Kids Film + TV Acting Classes | Ages 8-11

Our goal at Biz Studio is to demand the highest level of performance from our students, while still encouraging their love of acting by balancing discipline with fun. We are passionate about good acting. And fun.

The Biz Difference
Biz Studio students have about twice the one-on-one time with faculty as students at other schools (max of 6 students per class). We have a legacy of training young actors who go on to work in the industry, *outstanding* instructors, and a beautiful downtown campus inside a working film & tv casting studio… Read More
 
Class Structure: Students are assigned a new on-camera scene each class, and expected to prepare like they would for a professional audition. Video from each class is posted online.
 
Teachers: Biz Studio’s teachers Michael Bean and Stephanie Halber are both working actors, so they understand what it takes to audition and book work.
 
Prerequisites: No experience is necessary to take a class, only a willingness to learn a professional skill in a professional environment.

CLASSES

Each week features a workshop with a local casting director (TBA; because of their busy schedules we confirm week-of).

TESTIMONIALS

 

Stuart Aikins
Stuart Aikins Casting Director: 'Twilight', 'Mr. Young', 'Level Up'
Biz Studio is like an acting boot camp for kids. They are energized with acting work, professionals from the business and the results are staggering. I often come away from working with a class having seen new and wonderful talent I bring into my audition room immediately. Michael Bean is brilliant.

Kids who study with Biz Studio all seem to book more work, and isn’t that the goal!”

Adrienne Gatzke Mom to Oliver, Age 10
Oliver says ‘I don’t want to have anyone else coaching me for this part except for Michael Bean cause he’s the best. Whenever he coaches me – I get the part’ Quite true!
