In all programs at the Art of Acting Studio, from the future professional conservatory to seasonal workshops, students receive a level of instruction that is unparalleled. The Studio’s world-class faculty teaches in all programs, and class sizes are always limited. In addition to training, all students can participate in a myriad of extracurricular activities, including poetry readings, guest lectures, jazz concerts, and classical music concerts, affirming the Studio’s mantra that “Growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous.”

Professional Conservatory

The Professional Conservatory is the heart and soul of the Art of Acting Studio, the culmination of the studio’s vision for complete acting training. In this program, students will gain tools and techniques to better engage their imagination, to analyze text deeply and accurately, and to create rich, specific characters.

Workshops

Each season, part-time workshops are offered for the actor with a busy schedule. Programs range from introductory courses that build a foundation of skills to advanced master classes for the more experienced actor.

AOA Insider

Your link to the business world.  Through the Art of Acting Studio’s targeted, and highly selective industry workshops, students gain exposure and education about the business of acting with the industry’s leading professionals.

Summer Programs

The Summer Intensives, which last 6 to 10 weeks, offer valuable training for actors of all levels. The center of the Summer Programs is the Summer Conservatory, which approximates a semester of conservatory training, teaching the principles of Acting Technique, Scene Study, Movement and Voice & Speech.

Every summer the Art of Acting Studio brings students from New York for a Business of Acting Intensive headed by Ron Burrus that introduces these actors to Los Angeles. Students take classes in acting for camera and audition technique, and participate master classes taught by industry professionals. The culmination of this program is a showcase.
