Quaneice H. says, "I like the personal, intentional and individualized style of training that I’ve received even in the group/class setting. No student’s experience is the same, but I can attest to observing that all students are engaged and receive personalized attention and training. Not many coaches/teachers have mastered that, but it’s being being done here. During my training here, I’ve met and had the opportunity to learn from a few industry giants, movers and shakers - some of who have included myself and others in their projects. BobbyGene’s Actor’sClubhouse has played a major role in helping me to acquire representation and become a working actor." Read more

I just won a Tony and Obie for the show called Oslo last year playing one of the leads. I have been acting since I was a child. I have studied with great Michael Howard, Uta Hagen, Allen Miller, and Charlie Richter. I have developed my own way and system based on all the styles I have studied. I have appeared in hundreds of film and television shows. Goto to me IMDB page to see most of my work. I am an ethnic actor and was the first Iranian American to be a network series regular in 2003 for ABC, so I am an expert on teaching ethnic actors on how to get work including children.

The arts are my full time job! I generally supplement education with other activities such as music directing, theatrical performance, voice over work, accompaniment and more, but education is my main focus. My work often takes me to universities for adjunct work, or touring around the United States, performing and conducting charity events as well! During the week I work with around 40 students, individually, in private lessons.

Your Acting Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do acting classes cost?

Acting classes cost $25 to $65 per hour on average for group classes or $50 to $150+ per hour to hire a private acting coach. Prices vary depending on where you live and the instructor's experience and reputation. Acting studios that offer ongoing weekly classes typically charge $150 to $350 per month.

Acting courses and workshops can cost as little as $200 to as much as $2,800+, depending on the content, number of sessions, and the instructor's demand. Some acting workshops are short, 1- or 2-day intensive classes focusing on one aspect of the industry, while other programs last 4 to 8 weeks and cover several topics, methods, and techniques.

Most studios offer a free trial class so you can get a feel for the teaching style and decide if it's right for you.

Are online acting classes worth it?

Online acting classes are worth it if you want to pursue acting and are unable to attend acting classes in person. With online video calling platforms like Zoom and Skype, you can now study acting with the best in the industry from the comfort of your own home! Many reputable acting coaches—including those right here on Lessons—now offer online acting classes and teach the same methods and techniques that they teach in the studio. 

Do you need acting classes to become an actor?

You technically don't need acting classes to become an actor. However, acting classes can help you gain confidence, learn new methods and techniques, analyze scenes and scripts, and build new industry connections and relationships. Acting classes can also teach you about the business side of acting, which is as important as acting itself.

How long do acting classes take?

Acting class length varies depending on the studio and the type of class. Some studios have 2-hour classes, while others have classes lasting 3 to 5 hours. Depending on the location, acting classes may be offered in several formats, such as ongoing weekly classes, weekend intensive workshops, and training programs that can run anywhere from 2 to 8+ weeks.

What skills do you need to be an actor?

While the necessary skillset varies depending on the type of acting you pursue (think Broadway theater vs. TV commercials vs. film), all actors need a broad range of skills to portray the expressions and emotions of a character so effectively that they temporarily transport the audience to a world where the actor is indeed that character. This often involves:

  • Memorizing lines and stage cues
  • Analyzing scripts and scenes
  • Developing a character's emotions and physical expressions
  • Working with other actors, directors, and production crews
  • Adapting to unexpected changes and situations
  • Speaking clearly and adjusting one's voice to align with the character
  • Learning and developing different acting methods and techniques
  • Being comfortable in front of an audience or camera

During or first lesson Puja was immediately able to provide me with a framework for approaching a role in a film that required a lot of thought and action as well as dialogue. I look forward to more lessons to enrich my depth as an actor, to allow me to be the character and the character to be me - to be free in my approach as well as to work within the excellent structure that Puja provides.
