Master Class


What is a Master Class?

Our Master Class workshop series is designed to provide students with advanced instruction from highly reputable industry professionals. Events are limited in attendance, so guest speakers can work directly with students and provide constructive feedback.

You don’t need to be a current Acting Studio student to attend, but Studio families are given early registration opportunities before workshops are opened to the public.

Please check the listings below or our calendar to confirm where each event will be held before you try to register.

Once they’re announced, Master Class workshops will be open for registration through the Studio Director system of the location where the event will be held. Please bear in mind that each workshop is typically held at only one or two studio locations—though we will vary locations between all four studios depending on speaker and space availability. If a workshop you’d like to attend isn’t held at your home studio, you will need to create a new Studio Director account for the location where the workshop will be held.
