Discover an organic, natural, and practical technique of acting in Atlanta
We do things completely differently from every single studio. Yes, we're online, but you can actually learn more this way. You can work on scenes through Zoom using a tripod, lights, and a cell phone, in the same way that you shoot self-tapes. Our classes focus on foundational technique as well as camera blocking. Learn the "G.U.T.S." method to understand the story of the "S.C.E.N.E." Utilize what we call the "B.E.S.T. C.R.A.F.T." system of artistically interpreting a scene into a fully alive compelling performance.
Is Atlanta a good place to start an acting career?
Atlanta is the perfect place to start an acting career. If you're a beginner, there are tons of independent opportunities to help you build your resume. If you're intermediate or advanced there are lots of professional TV and film productions shooting in Atlanta, Savannah, and around Georgia.
How to find affordable acting classes in Atlanta
You could study at Georgia State University and get a degree in acting.
If you love theater and have the patience for learning at the pace of a traditional institution, you could certainly get a degree in acting from a major university. Our online acting classes offer an alternative to studying acting at a traditional institution. It's cost effective and you can get started immediately with no experience. If you already have a degree or an arts education, you can refine it by learning our screen acting approach to fully round out your training.
The difference with our studio
We don't follow traditional methods of acting theory in our online acting classes for actors in Atlanta. Sure, our approach shares some of the basic tenets of acting theory that dates back decades. However, the art form has evolved a lot since then, and acting for the screen has become a storytelling medium that can benefit from a completely fresh approach. Created by working actors.

In-Person vs Online Acting TrainingWhile in-person training can give you actors and coaches to work with physically, distancing is still required to some degree. You're also limited in which coaches you have access to, and what actors you train with. Taking online acting classes on the other hand, gives you access to any coach in the world, and you get to work with actors from Atlanta, as well as New York, Los Angeles, London, Toronto, Vancouver, Sydney, Auckland and Dublin. Absorb accents from other actors, play scenes with people and train with coaches who can inspire you more than you thought.

The Best Acting Classes In Atlanta
This is highly subjective but from our testimonials the actors who train with us consider us to be among the best acting classes in Atlanta.
It’s important to learn from coaches that are actively auditioning and working in the industry. Ask yourself if the people you’re learning actor from are more like professors/teachers or are they coaches? One main difference is that a teacher/professor is focused on education and imparting knowledge, following the guidelines set forth, possibly by an institution. While a coach teaches you but also trains you. A coach sees your potential to be greater than them and guides you towards this, motivating you to achieve your full potential. A coach gives you more 1-on-1 guidance and focus than a teacher possibly can.
