Without actors, prisoners would have to be released from jail to play themselves in made-for-TV movies. Keep the streets safe with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get four weekly group acting, voice, or modeling classes at Take 2 Performers Studio (a $109 value).
Take 2 Performers Studio's industry-experienced instructors sculpt aspiring child, teen, and adult performance artists into models, singers, and actors with the skills and confidence to storm the stage and screen. The voice program chaperones students through pop, classical, or musical-theater singing styles founded on sound breathing, warm-up, and posture habits. By the end of each introductory course, students will be empowered to sing a full song before an audience containing at least one non-Beanie Baby member.
Alternatively, the modeling program builds runway and photo-shoot skills atop steely confidence and positive self-image. Along with instruction in public speaking and camera interviewing, instructors cover how to dress impressively for all occasions and discern the truth behind timeworn adages, such as "Never wear white to spaghetti night." Or let the acting program take pretenders as young as 4 from movement and diction basics through audition skills, scene work, and developing a completely untraceable fake accent. Take 2 regularly invites Los Angeles agents to audition its students, who have appeared in A&E's Cold Case Files, NBC's Medium, and in national commercials for McDonald's and Toys"R"Us.
All programs slate new students for an introductory semiprivate lesson to assess goals and discern the best course for the three remaining group lessons. Acting, voice, and modeling curricula are each highly goal oriented, tracking student progress with color-coded bracelets that automatically change hues each time an audience member sheds a tear. The studio schedules sessions five days a week, including evening and weekend options built for moonlighters.
