Acting is our passion and we LOVE to teach, but the old adage, “those who can, DO, and those who can’t – TEACH,” does not apply. All of our instructors absolutely CAN and DO and HAVE but are also aware enough and compassionate enough to give back to the next wave of talent. We feel that this, without a doubt, differentiates us, our teachers, and our guest speakers, and is evolution away from the often, total self-consumption of this industry.
We focus on creating a safe and nurturing environment that allows a student to take risks of vulnerability and exercise imagination. We and our staff of professional actors/teachers strive to nurture each student‘s creativity. We are all dedicated to helping you develop a personal technique for on-camera television and film performances. All of our instructors are also active performers, auditioning and acting in professional environments — bringing home real world experience and a network of professional connections to share with you. We create opportunities to grow together as a group, attending premieres and festivals. Plus, two to three times a year, we bring in other professional industry guest speakers/instructors that will broaden your horizons, your network, and your mind. 2015-16 was a fantastic year! We learned from our fantastic FWAS instructors, and were inspired by a private workshop with Hollywood Actor, Abbie Cobb! 2016-2017 brought us great Masterclasses from A Cinderella Story’s Andrea Avery Ray & Quantico’s Jay Armstrong Johnson.
