Adult Classes (18 and over)
At the Andi Matheny Acting Studios, our goal is to offer the highest quality training possible to prepare actors anywhere in the US (and the world) for a career as a working actor. Our studio had its beginnings in the beautiful city of St. Petersburg, Florida and is now currently offering online classes that focus on audition technique for film and television.
Class curriculum includes the Act ALIVE exercises specific to our training program, scene study and improvisation. We specialize in an accelerated method to get actors to connect quickly and truthfully to scripts. And we've cultivated a supportive and diverse environment where actors feel safe to discover and use their own uniqueness in their art.
Students new to our studio begin with concentrated study of the Act ALIVE exercises. This training gives new actors an immediate understanding of the authenticity required for TV and film, and gives more experienced actors a quicker way to connect to a script and a greater chance of booking an audition.

Returning students can continue their growth in subsequent Act ALIVE classes which are constantly mixing it up with new challenges and exercises. We also offer a Working Actor Drop In class once a month, which combines improvisation with advanced acting exercises and focuses on self-tape auditions for TV and film. Actors are encouraged to choose their own scripts to work on roles that they could easily be cast in, as well as roles that challenge and stretch their abilities—and casting opportunities!

Are you wondering if an online class is right for you? Here's a testimonial:
"During this quarantine I have grown to feel more confident and comfortable with self taping. I’ve had the chance to meet and perform for major casting directors in the industry. Andi continues to adapt to circumstances and these online classes are a great example of the type of dedication, care, and education you can expect from one of the best acting coaches there is!” - Nick Masi
