During Bay Area Acting Studio’s beginners, kids', and teens' classes, expert trainers impart acting basics to students, along with technical skills such as improvisation, cold reading, and on-camera exercises. Novice performers may use the 90-minute relaxed sessions as opportunities to build camaraderie with fellow players, discover a new hobby, or foster a mutual appreciation for Ray Liotta. In class, students will learn the art of improvisational acting, learning to create scenarios and think on their feet. Instructors also cover cold reading for potential auditions in the Antarctic and scene work to refine and build basic acting chops. On-camera exercises give pupils the opportunity to see their performances on film.

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.
