That connection leads to transformation making us stronger, more compassionate citizens of the world, while opening audience's hearts and minds to the life experience of others.
The Studio: Our community begins with classes and private lessons for adults, youth and children in a fun, supportive, and challenging atmosphere where personal and artistic growth go hand-in-hand. It grows out from our studio into the community at large, with students creating their own work, being cast in local theater productions and independent films, all the way to scoring speaking roles on televisions shows like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Longmire, The Night Shift, The Messengers, Dig as well as countless Hollywood studio films.
Professional Actor Training: Students in our professional acting track engage in a series of classes that prepare them for work in any market. They are consistently attracting representation, earning call-backs and bookings in film and television in Albuquerque. Several students have taken what they have learned and made the leap to the Los Angeles market as well. Through our classes, they hone their skills and are introduced to industry professionals including agents, casting directors, local producers and directors who attend our quarterly showcases.
For Non-Actors: Many of our students come to class to exercise their creativity and bring a deeper level of mastery to their professional lives in other fields. Through the use of basic and advanced acting techniques, our students grow in their ability to connect and communicate in the present moment, in a relaxed, energized, and authentic way.
Classes for Youth & Children: Training as an actor instills communication and leadership qualities that will inspire children for a lifetime. We engage students with positive learning experiences that will build self-esteem and creativity. Not only do our students develop a further appreciation for artistic endeavor, but they also learn teamwork and communication skills that are vital to their development into young adults. Our teachers have experience working with kids who are new to acting, interested in acting, and those currently signed on with local talent agencies who want to develop their skills and confidence!
