AAS is a training facility for working professionals and a testing ground for new talent to see if they’ve got what it takes. With five studios, over 30 resident instructors, close to 8000 sqf and 10 000 actors, we offer classes, coaching and self-tape services pretty much every day, all year round. The studio's been around for about 14 years and we’ve helped launch some pretty cool careers including Miley Cyrus, Nina Dobrev and Devon Bostick (just to name a few). What’s even cooler is that most of the stars that we’ve worked with had virtually no formal training before they started with us.
The studio's got a pretty cool community + network for everyone in the industry. When it comes to industry related services, there’s really very little that we don’t do – classes, coaching, self-tapes, seminars, oh, and did I mention we’re also a casting facility?
We’ve got a lot of different classes and levels for pretty much everyone - whether pre-teen, teen or adult, our actors get to work with instructors who work all the time in film + TV. We believe that our actors should work with ‘working’ actors. It would be kind of crazy to take direction from someone on how to play the guitar if they themselves had never played the guitar – just sayin’.
All classes + one on ones’ at AAS are very specific and everything you do is documented on SD Card for you to take home and review – if you are taking film + TV classes, best that you be working on-camera. I mean, it’s like taking driving training classes without ever getting into a car. At AAS, we believe in training for the purposes of work, not education. Yeah, sure, you learn stuff along the way, but we want to see our actors doing it and getting paid to do it.
