Film and Television Classes - "Acting for Camera"


In this class, students are exposed to the critical knowledge needed to navigate through Vancouver's acting industry and be shown the skills necessary to increase the chances of success as a working actor/actress. Using scenes from various films and television shows, students will learn the basics of acting, how to adjust for the camera, audition process, and the ins and outs of being on-set.


All of our instructors have experience in the industry, and are excited to share their knowledge and experience with a new generation of actors.


Our program is a mixture of acting workshops, audition prep, and scene study. Our goal is to help future actors develop their abilities, and learn about all aspects of the industry.


The goal of the new program is to allow students with serious aspirations of working in the Film Industry to challenge themselves and get used to the expectations of working as a professional actor in Vancouver.


Our classes will still be primarily separated by age, but will additionally be split into ‘Level 1’ and ‘Level 2’ classes. Students who wish to join the Level 2 class must have permission from the teacher before they are scheduled. Permission will be given based on past class experience or one 30-minute trial lesson with the teacher in question. After the trial, they will give their recommendation for what Level would be the best fit for the student.


If you would like further details on our Level 1 and Level 2 classes, please contact us!


Please note that all our group classes run weekly from September – June with a short holiday break in December/January.

Adult Acting Classes


Our Acting for Adults class is an acting for camera class geared towards students out of high-school* and beyond who want to further their training.


This class was created to help students push themselves as actors, as well as inform them of the realities of the film industry and prepare them to pursue work in Vancouver or beyond.


The class will also cover things actors should know about working in the industry; branding, headshots, interviewing with agencies, good set-iquette, and more. Assignments will be given for students to complete outside of class as well.


We are looking for students who are dedicated to learning and are willing to put in the work.

Please contact us today if you think this class is the right fit for you!


* students who are still in high-school and serious about working in the industry may still apply, but admission will be subject to an interview with the teacher. The parent/guardian of students under 18 will have to provide written permission that they understand the content of scenes provided for students will be mature in nature.

Drama Classes


Work from the ground up to be the best performer you can be! Students will learn the basic building blocks of acting: proper voice technique, character building, using the space onstage, and accessing emotion. Using excerpts and scenes from various plays, students will work towards a short performance at both our Winter and Spring Recital.


We do not take in new students for the months of November/December or May/June as group performances for our recital have been cast and are in full rehearsal.
