About the Acting Classes
now enrolling for September; now scheduling virtual and in-person interviews
Artistic Director, Jeff Alan-Lee, offers a weekly in-person acting class of technique and scene study for adults. This course operates under the premise that each student has a distinct artistic voice requiring it’s own unique process.
Jeff brings thirty years of experience working with actors of a wide variety of backgrounds, strengths, abilities, and needs. The key at our studio is helping you find the process which provides confidence, depth, and ultimately success in all your creative endeavors
One of the big benefits is that we don’t view your training here as limited to the once a week class. Many of our students are creating their own opportunities through creating short films, and other media project
