Jos Alejandro R. says, "I am writing this testimonial to express my sincere appreciation for Debra’s outstanding work as my acting teacher. I decided to take acting lessons with Debra, not to become an actor, but to improve my overall English communication skills, networking skills, interpersonal skills, presentation skills, business communication skills and my interviewing skills. Spanish is my primary language and English is my second language. I worked with Debra while I was in Boston, MA as an exchange student because I wanted to work on refining my English. In all our sessions, regardless of the time of day, (when I went back to University in Columbia there was a time zone difference) Debra was precise in outlining the topics that would be covered in the beginning of each and every session and she would explain the next steps that we would be taking at the end of the session for the next appointment. This demonstrates not only her commitment to each individual session, but also her dedication to the overall curriculum and connections of what she intended to teach me while we worked together. In addition to her professionalism and rigor, she is also a person of great trust who is kind, clear, compassionate, and incredibly insightful. Beyond the topics that we covered in our 10 sessions, I also sought her advice on many personal and professional matters that related to business while communicating effectively in English. In every session Debra always helped me. I want to reiterate that Debra is a very trustworthy person and a consummate professional. She is an elite acting teacher with a comprehensive methodology. Her reputation, transparency and integrity are of the utmost importance to her evidenced by her offer of one FREE acting class. After taking one FREE acting class with Debra, I felt very comfortable about working with her and very confident about making the investment in myself. Every penny I spend on my training with Debra has been well worth it, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with such a talented acting, public speaking coach and life coach. In fact, Debra not only met my expectations she exceeded my expectations. I am eager to have the opportunity to continue to work with Debra again sometime in the near future." Read more

I love seeing my students apply what they have learned with me. It's when they get that "a-ha" moment that I know I've made a difference. I've been given the gift of teaching and have applied it in several areas to help students overcome obstacles and achieve goals.

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

Reviews for Lowell acting classes

Recent success stories from people in the Lowell area.
Ezrin F.
Words can’t describe how much Debra has helped me. I have only been working with her for a few months and I already booked a paid acting job. She is patient, observant and gives positive feedback. But she won’t hesitate to show you how to do something better. Debra’s credentials, certifications, range of experience, and the decades of dedication to the success of her students really stood out to me. She saw the potential in me and that meant the world to me. It really boosted my confidence. She took a chance on me, just like how she had stood out to me as, in my words, the perfect instructor. I am very happy that I had the opportunity to work with Debra for my professional acting training. I can’t recommend her enough.

The instructors and volunteers are all friendly and a joy to work with! It’s incredible to watch the kids AND adults as they start to tackle moves they never thought possible before and to be able to watch them blossom and grow into tiny or not so tiny dancers along the way! This studio is definitely recommended if you are looking to learn in general or learn more in the dance or theatre realm! Low income or not, this is affordable to all and they will work with you according to your budget!

my 10-y-o daughter had her first lesson with Sara today. Sara is amazing! She is so warm and playful and creative and my daughter felt instantly comfortable with her and she learned a lot in just one hour. As a parent of a dyslexic child, I feel so grateful that Sara has experience working with kids with special needs and it shows in her patience and encouragement. And Sara has been wonderful about communicating with me. I couldn't recommend her more!
