The Gloria Gifford Conservatory for the Performing Arts (THE GGC) has officially been in existence since 1998, although Gloria Gifford (HALLOWEEN II, THIS IS SPINAL TAP, 48 HRS, TRACEY TAKES ON, THE NANNY,) started teaching children and teens in 1985 at various schools in Los Angeles. The GGC started teaching adults in 1998 with successful students like Max Greenfield and Kyle Massey among many others. Gloria grew up in NYC and graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a major in Political Science. She married her college sweetheart, had a son and after a few years as an Executive at Bloomingdale’s she went after her dream. Gloria made her acting debut on Broadway in a Shakesperian adaptation of The Merchant of Venice called THE MERCHANT and was discovered and cast opposite Richard Pryor in Neil Simon’s star studded, Academy Award winning CALIFORNIA SUITE. She moved to Los Angeles and has been starring on television and in feature films with side trips to star in London and Canada on stage.
