Theatre of Arts Acting School is specially designed to get you in front of the camera and keeping you in front of the camera. We have created our classes to accommodate beginners, as well as experienced actors. Our proven immersion technique provides students with intensive training in all areas of stage, film and television acting.

Our program goes beyond the basics to combine the strengths of classical British drama training with the vibrancy and innovations of contemporary American practice. In order to achieve the best from and for our student actors, we limit our classes to average about 15 students. Furthermore, students are invited to participate in performance opportunities, often in the presence of casting directors, agents and other entertainment industry professionals.
