Cancellations or change in teachers (including guest teachers or master classes) may be made at the last minute and students will be promptly notified by phone and email.


The Actors Training Center bases all classes on an ensemble mentality. It is our expectation that all students be on time for class and prepared to work.  If a student is absent more than two classes for any reason, they may not be allowed to participate in final performances and it may impact your ability to move up to the next level.

Student must be on-time to every class. Class can not truly begin until the entire group is present.

"THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your help.  We are zeroing in on our cast, and all 4 finalists for Colleen are girls that you sent us!" -- DAVID SINGER, PRODUCER/DIRECTOR
"I learned more in one class than in 7 years of acting."
"WOW!!! All I can say is Wow!’"
"I don't think I have ever grown in such a short amount of time."
"I got so much out of my improv class at ATC. It helped me with confidence, risk-taking, improv-abilities, and acting in general - the whole shebang."
"This improv class pushed my skills to the limit and it helped me to break out of my box."
"The time, caring and investment you put into each student is palpable. Thank you."
