Kids Film + TV Acting Classes | Ages 8-11

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), so regardless of experience level we can support/challenge each student appropriately. Having the best staff-to-student ratio in town means that our instructors can choose material appropriate to each student, and personally guide them towards reaching their goals. 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 at 788 Beatty St.


 

Classes are based around the skills students need to audition and work on set. Students are assigned a new on-camera scene each class, and taught how to prepare for class like they would for a professional audition. Video from class is uploaded to the website so you and your agent can track your progress. Students without a talent agent are included in our online showcase, and are regularly signed by local agents. Instructors Stephanie Halber, Emily Tennant, and Michelle Creber are all working actors, so they understand what it takes to audition and book work. No experience is necessary to join a class, and all classes are mixed level (i.e. a mix of new and experienced/working actors). Many actors study with us over a course of several years, working on progressively more sophisticated material.

Spring Break Intensives are a chance for students to see the kind of progress they can make when they are able to devote 100% to acting. Students can expect to have fun, learn about themselves, open up, build confidence, make new friends, and prepare for professional work in a supportive learning environment. Whenever possible we invite local casting directors in for a private workshop (TBA; because of their busy schedules we confirm week-of). Past intensives have featured Tiffany Mak, Judy Lee, Kris Woznesensky, Kara Eide, Michelle Allen, Candice Elzinga and Jackie Lind.
