I thought I knew what I was doing in terms of acting when I came to Los Angeles, I had a degre in theater. And I had some early success, so this really made me think I knew what I was doing. Then I went to The Acting Corps and realized that I was OK at best, and I was not doing the things I need too. I wasted so much time before I found them. Thank you Acting Corps!
This school is awesome. Awesome teachers, awesome classes. even the other students were awesome. I am awesome too, in case you were wondering. AWESOME!
What I didn't know could fill a book... and that book was written by Stanford Meisner. Thank's to the Acting Corps, I know this now. I also didn't know a lot of other things that I learned in the Boot Camp Program there.
I really likes this place and I recommend them to all the actors out there who are looking for a school where they can work hard and learn lots of stuff. They make you work hard, but if you do the work, you will become a better actor, and hopefully be a star real soon. (=
I'm going to be on television someday, hopefully soon, and I will have the Acting Corps to thank. I though I knew what I was doing before I went there, but I was just "singing" the lines, by which I mean I had decided how to say them beforehand, and no one and nothing would change what I did. And it was so phoney. Now I listen and react, and it's better acting.
Trust this school, they have great teachers and substance. I like that they do not name the school after one guy, like many schools do, and then that's not even the teacher who usually teaches. At the Acting Corps, all the teachers I had were great, and there was no ego involved.
I did it all! I started with the low level Boot Camp I, then I went all the way through to the Professional Program, and I even took part in the agent showcase they put together and, bang! I got an agent. I am very happy with my agent so far, and I am very happy that I went to the Acting Corps!
I have been to many schools all over LA and in the OC, and the Acting Corps is one of the best I have experienced. I have even been to some of the very well know teachers that charge and arm and a leg... and I think the Acting Corps is better. I worked every day at the AC, whereas in certain other programs, that I will not call out by name, but you would know the names, I sat and watched for three quarters of the days I was "enrolled." The is total BS. I also loved that the AC was a Meisner based program, but they did not only do there, I know some school that teach Meisner don't even let you do scene work for a year, but at the AC, scene work was part of the class from day one.
If you want to learn how to act, this is the place to go in Los Angeles. They offer classes that will be helpful for new or seasoned actors. I started out with their Boot Camp program which is a crash course in Meisner, but they do have more advanced programs for those who already know a thing or two about a thing or two. There are classes in the day and in the evenings. Also at this location, tit's in the valley, so parking is easy and for me, it was quite close.
If you are interested, drop by and check out the place!
As an foreign student I'd highly recommend this school. My Los Angeles experience, even as an English speaking Canadian citizen, was that difficult. There are just so many damn actors here. It was like banging my head against a brick wall. Then after I took the classes at The Acting Corps, and I got an agent, and while I am not famous in any way, I am well on my way to being a working actor.
