Answers about Acting Classes at AFKT

We are excited you found us. At Acting for Kids & Teens we teach acting for TV/Film specifically.  Our coaches are all working actors, have studied acting and want to help kids. Our classes focus on learning acting skills for TV/Film and give kids a chance to be around other kids who are interested in the arts.

Do you offer drop in or trial classes?

At this time we do not offer drop-in classes.  We compare it to taking just one piano lesson or one French class, you do not really learn much and the experience can be a bit overwhelming. Students often remark that they were nervous the first few times but by the 3rd and 4th class they really felt at home and ready to explore the world of acting. We have so many options to try acting including one day workshops or acting summer camps.

My child really wants to be on TV and in movies, how do we get an agent?

Portland has a lot of great talent agents.  Each has their own submission requirements.  Here are a few:

Q6 Talent
Option Model & Media
Ryan Artist
Puddletown Talent
Actors in Action
Talent Model Management
Big Fish NW
Sports & Lifestyle Unlimited

A reputable agent WILL NOT ask for any money to register to be on the roster.  Agents get paid when their Talent books a job.

My child doesn’t have an agent, can they still submit for roles?

Yes! Casting directors will occasionally post for upcoming auditions on their website and social media.  A couple of local casting agents are:

Weeble Mountain
Simon Max Hill
Cast Iron Studios

My child wants to do voice over.  Do you have classes for that?

Yes, we offer one day to 6 weeks series for voice over.  These workshops cover everything to know about VO.  Check out our Workshops page to see when the next VO workshop is.  One thing to always remember….Voice Over is ACTING Taking one of our ongoing classes is highly recommended.
