Teens Film & TV Acting Classes | Ages 12-17

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.

Confidence on Camera (Mixed Level)

“The actors who were training regularly as teens are the ones who are working the most in their twenties.” -Tiffany Mak, Casting Director (Siren, Sacred Lies, Dirk Gently, etc; 140 casting credits on IMDB)

Students learn the skills they 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. 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.

On Camera Audition & Scene Study (Audition Required)

“Dreams are free. Goals have a cost. While you can daydream for free, goals don’t come without a price. Time, effort, sacrifice and sweat. How will you pay for your goals?”-Usain Bolt, gold-medal winning Olympic sprinter

Designed for experienced performers looking for a more intense and focused training environment. Audition or invitation (i.e. returning students) is required. Class focuses on exploration, and building the actor’s depth and range. Class includes script analysis, on-camera scene study, audition practice, and technique exercises. Many actors study with us over a course of several years, working on progressively more sophisticated material. INFO+REGISTRATION
