Acting classes teach students how to simulate emotions and imitate mannerisms, skills useful for aspiring film stars and undercover robots. Master the art of mimicry with today's Groupon: for $299, you get enrollment in Actors’ Boot Camp at The Acting Corps in North Hollywood (a $799 value). Morning and evening classes are available, and are held in three-hour increments five times a week for four weeks.

Heralded by such revered performers as Rainn Wilson and Sydney Pollack, The Acting Corps whips amateur actors into accomplished board-treaders during intense, month-long workshops led by industry professionals. During the four-week program, talented instructors mingle Meisner and Michael Chekhov concepts with concentrated scene studies to foster dynamic artists capable of being authentic and present in a dramatic scene, high-stakes audition, or crowded elevator.

Voice and movement work prepare students for dramatic fits of frenzied shouting and windmill guitar strumming, and optional Daily Acting Workouts provide an open venue for honing the class’s myriad tools and techniques. By eschewing the outdated techniques and silent training reels of yesteryear, Actor’s Boot Camp imparts practical tips about the industry’s current practices to aid students in landing star-making roles and influential agents.

The Acting Corps

The Acting Corps, a school endorsed by Oscar winner Sydney Pollack as well as Rainn Wilson of The Office, takes a modern approach to acting instruction. In classes with an average of 16 students, creativity flows unimpeded and students overhear the whispered names of Hollywood’s best agents quite clearly. Actors with MFA degrees lead programs that help acting students find an authentic style, and also pilot advanced classes with mock auditions that challenge experienced actors. Four- or six-week acting boot camps incorporate aspects of the Meisner technique and the Michael Chekhov technique. In classes engineered for international acting students, teachers elucidate methods for developing a convincing American accent or faking a convincing cheeseburger craving.

Carin the technique teacher has been an inspiration.She is great. I think it is great you can give actors a chance to explore the Acting Corps at a reasonable fee. I would recommend a friend.

The Acting Corps Boot Camp course 1 is a great way to learn the basics of acting. This one-month intensive course includes three different classes instructed by young but very experienced actors. I'm currently taking Boot Camp 1 and I totally love it. I'm passionate about acting and taking this course has helped me open my horizons. I am excited to learn as much as possible in order to apply it in the real acting world.
