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.
“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)
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 Leanne Lapp, Emily Tennant and Stephanie Halber are all working actors, and 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.
