Basic actor 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 kids who need an outlet for high energy or to learn focus. Basic Actor is also great for parents who want to develop kids with vivid imaginations!

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

Acting starts with a solid foundation. The Basic Actor Track works on building that foundation utilizing the tools of an actor: The Face, The Body, The Voice and The Imagination. Through series of fun acting games and exercises, students learn how to control each of their tools separately and then use them together to create believable performances. This track focuses on helping students really master these tools so they are ready to use them in later tracks as they learn more advanced acting techniques.

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 in New York and LA is shifting to this method of auditioning. 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*

*Contract required to enter Conservatory Track for each year. Commitment required for 1 year at a time.

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.

Conservatory Year 1: 32 Weeks starting in August
CONTRACT REQUIRED for full 32 weeks

Classes for ages 10-adult
Price: $1404
9 consecutive payments of $156
Discount: Pay in full $1200

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.

Your path down the Conservatory Track continues with study on additional techniques that are often a part of a curriculum in college and MFA programs. 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.

Years 1 & 2
Alexander Technique is rooted in the performing arts. It focuses primarily on changing habitual behavior. The Alexander Technique offers a clear and measured look into the basic principles that govern human movement. Learners will engage the body and mind to reduce tension in daily activities. The mind and body combination makes this training important for actors. The techniques can be applied through rehearsal routines, performances and even the lessening of nervous tension in auditions. We will focus on presence, performance anxiety, movement, speaking voice, connecting mind, emotions, and body.  Each lesson will incorporate reading and discussion, hands-on guidance, as well as activities to illustrate Alexander concepts. This class requires a serious commitment from each learner.
