Our Approach

Each student is unique and learns in different ways. That's why we offer a myriad of techniques, classes, workshops and opportunities to develop their talents.

We keep our class size small, which allows us to give each student the individual attention required to master their craft. Our training techniques are rooted in the foundations of acting and our instruction is constantly evolving to keep up with the demands of the industry. We consult with casting directors, talent agencies, industry leaders and filmmakers to enhance our curriculum. Our 36-week curriculum program includes industry on set simulation, improvisation for film, character development, , Meisner technique, script analysis and much more. Classwork is filmed then reviewed on a 70 4k monitor for training and showcase purposes. Film & Television is our focus, but we want to produce educated and professional actors that will book the job and prove they're the cream of the crop in this competitive industry.
