Talent and Passion are essential elements in an actor’s life. Training is the glue that holds it all together.

Our instructors spend many hours each week teaching and coaching young actors in person or via Skype and Facetime. The main benefit? The student has their undivided attention. One-on-one sessions offer a personalized environment in which a young performer can feel safe and free to express themself while taking risks to reach new personal heights. Through private sessions, our coaches will be familiar with your performer, knowing their strengths and understanding how to improve their weaknesses. On-going individual training is essential to developing specific skills that might not be addressed in weekly group classes. Private coaching is a crucial tool for your child’s professional growth, and we highly recommend it for children who audition frequently or professionally.

We teach:

  • Technique training

  • Dialect coaching

  • Improvisation training

  • Monologue & scene study

  • Song selection and performance coaching

We also offer packages designed for specific needs.

  • Audition prep - Private coaching for audition preparation is about booking the job! We focus on giving actors the confidence and skill needed to make interesting choices in their approach to specific material.

  • College and high school Application Monologues/Auditions - We prepare students and parents for the college application process by focusing on the right fit for the individual student. Our coaches help with school choice, monologue selection, coaching the audition, interview skills and working the story of the song for musical theater preparation.

  • Self-tape auditions – These days actors are being asked for self tapes all the time.  Whether it is an audition they find on their own or through their agent or manager, a good self-tape is what can help them book the job.  Proper lighting, equipment and  space is essential. In addition to the taping, the DSAC team will coach you through the material.

  • Demo Reel Creation- Contact our collaborating partner, REELARC, the premier company in demo reel film creation.
