10-Month Acting Course for Kids, Teens and Adults.
If you are truly serious about launching your acting career, then the Limelight Academy is for you! We offer two affordable options for our 10-month intensive acting course:
Private one-on-one sessions or Small group classes.
MONTH 1 – IMPROV
This course allows the actor to perform without a script. Directors love to use improv on set, and it’s a very beneficial skill to have when doing commercials. Knowledge of improvisation is extremely helpful with interviewing/spokesperson skills as well.
MONTH 2 & 3 – COLD READING
The focus is on reading aloud from a script or other text without any rehearsal, practice or study in advance. Learning the skill of cold reading is very important to an actor’s career. 85% of auditions are based on a cold read.
MONTH 4 – SCENE STUDY
During our scene study instruction, students learn how to perform with multiple actors. This is a necessary component that all actors must learn.
MONTH 5 – ON CAMERA
Understanding acting for the camera is an important asset. We combine acting with how-to’s for performing on camera to enhance your performance and get those acting jobs.
MONTH 6 – COMMERCIAL ACTING
Commercials are a combination of acting AND selling a product. We will focus on the techniques involved in being an actor and a spokesperson. You can have a great career alone just doing commercials!
MONTH 7 – STAND-IN AND DOUBLING: ATMOSPHERE TRAINING
Learn how to stand-in/photo double for an actor that fits you. There’s a lot of work in the Stand In world, and it pays really well.
MONTH 8 – PREPARING TO TAKE HEADSHOTS
Agents and Casting directors see your headshots and resume before meeting you in person. During this month we will go over what you will do at your photo sessions. We will pick out what to wear, decide on your image, practice poses and discuss what not to eat or drink prior to the shoot and more. You will receive up to 4 great headshots with different looks. Headshots are your calling card. This important step cannot be missed.
MONTH 9 – SUBMISSIONS
Stay ahead of the game by learning the business behind the entertainment industry. Learn the process of submitting to agents and casting directors and how online breakdowns work.
MONTH 10 – THE RECAP
We will have a refresher course of all that was learned during the previous 9 months. A great opportunity to ask questions and strengthen your newly acquired skills.
