We’ll also talk about agents and managers. Headshots. Resumes. Demo reels. Contracts. SAG-AFTRA. The pros and cons of doing background work. And more.

Acting/Scene Study (In-person classes)
In this hybrid Acting/Scene Study class, students work with film and tv scripts to develop audition and performance skills.
Actors learn to dive into character and live fully in that character’s world. Our technique helps the actor understand and connect with all elements of a scene through deep script analysis.
During each 4-week cycle, students go through the actor’s experience from audition to character emersion with a scene partner.
