Summer Acting Program

Now enrolling. July 12th-30th, 2021

acting classes for teens

The top acting studio for kids and teens in Los Angeles offers a three week summer acting program in July. This program includes acting technique, voice/movement, on-camera work, improvisation, and the opportunity to work on a full production.

Our summer acting program is a unique opportunity for students to work in a conservatory style training, and fully immerse themselves in the work we do at the studio.

We emphasize how our students are a critical part of the storytelling process- whether it be for television, film, or theater. Students dedicate themselves to learning the craft of acting so that they may fully serve the story. For that reason, we are not focused on short-term acting tricks, or tips on booking a commercial. We want our students to develop a solid technique that can take them for however long they continue to act.

A virtual tour is a chance to meet one of our teachers (via Zoom), learn more about the work we do, and ask us any questions about the studio. Virtual tours are approximately 20-30 minutes long. We can schedule these for anytime Monday-Friday 10AM-6PM (Pacific Standard Time), or select hours on the weekend.

Is there a specific method you teach? While all of our work is Stanislavski based, we draw from a wide range of influences and approaches to guiding our work. At it's core, we want our students to be confident, emotionally connected, and "living truthfully in the imagined circumstances." Every actor has their own unique approach to get to this point, and our focus is to help each of our students find what works best for them. We draw from decades of experience to connect students with rich traditions, approaches, and perspectives to best help them make strides in their development. 

How are these acting classes different than school drama programs? We find that very often school drama programs are focused on productions. Our work is primarily centered on developing the young artist's craft through a series of technique work, and individualized script work. 

How is your studio different than other acting classes for teens? Our community and culture. The amazing parents, young artists, and teachers who've been here for over twenty five years has fostered an incredibly artistic, supportive, and creative space. People constantly note the joyous, creative atmosphere of our studio and this is directly attributable to the amazingly supportive group of students and parents. We cultivate this atmosphere by being very attuned to each individual student and their unique needs/challenges, and how to integrate that within a larger group framework.
