Our Approach

We look at each acting student differently. Each student is unique and will learn the craft in a different way. We keep our class size down to 15 students which allows us to give each student the individual attention required to master their craft. Our training techniques are constantly evolving to keep up with the demands of the industry. We consult with casting directors, talent agency owners, industry leaders and filmmakers to enhance our curriculum. Our 36-week curriculum program includes industry on set simulation, improvisation for film, character analysis, monologue mastery, the screenwriter archetype series… just to name a few. Classwork is filmed then reviewed on a 70 4k monitor for training and showcase purposes. Film & Television is our focus, not just to train, but to get actors booked!
