A Magical place. Bonus points to anyone that gets the inside joke there in reference to my user name. But in all seriousness, I really do adore this school. It was hard work, but I loved it. There were days that I left class feeling like crap, days that I failed. When my scene did not come out as I had hopes, or when I just wasn't there during Meisner, but by the end, I left feeling great. There is always room for improvement, but not as much room as there used to be! Now that I am no longer in class, I miss it! I don't know what to do with all my time! Between the actual classes and meeting with my scene partner, it's a lot of work, but the pay off was worth it. Great teachers, great facilities. The office staff was nice and helpful. I guess that's all.
I loved this school, so I feel I should write something rather then just clicking the thumbs-up. Great teachers, great classes, the location is nice. I worked every class, none of this watching other people Bull$h!t. On my feet, working every single class. I feel this school does not trade on it's name (or the name of the teachers), but just has a solid program that will teach those who want to learn.
I came from Iowa to California, and I ended up at The Acting Corps after being in town a few months. I count myself among the lucky that I did. I loved the program, and while I know that I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn, I don't think I could have gotten off to a better start.
I'm around thirty years old, and I was a latecomer to the acting game. Some of my friends said that I was too old, and I must confess that I was a bit out of place with a class full of younger kids. But I learned was that Having a could years of the others set me apart a bit, and talent is talent. I learned so much at the Acting Corps, and in the month and a half that followed my time there, I have been booking like a madman. I didn't really have any classes before them, so I can honestly say that I have them to thank for all my success.
Yes, I liked them very much. No, I do not have anything negative to say. Yes, you should check them out. i am not one to write a massive paragraph about my experiences, but in appreciation of the great training they gave me, I will do my best to pitch them to the YP readers.
Their program is built upon a Meisner base, which I had been exposed to before in a small way, but I hadn't really gone there until I went to the Acting Corps. I feel it really changed how I saw things. And unlike some Meisner programs, they also do scene work, so it's not just theoretical, and they do it from the start, week one. And though Meisner is great, it's not with it's all about, they have mixed in all sorts of other tools into the scene work classes, including Michael Chekhov.
As I said, I am not one to pontificate, so I think I'll leave it at that. Check them out.
I loved my experience at the Acting Corps, they're great! 5 stars for sure!
Great teachers, great program. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to get good quick.
This is an awesome school. I thought I was a good actor when I went there, but I quickly realized that I wasn't as good as I thought. After taking the Boot Camp 1 and Boot Camp II, my acting is so much better and I have booked an agent, and then booked sever good roles. At this rate,m I'll be a working actor in no time!
