While many of the kids training at the studio are working actors some are brand new! Our Ongoing Classes and Workshops, led by professional Acting for Kids & Teens Coaches, focus on TV, Film & Auditioning. From intro level work to master classes, students are trained in a variety of techniques and styles. While our Studio specialty is Meisner, we also incorporate Suzuki, Sense Memory, and Improv techniques into the student experience.

Our coaches spend quality time consulting, mentoring and walking kids and parents through the professional and emotional world of being an artist. All of our kids are held to a high standard professionally as well as in their personal lives and academically. Our Portland acting program, backed by a supportive community of creatives, also helps our students acquire life skills that they will carry throughout their entire lives.
