I took my 12 yr old son to a radio call out for IPOP. He was the only kid out of 15 they were sending straight to LA for nationals plus they gave him a 3900 scholarship for training. On last training session the director Denise told me in email I have to pay for regionals and have the 6800 for LA payed by June 14 or they were dropping my son.He doesn't go to LA till Jan 2 so why do I have to pay...

I just want to get this off my chest. JPR Southeast came to Columbia and destroyed my daughter's ambitions.Just because we couldn't come up with money that day, at that min. You should be ashamed for destroying a 13 yr old's dreams. No wonder you have all of these negative reviews. Get a life!!!! Add comment

We heard the ad on the radio that they were holding auditions so we went along along & without researching the company I signed my daughter up for a 4 week workshop where she would cover the basic skills for acting & modeling. In hindsight I should have asked more questions, they word it so you think they are representing & actively looking for work for your child but in reality they... Read more

I'm sure JRP classes are adequate. Many places offer acting classes. But, they really won't represent anyone who doesn't train with them, thereby giving them lots of money. If they were truly looking to represent fresh talent, they would not make that a caveat. There are talented kids without the funds to take classes and JRP will miss out on those. Ironically, those tend to be the kids who are... Read more

She is almost 29yrs and has only been to a few classes and that was in the few months of paying. I tried to schedule classes only to find out that the Elk Grove ca. Office was closed down, so we had to... Read more

I enrolled my daughter in JRP courses and just completed the regional showcase 5 days ago. One course costs $1000 and the "career level" costs $5900 (we were career). My daughter was screened by 3 talent agents and was chosen by them to compete at a national level in California. The national showcase will cost $7900, not including airfare or meals. My daughter has been contacted by one of the... Read more

My son auditioned in panama city, florida and was told to pay $1000 dollars to perform for Ipop it was a little stage and they said that there would be a lot of judges to select the ones to go to California, but no one showed up.

If this is a school why haven't any of the parents who paid heard anything from these people? During the so called showcase there were kids who chose to sing and it was clear these kids did not have any talent (I did not day this to them, that would have been too nasty). They took the money from them and ran. I refused to pay the full amount until I saw what was really going on and feel that we... Read more

John Robert Powers is not a local business to New Mexico. There are many complaints about this company traveling to New Mexico, Santa Fe and Albuquerque selling very expensive classes and trips to Hollywood, they take your $$ and leave you with no service as they have no office in New Mexico. Tere are other local firms that will offer local service, and get you prepared for New Mexico based... Read more
