Overview of Our Hands-on Acting Workshops

Curious how to become an actor, but unsure of what skills you need to succeed in the industry? Do you have a background in acting, but wish to make the transition from theatre to television and film? At New York Film Academy South Beach we offer a trio of short-term acting workshops in the Miami neighborhood that have been created around a curriculum and methodology that has helped aspiring actors achieve their dreams for over two decades.

From the first day of their workshop, students find themselves in front of the camera, learning not just the essentials of acting every actor relies upon, but also those elements of acting on film that one must do to truly learn. As such, New York Film Academy South Beach’s philosophy of learning by doing rests at the heart of our acting workshops. Students are not only regularly filmed on camera within class and during faculty-assisted workshops, but they collaborate with students from our Miami film school and perform in those students’ original films.

In addition, each acting workshop is taught by our faculty of professional actors who boast an impressive resume of film, television, and commercial credits alongside performances on and Off Broadway. Students study and perform in our world-class studios, rehearsing scenes and performances that will then be filmed. In addition to gaining substantial experience on camera, students also learn how to prepare for an audition and receive a demo reel of their performances that will be a useful tool in landing acting gigs.

One-Week Acting Workshop Overview

Created as an intensive short-term workshop in which students spend a week fully committing themselves to their acting training, gaining the confidence and know-how to act in front of the camera. Whether you’re interested in acting in film and television, or also doing stage acting as well, the one-week acting workshop is an ideal introduction to the craft of acting with the focus on helping students establish a strong foundation in acting fundamentals.

Over the course of five days, students will work with their classmates and their instructors—who are accomplished professional actors who remain active in the industry—to hone their abilities and sensibilities as actors. Students take a variety of classes that cover a wide number of topics including, Relaxation, Method Acting, Scene Study, Movement, Voice, and Acting for Camera. In addition, students can expect to familiarize themselves with acting for the camera from the first day of the workshop, learning how a screen performance is fundamentally different from stage acting. The workshop emphasizes students learning how to control their bodies and voice on camera while also getting used to performing on sets that contain numerous distractions, from crew members to responding to different directorial cues.

The One-Week Acting Workshop at New York Film Academy South Beach is the perfect choice for aspiring actors to obtain a foundation in the essentials of acting for film while also getting the chance to decide if they wish to pursue further education in acting at our Miami location.
