I've loved singing and performing as long as I can remember! It wasn't until high school that I understood that my passion for acting and singing was strong enough to pursue it professionally. I graduated from Oklahoma City University with a Bachelor of Music in Musical Theatre. Shortly after I moved to New York City to pursue acting as a career. While in New York I worked Regionally, Off Broadway and on TV as an actor/singer. During my time at Oklahoma City University I was trained as a classical singer and studied Stanislavsky. When I moved to NYC, I continued my vocal training by focusing on the more contemporary, belt/mix sound that's b...

Jacqueline V. says, "Teresa Stranahan is a professional artist who provides the focus, hard work, and passion towards each of her students. In the beginning portions of our session, we sat down together and developed a clear set of goals and in-depth plan to reach them. She always valued my input by listening and getting to know me as a person. After we made a plan, we started meeting together on schedule days to work on monologues, auditions, acting exercises and researching. During these sessions, Teresa wouldn’t simply hand me a monologue she picked out prior. She asked me specifically what I wanted to work on and what I struggled with the most. From there, she would give me a variety of plays from various time periods. I would have to read the entire play to understand how the monologue fit into the plot. Afterwards, we would talk about my interpretation of the play and how I believed the monologue was trying to execute. She would always challenge me to dig deeper and to try new ideas. " 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

Samira will meet you right where you are! She structured the lessons based on exactly what I needed and where I was getting stuck. She came to lessons from a very grounded somatics place, noticing where I was getting stuck in my head, where I needed to ground in my body, and where I simply needed more practice.

Teresa Stranahan is an acting coach that sincerely wants you to grow as an actor/actress. Personally, her primary goal is for her students is to acquire the professional skills they need without the dependence of her in the future. She encourages her students to explore an expansive era of literature to familiarize theatre from period pieces to modern. Throughout our session, she taught me the importance of deep analyzing and the attention to detail. We would find different plays, read the entirety of the play, analyze it then beginning crafting my monologue performance. We would always focus on a certain “chuck” in the play and truly understanding the reasoning the character needed to say these words. We would read through plays forward and backwards, which has helped me extremely in my college theatre/opera education. I can go on for hours on how much Teresa has impacted my acting life. However, the most important aspect I learned from Teresa is the resilience of hard work and originality. She always encouraged me to put my own ideas into my acting and to own them confidently. To make choices and be okay with those choices not always working. However, I was always able to get up and try again; to grow as an artist. I am so thankful to have her in my life as not only a mentor, but as a friend who will always be their for me. Thank you, Teresa!

Mrs.Hickman is a real pleasure to work with. She keeps her word and makes sure that you are comfortable while learning. The curriculum that she utilizes is proven so you understand she is knowledgeable of the art form. The purpose of her lessons are to ensure you reach your goals whatever they may be. Most important of all there is no pressure with her and that makes the lesson a whole lot of fun. I look forward to my continuing lessons with Mrs.Hickman and if anyone else decides they want to learn the art form. They would be missing out if they didn't contact her first.

Mark challenged me to think outside the box and try new things. He also encouraged me to dig deeper and find unique and complex pieces that would challenge me as an artist. He brought up unique perspectives that I hadn't originally thought of / hadn't previously heard from other teachers.
