Jackie C. says, "I really love this studio! I was so nervous to start ballroom dancing a year ago, but the instructors are all incredibly knowledgable, kind, and patient, and they have helped me improve my dancing skills immensely to the point where I am looking to start competing. They’ve really built a community that’s fun to be around! It makes the monthly social parties a blast to dance at and a great place to practice what I’ve learned in classes or private lessons. I like that there is a wide variety of classes from ballroom dances like waltz, tango, and cha cha to fitness classes like La Blast and Groov3. It really means there’s something for everyone. Overall, I can’t recommend this studio enough to anyone interesting in dancing. Whether you’re just starting out, looking for a memorable first dance, or wanting to compete, this studio is the place to take your dance journey to the next level. " Read more

Jenae D. says, "Dr. Turley was my vocal coach from age 13-18. He helped me improve my breath control, introduced me to age-appropriate repertoire, and greatly improved my confidence in singing. He is a laid-back teacher who will make you feel comfortable while pushing you to improve and achieve a high level of musicality. While he was my instructor, I made high school district honor choir 3 times, All-State honor chorus once, earned 4 I-ratings for vocal solos at district contest, and 3 I-ratings for vocal solos at State Contest. He also helped me audition and make it to my dream college for Music Education. He is a great vocal coach and I learned a lot from his teaching. " Read more

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

Dr. Turley is one of the most caring individuals that I know. He has had such a huge impact on my younger singing career. He was patient with me and gave my voice the individualistic attention it needed in order to mature. With his help I was able to get into the graduate school of my dreams as a performance major, as well as helping with my professional career. I could not have asked for a better vocal coach.
