Can I watch a class to see if it's for me?

Sorry no. In an acting class you make choices and learn to commit to those choices. If you are not sure if an acting class is for you, then wait until you feel it is. We are happy to talk about the classes if you would like to know more. Simply call 613-617-2219 for information.

Are acting classes just for people who want to be actors?

Not at all. Each class brings all sorts of people, of all ages and walks of life, together to be creative and learn. Of course some are interested in acting, but some simply want to try something new and exciting and some want to work on their confidence and spontaneity. 

Do classes involve rolling around the floor and stuff like that?

Absolutely not. Ever. We have a realistic, practical and social approach to teaching. Our job is to make you fall in love with acting, rolling around on the floor probably won't do that. 

What opportunities are available for actors in Ottawa?

Depends on your goals. Many of our students get involved in community theatre and act as a hobby. Some go on to professional work, but the reality is, if you are very serious about acting as a profession, you need to look outside of Ottawa. We are always here to guide and help whenever we can.
