ACTING CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Our Mission: To support today's students to work with them tomorrow. We want to build a strong, diverse, talent rich community. We encourage an open dialogue and have an open door policy for any questions or concerns regarding your training and career development.

We're proud to work with a diverse group of working actors that are passionate about the craft and just overall awesome people. Some work alongside casting, some are award-winning performers. Many write, produce, and direct, too! Our goal is to provide a variety of practical, healthy, and proven techniques so you're able to find what works for YOU.

These part-time Film/TV acting classes are held in our casting studios to give each student the opportunity to explore, fail, and learn in a space they'll also work in when they come to audition! 

Explore. Learn. Play. In a safe and supportive environment.
