Acting On-Camera | Beginners Workshop
Our Acting On-Camera | Beginners Workshop is a 4-hour session for those brand new to on-camera acting, or revisiting acting after a break. It's offered once a month, typically on Friday evenings (EST). It's a progressive training workshop, meaning actors repeat the workshop at a discounted rate until they're ready to move up to Acting On-Camera | Core. Check the product page to see when our next session will be!
Acting On-Camera | Core
Our Core levels (1-6) are for actors with past experience, either stage or screen, as well as those who have completed our Acting for Beginners Workshop and are ready to move up in our training. These classes are typically held once every 2 weeks, rotating between Monday/Friday, in the evenings (EST).
Acting On-Camera | Essentials
Our Essentials levels (1-6) are for actors with past experience and training, as well as those who have completed our Acting On-Camera | Core levels and are moving up in our training. These classes are typically held once per week, rotating between Tuesdays/Thursday in the evenings (EST).
Intermediate, Advanced, Mastery | Scene Study + On-Camera Acting Technique
Actors in our Intermediate, Advanced, and Mastery levels all train together in a hybrid Scene Study , On-Camera Technique, and Audition Technique format. These levels are for actors with an Intermediate amount of screen experience or greater, as well as those who have worked through our Essentials levels. Actors at similar levels are paired together for scenework. There are no "terms" or "semesters." Actors can hop in at any time! These classes are typically held 1-2 times per week on alternating Sundays/Tuesdays/Thursdays.
Free Observation (Adults)
Observing a class for free is a risk-free way for you to experience our unique and grounded approach to screen acting completely free of charge.
Acting On-Camera | Teens
Our Teen Acting Classes are fully online 3-4 hour training sessions available to actors ages 14-18. Newer teen actors will be introduced to the basic concepts of performing through paired and individual on-camera coaching. Teen actors with prior experience/training will learn intermediate & advanced concepts and techniques to help evolve their craft and take them to the next level. Space is limited, and new class dates are decided based on availability, so be sure to act fast!
How to Get Started at The O.A.
Adults (18+) who are brand new to acting should take our Acting On-Camera | Beginners Workshop, a 4-hour session that will introduce you to concepts of film/TV acting and give you lots of time working on scenes. If you're lightly trained in theater, or returning to acting for a break, this is the place to start.
Adult actors with prior experience may purchase 1 credit and may be able to hop into a Core class -- our coaches will advise you on an appropriate category and level to continue at after that session! You'll progress through the five categories of our Acting On-Camera training program, beginning with the foundational Core levels, our moderate Essentials levels, then moving through mixed-level Intermediate, Advanced, and Mastery classes, which are a hybrid of On-Camera Technique, Scene Study, and Audition Technique. Each has multiple levels with 4 classes per level. Each class costs 1 credit. Mastery is intended as ongoing training with no level endpoint.
Class credits can be purchased either in packs of 4 for each level, individually, or in a number of larger quantities.
