What You'll Get
Today's side deal to Dearing Acting Studio gets you a four-week entry-level acting class for $50 (a $145 value). The studio is located at 4614 E. McDowell Road, though we should note that it will be moving to a new location in August, at which this Groupon will still be valid.
Since the Dearing Acting Studio's inception three years ago, it has been building a solid reputation as a top-notch resource for local actors and industry up-and-comers of all ages and experience levels. Today's side deal lets you register for an entry-level, four-week acting class, selecting one type of class from the studio's diverse curriculum that regularly includes sessions in improv, monologues, agency prep, and scene study (monthly offerings change to keep providing new challenges). Because class sizes are kept small, each student receives individualized attention from the studio's professional instructors. The talented staff consists of currently working actors, meaning you won't be misled and told to play a protagonist "more like Danny Tanner." After four weeks of fun-filled skill honing, you will not only walk away with more refined tools but also the confidence and positive attitude required of taking all small parts in stride and turning them into small actors. As testament to Dearing Acting Studio's quality of guidance, in the past year alumni of the studio's youth program have appeared on popular programs such as Grey's Anatomy, Cold Case, Mad TV, Two and a Half Men, and more. Call ahead to register for your acting class of choice.
Though aspiring actors are too busy memorizing their lines to provide reviews of Dearing Acting Studio, it has received recognition by the local media and industry insiders. Nickelodeon named the studio Best Day Camp in Phoenix, 2009. Actor and instructor Leeann Dearing parlayed her knowledge and experience to be crowned second runner-up in the 2009 Mrs. Arizona America competition, her very first pageant. Actor and acting coach Matthew Dearing was profiled by North Valley Magazine.
Industry insiders have also endorsed Dearing Acting Studio on their website:
- The Dearing’s [sic] and their instructors are some of the most talented, funny and entertaining people in town. I highly recommend their classes to anyone that wants to learn the ropes of auditioning, monologues and improv. – Patrice Farner
- So many actors want to work now and train later. They don't understand that when the big projects come through town, they won't get the role because they haven't earned it. They don't deserve it. Your studio is a real asset to this market! – Dani Green
- When I see the Dearing Acting Studio listed on an actor’s resume I know that they are continuing to receive excellent instruction from knowledgeable coaches who care. – Matt Englehart
