirations for acting/music and fashion design, respectively. My oldest daughter and wife were approached at a local shopping mall by a woman claiming to be a talent scout, falling all over... Read more

They call themselves school now in fear of being called scams by real agencies and real industry people. If you believe you or your kids have talent that needs to be recognized, be aware of schools like this and money grabbing artists alike. Always research a lot of about the establishments before you give any cent to them. There are so many reviews on this site that should be acknowledged by... Read more

Okay. I've went to Barbizon and yes, I agree with the amount it cost was a bit extreme but its price included a lot that most are too quick to judge negatively before considering. -the instructor isn't teaching for free -make up -books (yes, we received updated and useful books) -knowledge on things that you would still pay your child to go through if you needed see fit such as: --correct...

I signed up with them calling all the time after I met with a director and everyone is a director, there. I went to three class all the same, dates information present did not meet up to what was presented. I am uncomfortable being there so I expressed that for the service I paid I am not receiving any information that is applicable to me. Never I received a call to why I was not attending when I...

I know a person that was an interviewer some years ago for Barbizon Model Agency in Maryland. Funny thing he wasn't all he said he was, and was hired as some type of interviewer. His name was Andrew T. Hawkins, and was a total FRAUD, and used it to put the make on women. As far as I know, he may of even made that up about being an interviewer for the Barbizone Modeling Agency in Maryland.... Read more

Barbizon is definitely a rip off. If you took theatre in school then you already learned everything there is to know about acting. They taught me all the basics i already knew since middle school. And at the end for the photshoot omg dont get ne started the manager rushed the make up artists and they didnt do a good job one of the make up ladies wasnt even a professional she was a teacher at...
