Are you ready to try this acting thing? Do you hear a lot of conflicting advice about what kind of classes you should take, or how you should start your journey to becoming an actor? Acting Studio Chicago is here for you.
Our Core Acting Program is a welcoming, friendly program designed with new actors in mind. This four part program introduces students to Michael Shurtleff’s Guideposts- the way we approach acting at ASC- and takes them from the very basics all the way to rehearsing and performing scenes from contemporary plays. Whether you’re interested in film, television, or the stage, the skills you learn in our core program will give you a strong start.
