A Greeting from Andrew Wood

An acting class for the ages

You’ve got the passion. You’ve got the talent. You’ve got the staying power. You’re serious. You’re ready to work. The last thing you want is a Los Angeles acting class that turns out to be gimmicky and superficial, an acting class that fails to take your talent seriously. You also don’t want to find yourself heading into an important audition with the feeling that you lack a solid foundation in craft. What you do need is an acting class that can help you channel all of your heart and effort into work that makes an IMPACT, work that Hollywood gatekeepers won’t soon forget. If this sounds like you, then Andrew Wood Acting Studio is the place to put your passion to work.
Join our ten-week acting class, the Essentials Workshop, and learn a powerful, in-depth approach to acting taught at the world-famous Yale School of Drama. The approach is presented in intimate, intensive classes, all with master teacher Andrew Wood, who for nineteen years has been challenging students to do compelling and memorable work.
Call (323) 836-2176 now for more information on a great class in acting technique and scene study starting soon!

Satisfied Students

“Andrew’s class is what most Los Angeles Acting classes are not: Technique based rather than self-indulgent emotion based. He teaches actors to take the focus off themselves and onto the other person…to get the other person to feel something. The actor becomes active, and immediately captivating.”
