Molly T. says, "Corrine is awesome 👌! She is a great listener and very experienced. Her recommendations suggestions and advice are always appreciated and delivered in a sensitive mindful manner. It was so fortunate for me to find a Method Acting coach at this particular time in my life's journey. I have learned so much in 4 weeks. As a matter of fact I learned more from Corrine in my first lesson than I would have learned at Face Foward Talent agency in 6 months. Thank you so much Corrine for your patience and sightingfulness." Read more

I am a professionally trained Dance instructor, currently teaching in Orlando ark. I’m looking to share the love and knowledge of dance as well as teach focus and discipline. I teach a variety of classes with technique and precision to ensure the best dance experience. I currently keep up with professional training and have many performance opportunities I like to extend to students as well ✨ I work with mainly children ages 5yrs - 16yrs old. It’s wonderful to see them experience freedom and passion while dancing. The classes are challenging yet fun with no judgement. We leave each day happy and satisfied ready for the next week💕

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

Everything! I have had the pleasure of knowing Alyssa for over five years. She teaches my daughter with Down Syndrome violin at home. Alyssa is professional, patient, and caring. She has helped my daughter to achieve an amazing level of competency. My daughter has auditioned for our state orchestra for the last three years. Not only has my daughter achieved a perfect score for every audition, but she is the first in our school district, in her program to ever audition. I absolutely feel this is due to Alyssa. Her knowledge not only of music, but of how to teach children is incredible. I recommend Alyssa whole heartedly!
