If you haven’t attended an acting class before, we’re sure you have a lot of questions.

“Are there good acting classes for beginners?”

“I’m already talented. What will an acting class teach me that I don’t already know?”

“Do you need to go to acting school to become an actor?”

Whether you are new to acting, or have performed before, we believe joining an acting class will be one of the best decisions you will ever make.

Remember, there is much more to acting than just delivering your lines.

Acting is a special talent and ability to break down scenes and your character’s mannerisms, dialogues and interactions with other characters, to play out an entertaining scene for your audience.


Our Foundation acting class is the perfect place to really hone the fundamentals and basics required to be a great actor.

This acting course will guide students through two important aspects of acting, breaking down a script and improvisation. While beginning to delve into the Meisner Technique.

During these classes, you will build upon skills learnt throughout our Junior Jam acting class. The class is broken up to two parts the first half of the class is built around improvisation techniques and fun engaging exercises. The second half of the class is weekly script work. Each week the students get a new script that builds in complexity over the course of the year adding new elements.
