GREAT ACTORS start with a solid foundation. Acting Foundations is for kids and adults new to acting, who want to explore the world of on camera/film acting or those who simply want to build confidence/self-esteem skills. It’s also great for those who need an outlet for high energy or to learn focus. Acting Foundation also focuses on Vivid Imaginations, Teamwork and Listening skills

We strive to make Acting Foundations high energy and fun while helping draw students out of their shell, gain confidence and learn to use every tool in a performance. Students Acting Foundations are not necessarily serious career seekers--especially in the 4-17 age ranges. We are there to encourage, enhance self -esteem and open eyes to the wonder of acting. The adult class is an hour longer and the additional hour focuses on breaking down the walls adults have spent years building so they are more vulnerable and able access the wellspring of emotions inside them.

When an actor has an audition, he usually receives a script. Many actors go through the paces of memorizing their role, but preparation for their audition should go much deeper. And it all starts with analyzing the script for things like their character, motivation, goals, conflict, emotion and much more. Year one teaches students to explore their script and ask many questions for a better understanding and connection with the character they are playing. The year includes set knowledge, vocabulary, and direction so actors can quickly and easily follow instructions from directors and crew while on set.

Over the past few years, the industry has dramatically shifted from in person auditions to Taped auditions. In the Southeast, 95% of auditions an actor receives are done by self-tape. Even Casting Directors in New York and LA are shifting to this method of auditioning because it cuts costs, and Casting can see more people in the same amount of time. Thus, this shift has required actors to learn a completely new way of auditioning. Casting Directors require that taped auditions look and feel professional so that they, in turn, have a professional product to send on to Producers and TV Networks.

This second year in the Work Actor Track concentrates exclusively on developing the actors taped auditions skills so that each audition sent to casting can be a “wow” audition. The taped audition is one of the most competitive and important items in the professional actor’s world. To be successful, an actor simply MUST spend time learning the strategies and skills to a great taped audition.

The Conservatory Track-2years*  For SERIOUS ACTORS ONLY!

*Contract required to enter Conservatory Track for each year. Commitment required for 1 year at a time. Audition or Approval from TAS staff required to enter Conservatory Track.

This is a two-year program for those students who want to delve deep into acting techniques. While not a true conservatory program which immerses the actor into training for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for 2-3 years, our conservatory track will be a sampling of what one would learn if they were to go to a conservatory without spending the hours or the money. Our curriculum is comparable to what would learn in an MFA or conservatory program. It's excellent preparation for those teens/young adults who may be looking to apply to conservatory. It's also an excellent substitute for those who don't have the time or finances that a true conservatory requires. Conservatory track is great for film or theater actors.

Classes for ages 12-adult **10 and 11 year olds can enter the program with approval from TAS staff.

Conservatory Year 1: Sampling techniques of Meisner, Adler, Hagen, Stanislavsky

Many of Hollywood’s stars received training from conservatory or MFA type programs that teach the techniques of Meisner, Adler, Hagen, and Stanislavsky… all founders of great acting techniques. If you read the training background of many of our great actors today, you realize they spent a whole year learning Meisner, or a whole year studying Hagen.  Our conservatory program provides in depth study of 2 of the best techniques from each of these acting founders. The goal for students in this program is to learn which elements from each technique strike a personal cord and to develop those to work for them in bringing characters to life.

Adding more techniques to your tool belt deepens your understanding of what brings 3-dimensional life to a character set on paper. The more layers you add to your character, the richer and more interesting your performance will be. Practical Aesthetics will also be introduced in this year of the Conservatory Track.

Behavior and Movement: 2 years*: 67 weeks starting in August
For PROFESSIONAL ACTORS ONLY!

*Contract required to enter Behavior and Movement for BOTH YEARS. This is a two year class and for serious, highly trained actors.

Prerequisite: Conservatory Track or approval from TAS Staff

Classes for ages 14-adult

This price can be divided into as many as 23 monthly installments depending on start date.
Discount: pay in full-$1400 each year or $2500 for both years up front. No Refunds on Pay in Full price

Years 1 & 2

The Class is designed as a physical accompaniment to the intellectual training like Practical Aesthetics or Stanislavsky. The class will use aspects of Alexander Technique, Physical Destination, Viewpoints, Procedural Acting, Tadashi Suzuki, Michael Chekhov and more to aid the actor in releasing habitual behavior to better create a truthful and reactive physical character.

 

A strong physicality is crucial to the professional actor. Great training makes use of the entire instrument: voice, mind, and body. Actors must master every aspect of expression and one's intellectual analysis, vocal technique and text skills deserve focus but they should never come at a cost the actors attention to a strong physical presence.
