It’s imperative that NYC actors be familiar with acting for these popular genres as many of them film right here in New York City and provide job opportunities for young actors!

Actors will learn how to give nuanced, subtle performances and create authentic and believable characters that are featured in procedurals and serial dramas.

In this comprehensive course, we will cover the ins-and-outs of two popular genres of TV: Sitcoms (Comedic TV Shows) and Dramas, which include both Serial Dramas (a continuing plot that unfolds in a sequential episode-by-episode fashion) and Procedurals (a series that typically follows the work of a police force, detective agency, legal firm, fire department, or hospital). 

Students will not only learn the acting techniques needed for these contrasting genres, they will also learn the lingo specific to each!

Instructor: Voice-Over Actor TBA Soon!

This is an advanced program for students who are serious about their work and have taken performing arts classes at reputable institutions.

What better way to learn the art of voice-over acting than with a top VO actor in a state-of-the-art recording booth?

Voice-over acting is unlike any other type of acting. It requires an actor to make specific and original acting choices that are outside of the box using just their voice.

We’ll focus on two very different types of Voice-Overs: Big & Strong Character Choices (ex: Cartoons, Animated Films, Video Games) and Naturalistic Reads (ex: Commercials, Radio Spots, Promos)

Final Industry Showcase:
Class culminates in a final performance in the studio for loved ones and two scouting Talent Reps!

Already have rep? No problem! Take this class for its educational value!
