About:

CESD is one of the nation’s most prestigious commercial, voice-over, print, digital influencer, theatrical/TV-film and young performer talent agencies and a dominant force in our industry. Based in the media capitals of the world, New York City and Los Angeles, the company’s unique dimensions include offering performers complete representation for on-camera and voice-over commercials, digital, print/fashion, beauty, dance, animation and gaming, hosting, puppeteers, promos/trailers/narration, and television and radio affiliate marketing.

CESD also hosts an industry leading Theatrical/Film-TV Department representing many diverse performers including some of the top young stars in America. And for over 35 years its Young Talent On-Camera, Print and Voice-Over Departments have represented child and teen performers for commercials, animation, and print businesses.

On January 1, 2005 longtime CED executives Ken Slevin and Paul Doherty became partners and Cunningham-Escott-Slevin-Doherty Talent Agency was created.

CESD originated in Hollywood as Cunningham & Associates, founded 50 years ago by the dynamic legend Bill Cunningham. In 1971, T.J. Escott joined the firm and brought it to nationwide prominence with style and integrity. Cunningham opened the company’s New York City office in 1971. Ken Slevin brought his vibrant and energetic style to the New York office in 1982 and has led it to great success ever since. Paul Doherty came to the firm in 1989 to run the agency’s powerful voice department creating a new template for customer service and the marketing of talent.

Cunningham and Escott are retired. Slevin and Doherty lead the agency with Ken as its CEO/President and Paul as its Secretary-Treasurer.

CESD has thirty-seven agents in its two offices. It continues its innovative industry dominance through the multitude of changes brought on by the digital world. Its leadership promises the thoughtful guidance for its clients and first-rate service for its customers that have come to be industry standards.

VTS is a school for both those looking for serious training to progress to vocational college and those who enjoy dance and want to have fantastic opportunities.

My daughter has been with Claire since she was 5 and has had great training and amazing opportunities to perform.

I would recommend VTS to anyone that is looking for a school that nurtures and feels like a real family.

My daughter has been a student at Valentine Theatre School for 6 months. During this period she has been given excellent tuition to help to improve her technique, balance and physical health. I would recommend this school to any parent who is considering a dance school for their child.
