FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 
1. What makes your school and acting classes different from any others? 

 

 Structured proven curriculum that transcends all mediums: film, TV, stage and commercials. Highly trained staff with required training program to qualify as instructors.

2. What are your qualifications? 

 

The owners share a combined 40 + years in the business. The founder was trained in Conservatory programs including The Stella Adler Conservatory, The New York School of Performing Arts and Boston University School of Theatre Arts. Her background includes work in stage, film and TV as a performer, director, stage manager and writer in New York, Boston, Seattle, Los Angeles and Atlanta.

3. Can I audit a class? 
 

The studio offers a well organized audit and tour event one week out of every month. To insure the privacy of the students who are working, we allow a guided tour of a small group to witness a small portion of a class. This allows time to view the student body and teaching staff, the energy, style and dynamic of the class and what type of lessons and format are followed. The visit includes a thorough Q&A with studio staff. Audit-Tours must be registered for ahead of time. You cannot walk-in without pre-registering. Contact us at info@thecompanyactingstudio.com to register or discuss either. 

4. If I go to your school how long will it take before I’m a working actor? 

 

That is a relative question and the answer is unique to the individual asking it. There is no set time for anyone. However the more committed you are to your training and your career goals, the higher likelihood it will happen for you faster.

5. Aren’t all acting classes the same? 
 

While many share similarities, a lot depends on the structure of the schools’ curriculum and the ability of its instructors. Imagine comparing colleges and universities that offer the same major. Indeed the overall idea and concepts may be described as the same, however you would always look deeper to compare curriculum, professors and the careers of the alumni before setting any of the school’s apart. 

6. Why is resume approval needed for some programs, but not for others?
 
The programs vary as far as the level of intensity, the depth of curriculum and commitment of the students involved. The resume is an indicator of the level of knowledge and experience the incoming student has and this is helps with program placement and is necessary to create and maintain a learning environment conducive to the training.

 

7. How long has your program been around?
 
We opened in August 1996.

 

8. Is acting "hard to do"?
 
Anything worth doing well is worth working hard for. You should experience a sense of personal challenge when you work as and towards being an actor. If you are not asking yourself to transcend your own limitations, then your success will likely be limited and short-lived.

 

9. Are you the best school in Atlanta?
 
A hint towards your answer may be, the one who is boasting loudly that they are the best, may need to boast to get your attention. The one comfortable with their abilities that they can sit back in confidence may very well be the best but doesn’t need to tout it.  

 

10. What does it take to be an actor?
 
Talent, skill and a sense of self.
