- development through live performance!

At Actors Training Studio we believe that nothing progresses an actor further than live performance.  Whether you are a complete beginner or have some experience, the challenge of bringing your work to life in front of even a tiny  audience while learning to cope with performance nerves, develops performance skills and builds self-confidence like nothing else.
