Kid's Corner

LA Acting Studios' kids classes are taught by professional actress Rosie Garcia, who is a series regular on the CW's hit TV show “Jane the Virgin”.
We focus on building self confidence with young children in a caring and supporting way that leads to rapid growth with acting in front of the camera. All of our sessions are filmed and parents will have a link to download the footage and see their child's work on camera. This dramatically helps both the parents and children learn from watching themselves on film.

Within the first three weeks, your child will be learning all of the techniques desired by Hollywood casting directors. Techniques taught such as mastering camera angles, blocking, movement, body language, scene analysis, character development, line delivery, and most importantly, how to truly embody the characters.

The final week we film the entire scene with a full crew in one of our six-custom film sets which results in professional demo reel footage for your child. This greatly sets your child apart from other kids competing in the industry. Children can develop professional commercial, dramatic and comedic demo reels. 

Our young actors will work on commercial acting techniques, improvisation skills, cold reading, ensemble acting, relaxation and concentration skills, develop audition skills and expert listening skills and much more!

Our goal is to create confident kids who excel in both TV and film. Exceptional work = Exceptional results!  Enroll today in this 4 week monthly workshop and watch your child learn and grow quickly in their film career.
Children who successfully complete this program will be part of our actor database and eligible to be considered for roles in our 100 episode web series and film productions. (No guarantees) All film roles are earned. We have a philosophy of lifting up our actors and helping them to achieve greatness in the film industry.
