We believe that constant practice breeds confidence and expertise, which result in greater success in the audition room, on stage, and on set. Therefore, our classes are offered on a constant, year-long schedule. Once an actor is enrolled they may renew their spot as long as they wish. Cycles are four weeks long and limited to 8 actors. All of our teachers have prescriptive methods to get to the heart of what each actor needs to tackle practical challenges in their work, and to discover new techniques to grow in their craft.
