This extremely popular Ongoing Monthly Series is an extension course exclusively available for actors who have completed the 3-Day Film & TV Masterclass.

Each week, actors are offered a brand new acting tool to expand their acting toolkit.

The series is four classes in total, spread over four consecutive weeks.

Note: These classes fill out in minutes due to popularity and are often booked in advance. 

More Information:

It is a weekly opportunity to work on “the process,” ensuring that the actor remains in a “ready” state to nail every opportunity. Each week the actor will receive material to prepare. The class begins with a screen acting activity, and the session proceeds like an audition. All work is filmed and reviewed with feedback. These classes are hugely popular, and the studio cannot guarantee placement.

ONGOING CLASSES ARE OFFERED BOTH ONLINE & IN PERSON

If you have completed the 3-Day Masterclass, you can email us at info@leschanterystudio.com to be put on an advanced placement list with your preferred day or night.
