Adult Classes (18 and over)

Overview

 

At the Andi Matheny Acting Studios, our goal is to offer the highest quality training possible to prepare actors for a career in the thriving southeast TV and film industry.  We offer three sessions a year for Adults 18 and older:  Fall, Winter and Spring.  Fall and Winter are usually 12 classes per session (11 weeks of classes plus Scene O Rama, our informal showcase to end the session.  NOTE - our usual schedule has been altered due to Covid-19.  Most questions about the online format are answered on our FAQ page.)  Spring is full of surprises and we may offer alternative classes and schedules - stay connected to us on our email list or on our Facebook page for all class announcements!

 

Class curriculum includes the Acting Core 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 environment where actors feel safe to discover and use their own uniqueness in their art.

Students new to our studio start in our Acting Core Exercise classes.  The ACE classes give new actors an immediate understanding of the authenticity required for TV and film, and give more experienced actors a quicker way to connect to a script and a greater chance of booking an audition. 

 

Returning students continue their growth with our Scene Study classes which combine improvisation, advanced acting exercises and continued scene study for actors to work on all facets of their craft.  Actors are encouraged to choose their own scripts to work on roles that they could easily be cast in, to roles that challenge and stretch their abilities - and casting opportunities!

Andi Matheny teaches the Monday Night Master Class (this class is invitation only - for more info on the Master Class click here) Scene Study Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday and Wednesday night classes.

Eugenie Bondurant teaches the Acting Core Exercise class and as a certified Meisner Instructor offers special Meisner classes throughout the year.

Enrollment requirements for NEW STUDENTS:  Agent or actor referral.  Age 18 and older.  If no referral available, contact us for a private interview.  We may also request a monologue on tape or a video of your previous work.

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
