$75 for a Four-Week Beginning Acting for Non-Actors Class ($275 Value)

Acting for Non-Actors gives the stage-curious a taste of the craft in fun, supportive classes. 90-minute sessions delve into improv exercises, basic camera work, and scene work, aiming to build onstage connections, staying in the moment, and shedding self-consciousness. The class is designed to accommodate absolute beginners, though it is slightly more challenging than Non-Acting for Non-Actors. Check the schedule for available sessions.

Bay Area Acting Studio

Trained by legendary acting teacher Sanford Meisner, Christy English Wioncek opened the Bay Area Acting Studio to teach a new generation of actors how to—in the words of her mentor—"live truthfully under imaginary circumstances." Her stable of equally Meisner-steeped instructors leads classes including introductory adult courses, intensive courses for working thespians, and children's classes for young'uns looking to break into the industry early or convince babysitters they've been diagnosed with a life-threatening ice-cream deficiency.
