Lessons & Pricing

Private Lessons

On-going private lessons are one-on-one custom tailored curriculums to meet the needs of each young actor. We work together to build on acting technique, career development and the goals of the actor while also adjusting to the actor's style of learning. We dig deeper into finding the actor's true creativity in film and the performing arts incorporating elements such as acting, music, dance, filmmaking, script writing, reading screenplays, stage presence and confidence building. This is a great option for serious working actors who want to focus on strong acting technique or students who are home schooled and looking for an extra curricular arts program.

TESTIMONIALS

"We feel very fortunate that our daughter has had the opportunity to train with Stephanie Halber.  She fosters an inviting, fun, and creative atmosphere in both her private coaching and acting classes.  In under a year Stephanie helped Lia to progress from finding an agent, to preparing for auditions, to booking her first part on The Flash. Stephanie is a wonderful resource of suggestions and techniques to address any challenges that arise.  Most importantly,  Lia always looks forward to their sessions together.  Thank you Stephanie!"

"Stephanie is an outstanding acting teacher and private coach for children. Her ability to build a safe and enjoyable rapport with kids is notable. Stephanie assisted Kegan in gaining the confidence to book more commercials and his first TV role on The Flash. The skills Kegan has learned have been invaluable not just behind the camera. I strongly recommend Stephanie as she is genuine, knowledgeable, committed and talented."
