“Acting skills are life skills and acting can make an enormous contribution in people’s lives. It’s not that you use acting skills in your life, but what acting generates and releases in each person is significant: confidence, creativity, spontaneity, imagination, connection, authenticity, liberty and vitality.
Once activated, these elements within us begin to move out from the bandwidth of the acting class into our life and business and relationships. Hence acting being one of the most significant pathways and trigger points to us understanding what we’re capable of. Acting courses such as those contained in our Open Access Program devote 6 hours per week to you, and are a self-investment which have enormous results and outcomes for each individual.

That’s our commitment to you here at ACA to match your commitment second by second and create an environment of meaning and momentum.” Dean Carey, Founding Creative Director
