$99 for a Four-Session Acting Course ($550 Value)

In each three-hour The Actor Taking Flight session, mentor Frederick Bailey guides 20–25 pupils away from their comfort zones, fortifying their courage reserves so they can bare all onstage. Carefully chosen practice scenes help build a foundation of relaxation, truthfulness, and concentration, with focus on movement, breathing, and character analysis. During each scene, a camera captures the students' performances to expand their technical understanding and give them a rock-solid alibi. After course completion, pupils have the opportunity to receive casting-call notices from the academy's parent company, FashionOne TV. Classes take place 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays–Thursdays. See the schedule for available dates.
