Intensives are a chance for students to see the kind of progress they can make when they are able to devote 100% to acting. Classes are based around the skills students need to audition and work on set. 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. Students are assigned a new script each day, and video from class is uploaded to a private page on our website. 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.
No experience is necessary to join, and all intensives are mixed level. We care about making sure that each student is appropriately challenged. 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 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.
