  1. Actor Lab – Monday & Tuesday nights 7-9 pm on ZOOM $150/month 
    The entertainment industry is changing. The competition for roles keeps getting tighter. We offer a lab to help you develop and sharpen the tools in your actor toolbox! In each class we use sides pulled from real auditions to work your skills.  Everyone gets up and works in each class. Instruction is specific to your needs and all skill levels are welcome. The goal is to help you work more by making sure that you feel confident in your abilities and giving you a safe space to “get the suck out.”

Curtis also offers group seminars that help explain the entertainment industry to parents and young actors who are new to the industry or how to use improvisation techniques to enhance your performance and creativity.
